Hello all,

 

Anyone here who can help me how I can make this cake "painting dripping on the cake look"  Anyone who have done these type of cake and don't mind explaining please.  Thankss

If I was to make this cake I would use a dowel rod in the center of the cake to hold the tube of paint up.  Just add a little more fondant on the left side of the dowel rod on the bottom and more on the top part of the dowel rod on the right to give it a curved look.  Add some Tylose powder to your fondant when you make the tube of paint so that the tube will hold it's shape better. You could also use a wire instead of a dowel rod but be sure to place a bubble straw or drinking straw in the cake first to make sure that none of the wire touches the cake. You can do the whole thing on the wire and let it dry than place in your cake when it has  dried and set.

Here is a website where they make the same type of cake.  They used a rod in the middle of the cake,You can look at the pictures and see where the dowel rod was inserted into the middle of the cake and then the fondant was add to cover it.

Quite a late reply but just found this post and thought I'd share this tutorial I found -

The 'jug' has got a plastic jug hidden in it which is obviously why it holds up so well. I would like to know if its possible to do one without the top item being not all edible?

 

Hope this helps! :)

with the top item being all edible? if it was small--it's just a matter of balance--a weight thing--sure it's possible

I did a beer mug cake with a can of beer balanced on a dowel that was stuck into the cake. As long as the dowel goes into the cake far enough it will be fine.

Use modeling chocolate, not fondant.

Yeah, and I used isomalt for the beer since that would be clear when it cooled off.
