If I were going to attempt this, I would first cut a circle out of gumpaste then cut straight down to the center then accross to the right. Like cutting a 1/4 wedge out of it. Then cut the other pieces out of colored gumpaste and layer them accordingly. Use a little water or piping gel for glue.
I only use a flower nail on cakes that are 12" and larger. As the cake bakes, the flower nail gets hot therefore cooking the center of the cake at the same time as the outer edge. You do not get a dome because it all cooks at the same time. The pans in the picture do look to be about 8", so in my opinion, the nail was not necessary. HTH!
Hello out there! I was wondering if anyone knows if I can buy a set of edible playing cards. If so, where? I do not have an edible image printer and I know that if I did I could print them and put them either on fondant or gumpaste. The cake I'm doing has them standing up around the center divider so they have to be stiff. Hopefully there is someone out there that can help me, thanks!
Hello Kitty head is pre made RKT. After forming it I covered it with candy melts and as the melts hardened, I smoothed it with a spatula as best as I could. After refrigerating it for an hour I smoothed it with my hands. The warmth of my hands smoothed it out very well. Then 1 last dunk in white candy melts for the final coat. The holds it together and the cereal inside is not rock hard.http://cakecentral.com//gallery/1919280
