Or you could try making and placing sugarpaste (fondant) drapes straight onto the cake and then once they harden you can pipe onto them.
Just saw your reply - can't believe there is a filter system that has censored that! There is a town in Ireland called Effin which was removed from Facebook and caused an uproar amongst residents!
Hello all, I have a question about the above. I generally use gold lustre dust mixed with rejuevenator spirit which gives a nice gold effect. However I have seen some cakes with the most amazing gold finish. This does not look like gold leaf for example but rather something which is painted on.   Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can achieve this?   Many thanks Amanda xx
Thanks for your replies ladies. The client in question has not come back to me after my suggestions on this. Perhaps she wants to stick with the original design.   thanks again and have a great day   Amanda x
Thanks for your reply and your lovely comment about the Alice in Wonderland cake. I did enjoy making that one.   I had a look at your link, thanks.

Hi there, if you sculpt it when it is still partially frozen this will work much better than carving once defrosted. I freeze sponge cakes and they are always fine.   Good luck with it Amanda xx
I also only discuss price through private messages. Personally I would completely ignore these types of comments. I would want to respond but the people who make ignorant comments like this really are not worth your time and effort in replying. If you are running a business you will always have 50 other tasks to be done which are much more worthy of your time.   It is hard sometimes when people are so stupid but you have to get a thick skin and if their comments...
Oh my goodness (is the polite reaction) I have forwarded this to my facebook page to share with anyone out there who might consider a budget wedding cake
Hi there, I always use sugarpaste (fondant) with gum tragacanth added (is ty short for tylo?). I don't generally get cracking as such but the petals are delicate and sometimes they do break. I always make more than I need to allow for some breakage.   good luck with them Amanda
