Create A Cake Party – Girl Scout Troop 858 June 3, 2009

I had the opportunity to assist Girl Scout Troop 858 in obtaining their “Cake Artist” junior badge. We had a wonderful time creating individual cakes in all different color combinations and decorating. Once the girls finished their own cakes they assisted me with making marshmallow fondant roses to put on the cake for their parents.

The group learned about how buttercream icing is made and colored, usage of decorator bags and tips, cake baking secrets, cakes of the world, what items are used in a bakery and so much more.

Many thanks to all of the girls and Christine for the opportunity to be apart of your learning experiences.

Ferrari Enzo Birthday Cake March 13, 2009


Every man’s dream. Only alot cheaper. This birthday cake is a white cake covered in fondant.

Here’s the email I received from the customer:

Pam (Your Awesome),
I just wanted to let you know how pleased everyone was with the Ferrari Cake you made for Sidney’s B-day. The cake exceeded our expectations. When I told everyone we ordered a cake in the shape of an Enzo Ferrari, a ten year old birthday party came to mind. When they all seen the cake, it was so Sidney (he’s 32) and everyone thought the world of it. On top of the artistic value of it, the cake was delicious. I would recommend Twisted Sifter to anyone requiring your services.

Binder clips and cake decorating? January 6, 2009

Filed under: How to................. — thetwistedsifter @ 8:44 pm

Binder clips aren’t just for paper anymore.  The clips can be used to keep the twist tight on your pastry bag.  This helps keep the frosting from ooozzzing out of the top while you work and it keeps the bag closed to keep the frosting from drying out.  Lastly, they are washable and reuseable.
