Thank you ballet girl
Nordic Ware train cake - How to use fondant icing?
Cake Central Top Picks
yes i just glazed mine and i stopped there because i liked it--
you could color the glaze
you could color the cake batter in the first place too
but if i wanted to spiff it up more i would prolly spray glazed cakes w/bright pretty colors
and use edible ink markers for some accents
i think the only way fondant would not blot out most of the lovely detail is if you rolled it paper thin and placed it on hot cakes and i've never done that so it might melt right off or bond beautifully
but i've done everything wrong at least once and i haven't done that wrong yet so be forewarned ;)
wonder what a rolled buttercream would do on a warm cake--prolly melt
hey--here's an idea--spray and/or paint naked cakes with color then glaze!
i just love this pan though and the castle too
i got my pan sitting right here by the keyboard...so tempting
but i'm out of vanilla...a temporary set back...
i esp wanna try the paint first glaze later method

That's why I don't like character pans because the only thing you can do with them is to use icing and the star tip. I have the stadium Nordic pan and had the same problem. How to decorate it without obliterating the design. Ended up brushing on a clear sugarwater glaze then tossing a lot of colored round jimmies on the sticky cake to resemble audience members in the stand seats.
Today I will mold more then try my hand at painting. Did I mention high school art is the one subject I failed?!?
