I am doing a Tinkerbell Woodlands cake for my daughters 15th birthday party this weekend. Two tiers with Tink sitting on a "tree stump" cake on top. My daughter wants some whimsical looking mushrooms on the cake, and I have never done any mushrooms other than meringue. She wants white bases with red tops w/ white dots. Any suggestions on shaping the tops? Domed, Oblong? I have no idea on this one. The cake she saw them on is at ...
Will these be self-supporting or do I need to run a skewer or something thru them? They look top-heavy to me.
What size mushroom? In my pics I did one with a large RKT top covered in fondant with dots and chocolate cake for the base covered in fondant. For the smaller natural colored ones, they are baked SMBC.
I know they look top heavy but I don't think they are....
When you have your gumpaste ball of red, roll it in a ball and stick your finger in the center roll into mushroom shape. from there you can make the stem from a peice of white gumpaste and glue it into the center of the mushroom
