I'm available on Craftsy to answer all your questions regarding my Little Pink Dress Cake Class
Here are some of the common questions:
Q. These cakes are just beautiful. About how much do they weigh when finished, and can you share some tips on transporting them to event sites?
Q. Could you clarify where the cardboard rounds (with center holes cut) go in the sequence of stacked cake rounds? I'm a little confused.
Q. What's the minimum number of days ahead of time to start the cake? How do you plan and break out the work sessions to be sure the cake will be done in time?
Q. It looks as if the back of the bodice that you're carving is a bit flatter than the template. How much of a curve should the back have?
Q. Hi Anne, could you be more specific about how you work in and out of the freezer as you do the crumb coat? Do you put on a partial coat of buttercream and then put both icing bowl and cake in the freezer for a while, then finish it? Thanks!
Q. In general, about how long ahead of time can I finish the cake before transporting and serving it?
Q. On the hand-painted bodice, did you paint the panel before applying or paint it on the cake? I'd love to know more about how you made that gorgeous panel!
Q. Anne, I'm curious why we use icing here as glue instead of the Tylose or piping gel. How do you decide which "glue" to use at each step?
Q. Would it be okay to do this step of the bodice in advance? If so, how many days? Thank you!! What a great class 🙂
Q. Can you state how many pieces of cake or serving on The Pink Dress Cake and approxiametly how much should we charge for the cake?
Q.I'm going to make this beautiful dress as a Dummies first so i would like to know the approx height Of your skirt and if you know also the bodice. Thanks for a wonderful tutorial!
Q. I love this class! thanks for teaching us this cake style....in the third cake with the decoupage technique, what did you paint on top of the wafer pieces to make it shiny?
Q. Hi Anne - Great class, stunning designs. If I was to do the bodice in cake (as for a pregnant lady), what size cakes would you suggest. I was thinking maybe a 10" square by maybe 4-5" in height. Now when I carve it should I cut it in half and use two cake boards or would it be best to carve the bodice in one whole piece and leave it to the recipients discretion as to how to cut and serve. Hope that makes sense to you.
