From Nuisance to "No Problem"
The ECG has always hated last-minute orders. She hates the idea of turning down the money, but REALLY hates producing cakes the LOOK like they've been thrown together. So, she decided to fix it. See how these 4 tips will change your view of the dreaded Last-Minute Order
1) Message Plaque Stencils
These little sets have been a life-saver for the ECG. She stencils 3 or 4 of each of these on Gum Paste when she has a few extra minutes, and when she gets a last minute cake order she can plunk one of these bad-boys on top, and doesn't have to spend a second making messages. Best part is, they come in sets by season, so you can stock up on plaques in anticipation of a coming holiday. Check out how easy they are to make:
