Scrolled Letters and Bow ~ Man's BD Cake
Birthday cake for a guy whose nickname is "K2." I found a cool scroll font, printed out my message, put it under my clear vinyl mat, and used it as a guide for creating my letters (I added more scrolls than the font provided). The letters were made out of chocolate fondant with Tylose added, which I extruded out of my clay gun with the appropriately-sized rope disc. Easy! Once dry, I airbrushed the letters with a combination of AmeriColors' pearl sheen and gold sheen, and then airbrushed my bow loops the same way. In retrospect, I wish I had airbrushed the entire cake with vodka to bring out the luster of the chocolate fondant, but the guy loved his cake and didn't know the difference. He was really fascinated with the silvery sheen on the bow and message. LOL :D TFL!
