  1. Thankyou everyone:) You have given me something to go on if it happens again!
  2. Hello there:) I had an issue with some Italian buttercream on the weekend that curdled on me after I added some Cannoli filling for taste. My buttercream consists of : 12 or 1 cup of egg whites 2 1/4 cup of sugar + 1/4 cup water heated to 240degrees 6 sticks of butter 1tsp vanilla Once I made the Italian buttercream it looks spot on but then I added 3/4 cup of cannoli filling => ( Impasta Ricotta, confectioners sugar, mascarpone, marsala and vanilla). Adding the cannoli cream made it taste absolutley delicious, was such a same I had to throw it out! I am just wondering if there is some unwritten rule about what I can flavour my buttercream with Thankyou for your help! -- Jane

  4. WOW! you are all so talented . I thought I would share some of my cakes but I havent done that many yet! ( getting there tho!). This one is a test cake sent to a local Deli to see if it will sell. I am trying to work with chocolate more as I am moving back to Australia and the current trend is chocolate based decorations at the moment. Buttercream is not popular at all. First time working with fondant Roses My Australia day cake!
  5. Thankyou!:) I piped all the flowes on directly on the cupcakes. They way I managed not to bump any of the flowers is that I started with the Roses first and then set them up in the fridge. Then I moved unto the other flowers finishing with the " Marigold" look to fill in any spaces. The Roses arent perfect as I had trouble getting the right angles when I piped, but that didnt matter as every other flower pressed against the roses so it hid all the flaws;).. -- Jane:)
