I want to do the bra cake here on CC for a friend's 30th birthday and I have no idea where to begin? Can anyone tell me how you make the bra look so perfect? Someone said you use gumpaste, I've never used gumpaste before, is it hard to work with? Any advice or help would be MUCH appreciated! Thanks!!
Go watch this!
i would use the ball pan to create the shape and also gumpaste is reletively easy to work with because you can make it very very thin perfect for lacy ribbiony looks i think.
ok here's the pic of the one i did i just used to regular metal bowls which i will post the pic also veryy cheap at the dollar store and then just cover with fondant i airbrushed the color to make it look more real and the just did the shape with the bra you can cover it if you dont want the nipples to show actually i can't post it lol it shows boobies well anyways ill post the bowls so you have an idea
I did one with the ball pan and all BC, no fondant or gumpaste. I don't have it in my photos because the nips are showing and I think that would make it "naughty"?? If you want to see it or want more info you can PM me w/your email.
i just got through watching edna's youtube video... it is great... i just did three bras and panties since sunday night... i took a demo on this at ices convention... i made panty patterns to go along with the bra pattern from convention... they are fun to make ...
Thanks for all the tips everyone! One other question; so I made the gumpaste and formed it over my mini ball pan....now how long will it take to dry completely and then once it's dry how will I pry it off the pan without breaking it?
I just made one the other week (its in my pics) and i used a rectangle 9" pan i then carved the 'breasts' from that. I placed on a 9" square board,
then simply made an incision through the middle which gave me my two 'boob' sections then carved them into half circles i thrn covered the breasts and the whole board in skin toned fondant (the board then looked like it was the body) attached a squished ball as the nipple then covered half the breast in black fondant for the bra then piped on detail in RI and attached some robbon for the straps and voila!! feel free to have a look at it if you want if you have any questions let me know
ok this is why i love this site- want to do something look it up and someone has generously explained how they did it . You guys are awesome!!!
Just wondering if you have the pattern for the bra cups?
