I'd like to put this train on a cake. It's for a retirement for a man with a model train hobby/addiction. So I don't want it to look "Thomas-y" -- more sophisticated than cartoonish.
I've never tried FBCT -- is this the technique of choice for something like this? Or should I cut out the individual pieces from fondant or fondant/gumpaste and "build" the train on the cake piece by piece?
Or -- god forbid -- should I try to pipe it directly onto the cake??
Any help appreciated!![url]htt'://http://www.zazzle.com/train_caboose_car_hats-148810984965632276[/url]
I hope this link works -- I haven't tried putting a link into a posting before.
I'll try to post this link again...
Okay, one more time...this should work...
I would try the FBCT. You would have more control than with piping directly on the cake. If you feel like you want to do the train in fondant, more power to you! You have more patience than me Best of luck!
If i was doing it I would do an edible image. That to me would be the easiest.
You could do a FBCT. It is pretty easy. You could do it ahead of time and maybe if you have never done one, try one as a trial run. You could also do either the pin prick method or the transfeer method. Those 3 options would probably be the easiest way to do this.
how about an edible image?
