I am making my first onesie cake this weekend. Does anyone know what people use for the snaps on the bottom of the onesie. I have seen some really realistic ones on here and have no idea what people use. Any suggestions would be very helpful!!
You can use real snaps just let the customer know so they can take them off.
roll out a piece of fondant thinly, cover it will a piece of plastic wrap then cut out small circles using a tip, the plastic wrap will round off the edges, you can cut out the middle if you like. i wouldn;t use real ones, too risky.
I normally just pipe a buttercream circle using a round tip. If you want it silver, you could do as the PP suggested and paint them using silver luster dust.
for mine I made circles out of royal icing, let them crust then flattened them with my fingertip, let dry then placed on cake.
i agree with sweetcakes on making it out of fondant. i definately would not use real buttons. i personally don't like anything on a cake that isn't edible.
Thanks everyone!! I think I'll go with the idea of doing them in fondant and then painting them silver! I'd be afraid someone would swallow one of the real ones. Thanks so much!!
