Hey so I'd like to make a parcel cake, but in the centre, I'd like it to look like it has been ripped open, and place chocolate/candy in the middle..
I know it sounds simple, but how would I got about doing this carefully.. I'm using fondant by the way.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I've seen cakes where a character pops out the top, you could do the same look. They take a knife and starting at the center point, make cuts outward that look like slices of pizza (hope you can visualize Then you peel back the slices. This gives a neat look.... if you can't see this, picture this: A pizza with knife starting at the center and cutting towards the outer crust. Do several cuts like this...
Oh thanks so much, I kinda imagined it like that, but I wasnt sure.
i have done a few of these. i have never "rip" it in the middle. I have made gumpaste pieces and stick it on afterwards. I'm to scared that the cake may dry out. so mine is fake, but I getthe effect.
