ABC Cake Decorating: Your Base of Cakes
Let's say you somehow got talked into baking the cake for your little niece's birthday party. You were thinking of a Betty Crocker box, and icing from the supermarket. Then you find out Niece would just adore you if you'd bake a cake in the shape of a certain Disney princess. You can't buy that at Costco, and that luxe cupcakery you indulge yourself with can't help out either. Now what?
a character baking pan and get it done yourself. ABC Cake Decorating Shoppe in Orange sells and rents scores of cake pans shaped like cartoon characters, and other random molds like a palm tree or a beer mug. Problem solved!
Well, problem solved if you know how to bake already. ABC is a large specialty store with a wide selection of ingredients, pans and tools for the expert baker. Candy making stuff? Sure. Need a brown paper cupcake liner so your home baked treats look like the ones at the chichi cupcake shops? Yup. Rental equipment like multi-tiered wedding cake stands? Got that.
Wait, you don't have the slightest idea how to bake or decorate cakes and cookies? Then take a class. In the four decades that ABC has been in business, battalions of Scouts, shoals of schoolkids, and droves of DIY-ers have learned to squeeze colored goo artfully from a piping bag.
Still flustered by your lacking cake skills? Have ABC bake you a custom cake in their production kitchen--and why not use that princess cake pan for your niece. I could have told you in paragraph one that their pros will bake and decorate just about anything you want, but then you'd miss the
work fun in doing it yourself.
