taking the cake out of the pan
When you dump the cake out of the pan, do you leave it like that to frost or do you flip the cake back over to frost it? Usually, when I bake a cake the top (when it first comes out of the oven) is rounded. Therefore, if I dump it out it doesn't sit flat on the surface. How do I fix this problem?
Also, I am doing a cake for a graduation. The picture of the cake that the girl brought me, the cake was done in fondant. She doesn't want her cake in fondant, she wants buttercream. The cake has polka dots and stripes also made out of fondant and some of the polka dots are layered.(ex: big brown circle with small pink circle on top). Also, the top layer looks like a small round cake with a square piece of fondant lying on top with a tassel attached to the top. There is also a rolled diploma on the top made from fondant. I was thinking about doing the decorations from chocolate. Do you have any ideas on how I could do the graduation hat, tassel and diploma using the chocolate technique. Also, will it work if I paint the chocolate on was paper and use a circle cookie cutter to make the polka dots and then attach them with buttercream. I guess I'm afraid the decorations are not gonna stay in place. Please help me!!!!
