RE: Cake Art



I bought a Wilton cookie cutter shaped like a big snowflake and as I was perusing their line of goods I saw everything the average person could possibly need to make their own work of art. For example, sugar flowers were pre-made, all one had to do was place them where you want them. They have a ton of stuff available. One needn't be an artist to achieve a certain look. Is that cheating?

I call it using my time & resources wisely. We have a cake decorating supply store near me that sells every part of the cake (including the blank cakes in various sizes) pre made. Sheets of fondant, flowers & other objects, even edible strings of pearls. Sure, I know how to make all that shit, but I've gotten lazy in my old age and would rather pay a few dollars more for the pre made pieces, and just assemble when I get home. It's well worth not having to wash 200 pans, bowls, pastry bags, frosting tips, ETC

RE: Cake Art

I bought my daughter a gingerbread house kit and I even fucked that up. I should have let her put the frosting on. She probably would have done a better job, but it was hard to squeeze out of the bag so I put it on. I guess I put the frosting on wrong because the pieces are all crooked and the house looks like shit.

So I can't even do that much less make a cake from scratch that looks nice.

the icing that comes with those gingerbread house kits is absolute crap. Technically you're supposed to put the sides together first, then let it sit & harden for 2 hours before putting the roof on, then let it sit & harden for another 2 hours before decorating. What fucking kid is going to wait for 4 hours to decorate a house. Not mine, they ate all the fricken candy before the walls were set.

I buy the giant gingerbread cookies for my grandbrats, and use canned frosting. Works out well that way, and I get to send a couple of pounds of sugar frosted suger home with them hah

RE: Cake Art

Yeah the frosting was shit, when I piped it around the windows it wouldn't stick and dripped down the wall. My daughter even told me it was the crappiest gingerbread house she's ever seen. Then she ate the gummy Rudolph that was supposed to be standing in the snow, but kept falling over.

I may as well let her eat the whole house just to get rid of it. It's a damn eyesore.

RE: Cake Art

It would be kinda fun being the first one to cut into those cakes. I would probably want a head on a plate.
