Does anybody know howclever-squirrel made her Cinderella carriage? I have PM'd her a couple times, but she must be busy.

She did an awesome job and I would really like to know how she did it.

Wow. Hers is really cool. I know there's a ton of carriages so I thought I'd find something similar so you could PM someone else for instructions. Hers really is one of a kind though!

Thanks for thinking of that for me. I just haven't seen any others like hers. I have PM'd her twice, but she must be busy.

I was hoping someone else would know how to do it. I would really like to add it to one of my castle cakes.

Her horses are amazing also. She put they are out of fondant, but I don't know how she got them to stand up.

Any help?

Did you try PMing the other two people who asked her to see if maybe she responded to one of them? Prob not if she's been too busy to respond to you. icon_redface.gif Maybe one of those is you? For the horses...maybe something between them connecting them, like a harness? You could disguise it with a vine and flowers. Maybe make their legs really long, attach something as a dowel, cut a hole in the cake and stick it way down? For the carriage...I can't see how you'd get something out from under that's too round. If you molded it on something that round, however would you get it off??? Could you try like a papier mache type thing by using a balloon and wrap it was paper then crisco it. Then lay your fondant/gumpaste over it and score your lines and let it dry. Then pop the balloon?

I'm sorry, by no means am I an expert, but no one else is answering, so these would be the things I would try if I had to do it totally on my own.

Also, Doug is the best around for structural type questions. Maybe PM him and see if he's around and can offer more expert assistance.

I was thinking of the balloon thing too. I'll look and maybe try to PM some of the others.

She did a fantastic job and I really would like to learn to do it.

Thanks for the reply.

I did mean saran wrap icon_redface.gif I really hope someone with more experience gets on here and answers! I'd like to see how to do it too, for when I'm brave enough to give it a shot! The closest thing I saw to this in the gallery was a sugar egg. What a pain and wouldn't get you the look you want.

Well, it is currently 6:45 am where she's from (Israel) so she may answer those questions while we're all catching our Z's.

awesome cake. I would form it with gumpaste on a ball pan, half at a time. while it's on the pan and still soft i would cut windows and door out. attach the halves together with royal icing when dry. maybe? would it work? icon_confused.gif

It's worth a try. I will see if I get time this weekend and let you guys know. It would be nice if cleve-squirell would see this and let us know. She must be busy. I understand that other people have a life that doesn't rotate around CC. But not me icon_surprised.gif
