Do you do the imprint before you put the fondant on the cake or after you put the fondant on the cake. If it's after how you smooth your fondant?
It can actually be done both ways. You will just have to be careful lifting it and putting it on your cake because it might strech and distort the pattern. As for smoothing, I'm not sure how you would be able to do it.
I would do that pattern before putting it one the cake - with that much detail, you have to be sure to use enought pressure to get it all the same. I don't think that would be easy to do if it were already on the cake, IMO. As Rylan says though, be careful when picking it up so you don't distort it.
beautiful cake looks like you got the imprint just perfect great job
It's absolutely beautiful.
An 8" square serves 20 (according to Wilton's Party Chart)
I charge $4 per serving for 2 layer cakes (4" tall), so my total is $80
It looks very beautiful. I would charge (not that I have a business) the $/slice mentioned plus the hourly pay for the work of the shoes you made. How much did you charge?
It turned out GREAT!!
I have been working with fondant for some time, but am trying something new now. I am not sure whether to imprint it before or after. I am doing an imprint of a diamond pattern as if from a pillow. I am doing it on a three tierred kake. Afraid it will stretch and the design isn't going to look the same on all sides.
