I did a fish on a cake "cutting board". The fish was seperate and on its own cake board cut to fit. I put a few dowels under it and placed on top of the cake. Its in my photos if you would like to see.
Hi,. I am making a piano keyboard cake. Its going to be covered in black fondant. I am just trying to figure out if I should do two layers and cut out where the piano keys should go or just cover in fondant and put the keys on top. I saw some great keyboard cakes on here and would really appriciate any help you could give me.
Hi. I always use homemade mmf because it is so cheap to make. It takes awhile to get the hang of it so dont give up. I found that using a tbs. of glycerin( you can get at michaels) to the fondant when mixing helps alot with pliabilty and wont crack. To get the fondant to stick to cake I put the crumb coat of icing on first. The fondant will stick to this. I roll the fondant on a large pastry mat then fold onto cake. Hope this helps.
I am making a wasc for a friend. She requested chocolate buttercream filling and I am covering in fondant. How does that combo sound? I am not a big chocolate person so i am not sure about it. Has anyone made this combo.?
