So I've been coaxed from my "retirement from cakes" to do my boss's wedding cake (yay.) They've got a 14" WASC, 11" choc, 8" carrot and 6" choc. The cake will be displayed on a cut piece of birch log, but that is going to be too heavy for me to transport all together with the cake on top. How strong are theWilton silver cake drums? Two glued together? & It's for tomorrow so I won't have time to order anything :-/ Any input/suggestions would be highly appreciated.
I've never sprayed my entire cake but I never wipe off my wet spatula. I just run it under HOT water, give it a shake and smooth away, works great, especially on meringue based butter-creams.
Yes, you can use real ribbon. It will absorb oil from the bc or fondant though and discolor (darken) from it. Some decorators line the ribbon with wax paper and some just pregrease the ribbon so it'll be darker but at least the same color all over and be even.
i bit of Royal or even some candy melts should work fine. You might try gum glue(melt/disolve a bit of gumpaste in warm water) I'd practice first to make sure it held though.
I want pics too! these are pretty without looking too fussy.
I totally agree with Kakeladi!!! Love WASC! It's almost like a pound cake, nice and sturdy under fondant and at the bottom of five tier cakes too! This cake goes the distance! lol!
My own, hands down! I love using an IMBC but when I'm in a hurry I'll use an ABC and I ALWAYS use real butter, no shortening. I hate shortening bc's, my tongue always has a grease slick on it after eating it, so gross. I'm ridiculously picky these days!
Maybe use the bottom part of a cupcake, I'd use the jumbo ones if possible, on each side of the "head" with a wide fondant band connecting them. You could also sculpt them out of rice krispies too if you don't have the pans. Good luck!
I would think the mini would work fine, I guess it depends on the effect you're going for, lol. When I did mine I was just starting to to cakes and didn't have a round pan or the means to buy one just yet so I just ran out and bought some jumbo chocolate muffins from Costco, lol, they were excellent proportions!
I agree a smooshed ball of fondant or frosting blob should be fine. If you're really concerned you could use a bit of wax paper under it too. Toys are supposed to adhere to pretty strict leadtesting after that fiasco a few years ago so you probably have nothing to worry about
