Help... I need to make a baptism cake on Friday and they want a baptism gown on the cake. Does anyone have a template for a gown or could give me some advice on how to make one? I am just wanting to make one out of fondant to lay on the cake, but I would like for it to look like there is one laying on the cake, not just a flat piece of fondant . (Does that make sense?!) Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
do you have a dress shaped cookie cutter? I would start with that - cut out of fondant, and then maybe add another piece of gathered fondant to create a "skirt" and give it some dimension... you could then pipe all the lacy details on top of the fondant.
If the cookie cutter isn't big enough, you could enlarge a tracing on a copier.
If you don't have a cutter, you could look for images online. (always my last resort!)
Yes, something like what you did for the bridal shower cake. (very pretty cake, BTW) Thanks for the idea about the cutter, unfortunately I don't have one but I will keep that in mind for future cakes and I am needing something. Thank you.
Shel, i did not have a pattern for my i just had to draw up something by hand the when i got it the way i wanted i traced it onto poster board and cut it out so that i had something nice for cutting around on the fondant.
I would suggest just borrowing a nice dress dress to get an idea from.
Remember you will need to make it a little bigger for some ruffling at least on the skirt part. and the sleeves. I hope that makes sense i am getting a little tired. Ps. thank you by the way.
Momvarden- thanks so much for the tip. I am going to attempt drawing one in a little while. I will be thrilled if it turns out as nice as yours. Once again- Thanks.
Momvarden -- that's beautiful!
Shel - I hope your cake turns out beautifully!
I did one a few years back. It didn't come out exactly as I had wanted, but it might give you some ideas? I should've used a wider fondant piece for the skirt as it came out too flat.
I just saw one today on here. It's gorgeous! Here's the link!!
