Does anyone have instructions on the best way to make a boat out of gumpaste?
Do I mold it from one glob of gp or make it in pieces and put it together?
It needs to be big enough to hold the Wilton "Catch of a Lifetime" bride groom topper. That's the one with the bride holding a fishing pole that has caught on the grooms pants.
I made one in parts and put it together, but it was just a rowboat. If you did it in one "glob" wouldn't it be heavy?
Anybody else have any ideas??? or specific instruction?
It is to be a ski boat
I am making a cake with the same bride and groom. I am making a boat by rolling the gumpaste flat then cutting 3 pieces (bottom and 2 sides), shaping the sides and let them all harden. I will "glue" them together with royal icing. You could make a bow for the front and glue it on top. I hope you understand what I am trying to say. Do you mind sharing how are you designing the rest of the cake? I have no idea what to do!
I'm thinking of doing either 2 11x15 or 1 11x15 and 1 9x13 and making it not exactly square. Then I'm going to make trees and add cake scraps around the sides to make the bank and then put blue piping gel in the middle for the water. I'm going to put a sign on the bank that says "Catch of a lifetime.
Here's one that has the shape I'm wanting. http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1215862
The cake will be similar in design to this one I did a while back.
So I guess a combo of these two.
Cute! Can't wait to see pic!
