Debbie,

Great cake! I love it. Did you mold all those crabs by hand or did you use cutters?

Very well done,
Suzanne M.

Elaine,

The film reel was rolled fondant. I rolled it out to 1/4" thickness and cut out a 5" circle using the lid of a tin I own. I then cut the outside holes with the large end of a #6B tip and the inside holes using the large end of a small tip. I let them dry on powdered sugar over night and then painted them with a lustre dust / clear vanilla combination. I only painted one side. I let them dry overnight again. The film in the middle was a chocolate plaque made in the bottom of a clean cashew tin and the film strip was dyed rolled fondant. I cut out a strip the same width as the chocolate and then punched tiny holes along each side with the small end of tip #3. I used the leftover dyed brown fondant to make a little brick 1x1x2" to hold up the reel. I attached the film reel to the chocolate and to the stand using melted chocolate.

As it turns out, a guest at the party liked the fondant popcorn so much that he ate the little brown stand that the reel was sitting on when he found out it was made of the same material...he got 3/4 of the way through and then felt a little ill. Imagine eating that much fondant....YUCK! I can't stand the stuff. I make my own and it tastes better than Wilton's but not by too much. I find it sickeningly sweet.

Hope this helps,
Suzanne M.

Thanks once again. So the pots must be safe. Sorry for all the questions, but when you stacked the popcorn, did you have problems with it being too heavy on top? Did you assemble the popcorn fondant at the last minute? I am worried about it crashing the top layer . teddybearmom

There really isn't that much popcorn on there. I left the dome alone when the cake was done...didn't press it down...didn't level it off. Then I put a thin layer of buttercream on it and pressed the popcorn into it...it looks like it is a pile because of the cake's natural dome.
