I would like to do a fondant plaque on a baby shower cake. I have an order for a 2 tiered cake and they want to have a scripture on the cake. I wanted to put it on a pretty fondant plaque. I have seen so many cake here on CC with them and I wasn't sure how and when to write on them or what is the best thing to use. Could anyone give me some tips on how to do these? I do appreciate the help I have always received.
You can make it out of gumpaste or 50-50 gumpaste fondant. Roll it out pretty thin, cut out a shape either freeform or with a cutter, let it dry then use edible markers to write on it.
I make mine mostly freeform....use a ball roller to thin the edges...put a little gum glue on the edges and add some edible glitter. I can add a rice paper image [printed from my computer....I use my regular ink as the plaque is not designed to be eaten] roll or shape the edges if desired, let dry. One of my favorites is to roll the edges like a scroll....just curling the edges a bit.
Thank you for you help. That makes sense to me. I am going to give it a try.
