I was wondering....is it calorie free? I mean surely you wouldn't offer me a calorie filled cake. :D

Is the cut out (well, all the decorative bits) bit fondant? I have NO idea how to use that stuff, or even where to get it here. Or heaven forefend, MAKE it! :eek:

yes!

I cheated and used ready made white fondant and then coloured it with food colouring.

It is quite ea\sy to use... it is a bit tough and then you roll it out and it becomes easy to work with. It is very similar to pastry.. However, it would be hard to make such great decorations as Mumof2 has!! I can just about 'line' a white cake with it!!

I just did a google for you and apparently they sell it at walmart and also at somewhere called "Hobby Lobby" A company in the US called 'Wilton' makes it :yes:

What's cheating about that? :unsure: I wouldn't have a clue as to where to even begin to look for it here. :unsure:

I try really hard not to shop at Walmart, Josh. :( Hobby Lobby isn't near me (never been to or seen one, but know they exist). Yes, I would imagine it would be Wilton. That's the "all things baker/decorating" oriented company here. Personally, I find their pans overpriced and not so great, and their colors aren't the best either. They just seem to have a monopoly on the products. :sigh:

However, I am NOT a baker, so don't go by a single thing I just said! :lol:

Thanks for searching on it for me! (Sometimes I overlook the MOST obvious solutions). :sigh:

Wow! That cake is terrific, Mairead!

I can bake, but the decorating tends to leave quite a bit to be desired! :rolleyes:

You should be able to find premade fondant in the Wilton section at Michael's or JoAnn's, Tink. Also, some party supply stores carry it.

It's fairly easy to make--although it can be a bit finicky in high humidity or heat--but I really don't like the taste of it. Picky eater--that's me! :lol:

I don't much like any sort of frosting at all, but if you can make cool designs like Mairead's with it, I could learn to use it. :D Maybe. :unsure:

That is brill... I don't have a talented bone in my body. If you're worried about how it looks, and you so shouldn't be, go and look at cake wrecks where professionals have their creations on show lol....

I just read a rather involved article on making "real" (read, pastry chef) buttercream. It's much more tricky than I ever thought, but I sure do understand why it's so nice. :yes:

Even though I don't like frosting, I'll have a dab of buttercream. :spring: My favorite is simple whipped cream though. :yes: It doesn't hold well or last, so you don't often find it, but Publix does a nice whipped cream topping as does WDW! :yes:

yep! whipped cream is good for me too! :yes:
