Oh Pineapples...

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Good evening, how's everyone? I'm working on a pineapple topper for my mother's birthday cake. I didn't have time to order a mold and I couldn't find a tutorial, so I came up with my own technique. Also, this is my first time working with modeling chocolate. Let me know what you all think. I could really use the pointers. I'm going to redo the top leaves, they were just for the picture so I could get an idea of what it would look like. I'm going to make it a bit more full. TIA!

That looks fantastic!  Much better than it would have looked with a mold too

Okay, so I finished my topper! Here's the official topper that will be going on the cake. I dusted the leaves for a more realistic look. I also used confectioner's glaze to set the color and give the leaves a waxy look. TFL
