Thank you kindly Darm and Jenn. I always liked chocolate chocolate chocolate (and still do) but have grown to like a good white cake (no yellow here) yet I always struggle with it. It can be expensive, time consuming and frustrating when experimenting with cake. I think sometimes the browing of the top can be misleading as well as I have experimented with lower temperatures also and I still can’t find either the right cake or the right way to finally bake it.
Jenn the tower didn’t take too long, the small details like making the fondant, gumpaste, heating it, coloring and cutting it are more tedious. I really enjoy the sculpting part and find it relaxing. I think I put maybe two solid days into it then took a break and went back to it in bits and pieces. Thank you!
