Are you tired of every cake base having the same old silver/gold covering? I like to decorate mine to match the cake.
For your convenience, here are links to some of the things I use when decorating the cake base:
[…] To begin, I made the board that the pickle is sitting on and cut the eyes and mouth out of fondant. As I mentioned in the fondant video, I like to use the pre-colored Satin Ice fondant for red and black. I’m telling you, it’s a huge time-saver . Next, I stacked three layers of cake (with filling in between) and used the board as a template for the curve of the pickle. Then I went back with my serrated knife and made the top “corners” round. After I covered it in fondant, I used a bit of clear vanilla to attach the pickle’s bumps. I didn’t want a solid green pickle so I sponged on a light coat of Leaf Green (thinned with vodka) first, let it dry and then added lines of Moss Green (thinned with vodka) with a paint brush to give it more dimension. For the finishing touches, I attached the mouth and eyes and then decorated the cake base. […]
