    Sir you are a gift to us all. To think only a few years ago the thought of taking classes from such a highly skilled Chef as yourself would be impossible. Thank you we are a lucky bunch.. So my favorite part of this class was the way you brought the consolation to life!! Thanks for the airbrush, damp cloth and brush work it was amazing. I’m 70 and love making cakes,
    Thanks, Jim Carpenter

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Thanks Jim, you are a kind man. I follow you 4 years behind.

  2. Penny Pruwitan says:

  3. Yiyita says:

    Hello Chef Yener, Thank you for sharing the ingenious techniques to create such an imaginative project. It is a triumph.
    In the UK we are forbidden to use wire in direct contact with cake. Inserting plastics straws to hold the wire would be clumsy. Please can you suggest an elegant but strong solution to support the meteorite shower, Saturn an it’s rings and the heavy space rocket. Wooden skewers or toothpicks would be fine for the lighter planets but not robust enough for the heavier objects.
    Thank you Denise

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Hi Denise,
      Thanks for your comments. If wooden skewers is your preference to hold the meteorite shower, soak the skewers in water for 10 minutes, flame dry and then bend it ( it will stay bent ).

      1. Denise Bitchener says:

        Hello Chef Yener,
        Thank you for this suggestion. Again you are full of ingenious invention. I had forgotten this way of bending wood…it is used extensively in boat building but obviously on a larger scale.

        Hi, could you explain thus method a little further… Flame dry? Regards

        1. Serdar Yener says:

          Hi Kelly Please do me a favour. Could you please tell me the exact time of the tutorial that I am talking about your question. Thank you

    Like all Your tutorials, this one is an amazing too Mr. Yeners. You can’t imagine how much struggle was for me when I was making my cake to look like space. I was using tiny candy pearls.They kept falling down whenever I was touching the cake.
    I just learned from You the coolest way to make the starts.
    I’m a beginner. I love all Your cakes and center pieces but some of them are only for professionals. Your last two cake tutorials are for my kind . I can’t wait to try out the new textures and tricks. I’ve learned a lot! Thank You! You are the best!
    Sincerely Erika
