  • Have a wet and dry hand towels to clean knives, blades and cutters regularly to consistently achieve clean cuts. Also be sure to clean the table with your wet towel, and than the dry towel each time you are about to roll out any fondant. Use a bit of shortening or vegetable fat to prevent the fondant from sticking to the table.
  • This is art, and no method or technique is set in stone. This is why we recommend you watch the entire tutorial first before you start gathering all the things in the list above. You may think of ways you might substitute tools or techniques with your own ideas.

    Dear Master!!! I am always happy to watch all your lessons. I bought a course on this fabulous cake and I want to make it for my granddaughter’s birthday. As always, you tell everything in great detail, but I have a few questions … Is it possible to use another cream inside the cake – not ganache? And is it realistic to deliver such a cake by car or does it need to be collected locally (I mean the decoration)?I’ve never used chocolate for gluing … usually Edible Glue for Icing and Cake. What’s better? I would be grateful for your answers …

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Hi, if you don’t want to use ganache, buttercream is the next choice. Chocolate is instant glue and does not need drying time. That is why I prefer especially for gluing small touch areas. If you place the box on a car seat that can absorb knockings will be okay instead of the floor.

    Hi Yener,
    Instead of pastillage, may I using modelling paste mixing with CMC or tylose powder to making the curl veins?
    Kind Regards

    I want to make it for my Birthday.
    Do you use real chocolat or Fake chocolat?
    And if it is real chocolat do I have to temper it?

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      I used compound chocolate

  10. Robyn Bell says:

    Hi, can l please ask why do you wrap your cakes in gladwrap sometimes between ganache coats and not others and do you do that for normal cakes as well. Thanks

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Wrapping cakes with glad wrap has few benefits top 2 is important
      1 . Giving my hands a possibility to shape cake like shaping a dry flexible block without making a mess. Push some areas with tools also . Under the glad wrap, you can apply force to the surface to the limit .
      2. If I have to keep the cake in the fridge more than necessary time, to avoid condensation.
      I do that for normal shaped cakes only for reason no 2.. sometimes..

      1. Robyn Bell says:

        Thanks for your reply.

    Please tell me how to upload my photos of my toadstool cake i made chef Yener

    1. Serkan Yener says:

      Hi KYRKI,
      Normally it would be below the video on the tutorial’s page under the ‘Members Projects’ section but that sections is currently not working.
      You can either upload it in your profile under the ‘Media’ tab, or you can email it to us to info(at)yenersway.com…or both 🙂
      Thanks, look forward to seeing it!

  14. KYRKI says:

    Serdar thank you so much for the great tutorials. Currently I am making the toadstool. I have a problem with the white chocolate as a “glue”. I don’t have the cold spry. Do you have any advice how to cool the white chocolate so it can hold the brunches?

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Yes identify the spots you going to touch together and put a little ( just a little) white chocolate and wait till both side set . Apply some more chocolate at the some spot. You will see holding happens very quick.Good luck

      1. KYRKI says:

        Thank you. I will try it. In a few days i will upload my cake so you can see and comment.

  15. Марина Осипчик says:

    Спасибо, Сердар, очень хорошая работа.
    Translation: Thank you, Serdar, very good work.

  16. Grisel Borgos says:

    Love it Chef Yeners..I always learn new techniques in your tutorials. Love the way it lights up. I have a question what are the chocolate warmer that you always keep your chocolate in call? I want to get two and I don’t know how to look for them by. Chocolate warmer or do they have another name? Thanks.

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      It is a cheap simple chocolate fondue cup. You can find them in shopping malls. Large stores which sells kitchenware.
