I would make the hands from rkt, Its a lot easier to work with than you thingk. Made the recipe and while it is somewhat warm (cool enough to touch) shape it into the hands. Coat with bc or ganache and cover with 50/50 fondant and gumpaste.
There are cans of spray food coloring you can buy to create the bottom and middle tiers.
I would use dowels to support the cakes from top to bottom.
Thanks auntginn. I looked for premade wedges and couldn't find much online. I usually get my dummy cakes from *dallasf** and didn't see it there either. I have several square dummy cakes at home and will try cutting it. Any suggestions on self cutting would be appreciated.
I will play around with RKT. It just sound intimidating.. Just as much as creating gp figurines
I do have Wilton luster sprays in gold and silver. I will look for those specific colors at Michaels or will make do with whatever is available. The bottom tier will be a dummy and the top two would be cake.
I know this cake is done in Fondant. You think this could be pulled off with BC too with fondant accents? But then preparing this bright shade of red in BC will give me nightmares. I have MMF in red that I made using candy melts..decisions decisions! So much easier when I am told to do this this and this...lol
Last question, if using a central dowel through the whole thing, should I prepare the foam wedges in any special way to prevent particles of foam to get into the cake? Of course, each cake and the foam wedge would be on a cake circle the same size...
Thanks in advance..
