how to make and attach'shark teeth'??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Any ideas for me? I'm attempting to carve a cake and put teeth into the open mouth. I've looked at examples on this site and others - still not sure what's the best way to do the teeth.

Fondant? Royal? How would I attach them? All ideas are welcome!

Thanks in advance -

Well, I would use fondant, likely hardened up with some Gum-tex added about 2 or 3 tsp. Gum-tex to about 10 ounces of fondant. I would insert toothpicks into the centre of each one and just shape the fondant around them. This way you can insert the teeth into the shark's mouth wherever you like. Just be sure to tell whomever the cake is for, about the toothpicks.
I would likely allow the teeth to dry and set for a day or two if possible before using them.

I would use fondant or white candy melts. You could cut/mold/pipe little diamond shapes instead of just triangles so you'll be able to stick them into the cake.
