I have a couple of questions if someone could help me out, what kind of cake is firm enough to carve into this shape?
& is it easier to stick fondant icing using buttercream or jam?
& lastly, how would I get pink sugar to stick to the fondant icing?
Thanks for any advice
Hi, you need to have a good densed cake for carving. Maybe a yellow cake or a pound cake. I always use buttercream under my fondant. And use a bit of sugar glue to stick the pink sugar on to the fondant.
thanks bashini, much appreciated. Can I make sugar glue or would I have to buy it, do you know?
You can make the sugar glue. Here is a video from aine2, on making sugar glue.
thank-you very much. Ill have a practice run tomorrow evening
