Shopping Theme
Shopping Theme By tido
For a shopaholic who loves designer labels. Shopping bag is chocolate mudcake. Gucci handbag and wallet are RKT covered with icing sheet. Bank cards are gumpaste with icing sheet and rice paper receopt. I was off with my stripe measurements and had to live with it…sigh…long story. Anyway…I still loved how it turned out and so did the lady who placed the order. TFL.

Beautiful cakes! Can someone please explain to me the easiest most effective way to make the fondant tissue in the shopping bag cakes? Thank you.

I usually roll out extremely thin strips of 50/50 using my KA pasta roller. I store the sheets in a zip log bag [2 gallon] on clear flexible cutting mats. I cut them into squares--about 4x4--and then pinch/shape them and fill the top of the bag.

luckylibra Says... 2013-10-28 12:22:03

I am so excited!!! I have never been on a "top" list of anything ... :) So pleased my cake made the cut.

Rosie2 Says... 2013-10-28 14:52:35

I know what you mean Luckylibra!! :)

Rosie2 Says... 2013-10-28 14:58:21

Hi Kadesan, I do mine pretty much like Maybenot except I don't pass them through the pasta roller. By hand I just roll gumpaste very thin and then cut squares to reseamble tissue paper. Then I pinch them to give the look of crunched tissue. Let it dry for a day or so and arrange them on your cake as desired. I usually make extras since I always break some in the process. Good luck!!

Kadesan Says... 2013-10-29 07:33:24

Thanks a lot ladies (and gents?)!
