Trompe L'oeil Biscotti Jar--Colette Peters Class
I took Colette Peters' Advanced Fondant class at Wilton in April. We had a choice to make an all white cake, a crooked cake, or a trompe l'oeil cake ("fool the eye" in French--had to look like something real). I designed this biscotti barrel. It's a carved styrofoam dummy--lordy, that's messy work--covered in handpainted fondant (my design) and topped with handmade, airbrushed, fondant covered, styrofoam biscotti. Gumpaste butterfly, napkin, plate, & bug. Yes, it could (pretty easily) be made real.
