I need a tip on a spa cake. How do you make the features (nose and mouth mainly) look real? One thought I had was making a mold of my face using alum foil and then baking the cake in that...would that work? What about just making the nose and lips that way and attaching them on? Do you ice the whole face and then add the mask? Any thoughts on how to do this cake would be great. Thanks!
I have tried baking with tin foil before and didn't have any luck. I would think to carve it or add pieces to it to get the look you want. Just my little opinion.
I found a plastic mold at Hobby Lobby of a face. Melted white chocolate candy melts with a couple of lt. cocoa ones for "flesh color" Poured into the mold . Poured out excess so I would just have a shell.
Worked great--cake is in my photos.
I took a look around, msauer made a face cake, it says the lips are chocolate mold. Nose looks like it was just worked on after the fondant was put onto the cake.
