I'm making this nintendo game cassette for a friend's birthday and the word is that he would like it be as accurate as possible. I will be carving a chocolate cake and I can't figure out how to get the illusion of this end of the cake.
I made a gumpaste strip for the middle but what should I do to create the indented look.... I've thought of cardboard strips under the fondant to shape the fondant around or even carving the actual cake no more than 1/2 inch deep but I'm worried that even that would cave in. Any advice would be greatly appreciated....
I just used gumpaste for the first time this week, would that or fondant dry hard enough to shape like that?
just a thought,
I would probably use gumpaste at the end also. Make your cake and then put the gumpaste strip in the middle and then the gumpaste strips on the edge of the cake so you get the indented look.
Thank you for the advice I think I'll do gumpaste strips for the edges and then maybe try to wrap my fondant around them when I'm covering the cake so it looks like all one piece.
