Hello all,
I need to do a musical themed cake for a 40yr old man that loves jazz esp. the sax. I'm wondering how to make a small sax on top of the cake using fondant/gumpaste and then paint with gold.Thanks in advance.

well i would of thought just taking a picture and modelling it to the best you can to look like a sax would be the best bet icon_smile.gif

I think that's probably as good idea as any. I would hollow out the back (if you aren't really going to see the back) and inside as best as possible to make it lighter as well.

Depending on how small you are making it - maybe look for a chocolate/candy mold of a sax. I love using them for things like this when my sculpting isn't up to creating an intricate piece. A nearby candy supply place has the most amazing assortment of molds with very intricate details..so you never know..

Instead of using fondant, think about using pastillage....makes for a more sturdy result. My Wilton instructor made a violin (very realistic) and used pastillage.

Do a search on Cake Central and several recipes will show; an easy one is http://cakecentral.com/recipes/14633/easy-pastillage

Use the pictures supplied to you...make a simple template for parts - roll pastillage....place templates down...use sharp knife, etc. to go around edges. Allow parts to dry and then fuse parts together using edible glue (recipe for edible glue also on CC). I'm not for sure you allowed yourself ample time to do this project....if not, why not just make a plaque type of sax and lay it on top of the cake...or prop it up somehow as topper (ie, it would not be dimensional...just a side view of a sax). At least this is how I would attempt to do this. Good luck!!
