I have a castle cake to do and i was going to use a brick impression mat. Any tips for me? the cake is 8" square and 8" high. Should I cover it all in fondant then use the impression mat on it? Or do it before and put it on one wall at a time? TIA. I am really new at this.
I just did a castle cake (in my pics). I made a solid flat wall out of choc. I then went back with white and pink choc and squezzed on top to look like stone. You could also do this with RI. Hope this helps, any questions just ask.
OMG! I LOVE your castle. They really wanted fondant though
I use the impression mats before I construct.
pmaucher -- your castle is awesome.
I would cover in fondant and use the impression mat if using 1 piece of fondant. If you are going to do the panelling method then I would do the impressions and construct.
