I have an order for a pancake cake. I plan on making a 2 layer 9 inch round; then doing ropes of fondant stacked up the side of the cake for the different pancakes and then one fondant pancake on the top BUT how to I achieve the proper pancake coloring?
Any advice will be great. Thanks.
I am assuming you do not have an airbrush. I have read that you can use your coloring with Vodka or Gin. I use lemon juice with mine to color and it works well.
Nope, no airbrush at this point so I need some old school advice. Thanks.
Use vodka to thin the gel colors. I think if I were making the cake, I would color my fondant light brown and then paint a darker circle on top to be the pancake color. If you go over it a few times, it should pull some of the color up and make it look more like a pancake. You could add a little cocoa powder mixed with water for darker spots. Don't forget a big pat of fondant "butter" on the top Sounds like a fun cake to make.
