I have also been trying to figure this method out I think perhaps u print an image trace it to parchment the cut out the shapes place on the fondant trace it then hand cut............. any thoughts???
I really would like to know as I have seen so many designs that look perfect like the actual image........
That's what I've done each time I've done it. I just use my printed image cut it out like a puzzle, cut out the pieces then put them back together. Once it was all done, I went back and added detail.
its a 2D image. Personally, I think its easier than a 3D ( but thats just IMHO) you roll the fondant into the shape you want, or roll it and trace the image and cut with something similar to an exacto knife and put the pieces next to each other to form what you want. You can also overlap and flatten a little.
I use the same method as Jess....works great for me!
That is the cutest number cake I have seen. Most of them are boring, but that one it adorable!!!
As the others suggested...print the image then cut into pieces like a puzzle then roll out your fondant and cut (I use and exacto knife). The cinderella and Gators cake were done with this technique.
Ladies all ur work looks wonderful!!!
Soooo what is the best way to trace the image onto fondant or do u just place it on top and cut?
and... an exacto knife is the best method of cutting for this...
Thanks so much for all ur help!
I usually place it on top and cut it out. As for cutting, exacto is best for details, pizza cutter for larger things.
Thanks for starting this thread! I've been wanting to know about this also.
Great info, I can't wait to try this!!! Thanks to OP and all responses.
