almonds and birthday cakes
ChefTalk.com Top Picks
So interesting....you made and covered the cakes with marzipan. I have never used marzipan to that extent (covering cakes) , by the pictures , it looks like fondant. (maybe its just me) .
Do you buy your marzipan or do you make it yourself ?
I use fondant depending the cake I am going to make. I put a crumb coat of buttercream first then the fondant. I have not posted all my cakes pics but I certainly do enjoy working with sugar art.
Did you learn this all by yourself ? Did someone teach you ?
Its always interesting to learn how other bakers work, what inspires them.
so,it's a mixture of ground almonds sugar and egg whites yes it's kind of marzipan.i usually make it myself,most of the times when i buy it,it doesn't taste like almonds to me so to play it safe i do it myself no nobody taught me i look around watch cooking tv programms surf the internet look in books but haven't got any lessons,i just adore baking and cooking.
