PVC structure for cakes

    I am still a new cake artist, and am far from perfect. I had an order for a children’s birthday party, in which the customer wanted a 3D character from a popular children’s show, Yo Gabba Gabba. I searched all over Cakesdecor and CC, as well as on the web, and was not able tyo find very many tutorials, let alone info on how to build PVC armature. I found a premade armature set on Caljava, but for $90.. well, that’s a tad expensive. I studied the structure, and went to my local hardware store and purchased all of the items I needed. For this particular cake, here are... read more

The link to this tutorial is also on my Facebook page, Fifi's Cakes :       These measured under 2" in length. Made with modelling paste which I make using a mixture of Flower Paste (home made - see my notes for the recipe) and normal shop bought fondant. As with all modelling, water is lightly brushed on as adhesive and kitchen roll is used to support shapes as they dry.   I don't know who the original author is of the shapes as I found it on the net... read more

Nemo cake topper

This is a Nemo cake topper I made for a Nemo's cake. Instead of doing it with rice krispies, I baked a 7" x 3" round cake (you could do a square if you want), and I just carved the cake to give Nemo's shape. Sorry, I forgot to take pics of all the process, but I will explain it as much as I can    How I did it...steps:   1st- I cut the cake in a tear drop shape. I used some of the cuttings to make Nemo's round shape head on top. (this is where the round cake worked for me, because I used the round edge to place it on top of the head). Then I crumb coated the... read more
