monster high cake help pleaseee

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone, my names Stacy and Im new to this cake decorating stuff, I have been asked to make a cake for a friends daughter who will be 9, Cake decorating is my hobby and I am a complete amature/novice compared to the many amazing cakes on this site, I aspire to be as good but as we all know practice makes perfect so im practising my butt off and hoping it pays off.

 

Sooo after a long winded introduction I am looking for a bit of guidence on makin this cake. Any ideas would be helpful and greatly appreciated as I have far too many floating around in my head which is quite hard to narrow down.

 

I will say my original idea is using a monster high doll and the cake tiers as its dress with fondant or modeling choc not sure which to use , but then I saw an amazing cake here with the doll sitting on the cake and now im questioning myself...

Thanks for taking the time to read this hopefully its understandable or else I will be quite embarassed lol

There's a photo of one in my gallery. If you like it, I'll gladly give you a walk through. If you don't, I promise not to be offended.

It's a fairly simple cake.

The other design I sketched for her included diamonds on the side with little cherry blossoms in between each diamond.

It's never "just cake!"

First, make the topper. It drives me nuts when people put the skewer or stick on the back. I like to put it in the middle so you don't see it. I rolled a 70/30 mix of satin ice gumpaste & fondarific black. You can use your favorite. If using other than fondarific, it can be 50/50.

I roll it about 1/4" thick twice as long as I need. Place the template on top to make sure it fits. Out the skewer on top of the rolled gumpaste about 1/4" down from where top will be. Press a bit so 1/2 of skewer is embedded. Fold over top & press. Cut the template, turn over to smooth the sides, set aside.

Using white fondant & gumpaste, cut the skull & place on the black background. Do the se with the eyes.

I like to color my fondant a few days in advance so it has time to set. I prefer to mix colored fondant. For the pink, I used red & white fondarific. I added a touch of Americolor electric pink. For the blue, blue and white fondarific.

The thinly now for the topper was made with fondant about 4 days in advance and let to dry. Use gumpaste if you need it fast.

Baby is awake so ill write the rest later.

Tried to edit but apparently I don't have permission.

"The thinly now" should be the tiny bow.

I made the large bow with a fondant/gumpaste mix.

You'll need a tape measure to get the exact circumference of your cake. I made my stripes about 2" apart. Adjust so that you get even stripes around the side.

I made a template with some card stock. I used publisher to make a sheet of diamonds the size I wanted on the cake the. Cut the angle I wanted. Using the wheel tool, I traced the angel all the way around the cake.

I again used the tape measure to see how long each stripe needed to be. I rolled out the black fondant to 1/8" thickness and cut 1". I placed these under some wrap while I cut the blue so it didn't get too dry. I cut the blue strips 1/2". Then, I put the blue on top of the black.

Now this part sounds simple but it takes a bit of finesse. Place the stripes along the angled lines. Use sharp scissors to cut the angle at the too of the cake. You want a very nice sharp cut. You can use your finger to smooth it a bit. I use the wheel tool to cut the bottom. Work all goin the same direction at first.

The next part takes lots of manipulation. You'll need to cut different sizes. I promise it won't matter. It'll look just like mine. Start at the top. Those matter most.

The bottom band is 3/4".

Hope all that helps. Don't hesitate to ask questions.

Hi there,

I did a Monster High cake with the Dracula character sitting on a coffin shaped cake! There's a pic in my gallery. Quite easy to make a rectangle cake the cut it into a coffin shape. Cover it in black fondant, then cut a pink fondant shape for the top. Pipe on some dots/studs, or just roll little balls of fondant and stick them on. I piped details round the sides, youcould also roll little fondant 'sausages' and roll them into scroll shapes and stick them on. Pipe a few spiderwebs, paint a bit of edible siver paint on them, voila! I hand modelled the figure but you could easily just sit a doll on top. Hope this gives you a few ideas! Have fun and good luck :)
