Hi everybody,
I am still here trying to incorporate angel wings and bubbles in a design for a 14 years old birthday girl...
She does not want any angel, fairy, etc ( in other words, no characters or figurines), just the wings!
I tried the forum before, but I still do not know what to do and the cake is October 3rd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please, help! usaribbon.gif

. . . you might consider gelatin . . . here are a couple of applications using gelatin . . . http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=353193 (if you like this style - here are detailed instructions from torki on how to do them http://forum.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=download&id=20111) . . . http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1265096 . . . as for bubbles . . . have you considered blown sugar . . . http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopic-41980-0.html

I can envision a really cute woodlands scene where a fairy sitting on a toadstool is blowing bubbles . . . BUT that may be soooo far off the mark that it would be a disaster . . . icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif . . . .

HOWEVER . . . it sounds like your birthday girl knows what she wants . . . why don't you ask her to sketch what she is expecting . . . and design your cake based on that . . . for all I know it could be a "tattoo" type image she has in her mind . . . and we are waaayyyy off base with our angle/fairy images . . . there are also lots of ideas here (but you would still need to know what your Bday girl is after) . . . http://images.google.ca/images?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-USicon_surprised.giffficial&hs=l7E&q=fairy+wing+image&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&resnum=1&ct=title

Thank you so much for all your ideas!!!!!!!
I asked , but she did not emailed me back.....Her mom told me she like fairies, but the girl thinks she is too old for it, so she just wants wings!
I have never done blown sugar......

this is a cute bubbles idea and then maybe pipe wings above the happy birthday?


i think these types of dots look bubbly and you can make a pair of wings from fondant/gumpaste for a topper maybe:

you can make wings like this a bit bigger from RI for a topper:

Good luck!

I found this link too for buying bulk Isomalt...might be a good one!!



Ok, I just called the company and not only where they very nice but they were very helpful as well!!

They sell 55 pound bags of Isomalt and the delivered price is $233.75(that's about $5.00 a pound). To anywhere in the USA. They also sell over seas and to Canada. You have to call for pricing, but I think if you are doing alot of sugar art, it is going to be well worth the price!! Here's their number if you want to call: 1-800-601-0688

Just a side note for fun:

The lady there just told me that they have just been commissioned to deliever a Truck load of Isomalt to one of the US army bases for a contest. Get this: They are having a bake-off!! Apparently they are competing each other to make a football sized cake. The Isomalt is for the icing, because of it's slow-to-melt qualities in heat.

OMG...I think that's hillarious!! Just thought I'd share that!! I hope they post pictures somewhere when they do it too!!!
