Neatness counts!

My Mom always told me that in needlepoint, the back should look as good as the front.  I think it’s safe to say, we can say the same about cakes.  The inside should be just as neat (and tasty!) as the outside.

Use the thinnest possible layer of fondant, we roll ours to 1/16th of an inch.  Your cake layers and buttercream layers should be even.  Use a ruler to measure if you have to, we do!

Here at the bakery we think all of these small details are very important, neatness does count and says something about our work.  (Besides, I think my Mom would be real proud!)

  1. I wish I could dig into that right now. Would youmind sharing your Chocolate Cake recipe? I loved your blackberry buttercream one from a few weeks ago.

  2. Oh how I would love to work there and learn all of those tricks and how to make such beautiful creations…. amazing!

  3. I love when I’m taught new things. This is awesome! This will always be something I remember while making future cakes (PS: I’m a beginner at this cake making addiction and only do it as a hobby…..however, a perfectionist so this post is a priceless one!)

  4. One of the things I love is to see the inside of the cake as well as the outside. A piece like this being presented is just as breathtaking as the outside. The presentation is beautiful.
