Can anyone tell me where to find a template and guide for making the hanger dress tops to go on mini cakes? Thanks
I don't have a template but I would think they could be made by either piping hangers with royal icing or making them with extruded fondant/gumpaste and allowing them to dry. Then, cutting the dress tops from fondant/gumpaste or piping and flooding them with royal icing and allowing them to dry as well. Then, attach the two parts together. Even chocolate/candy melts could be used.
all4cake, thanks for the info!!
I rolled black gumpaste into a very thin strip, had no extruder then. And just folded it into shape and let it dry. With the dress top I added some Tylose powder to my fondant, rolled it out and put a template on it to cut around. I just drew the template on a piece of paper. Look in my pictures I have a big dress, and mini dresses around it, all on hangers. GL!
this is perfect! thanks..is the bodice sitting on top, or stuck down into the cake? I am going to try this weekend to copy, if you don't mind...
Yes I made it a little longer and stuck it into the cake. Also if you look close I put a little belt around to hide that part and hold itt in better. Look on the added pic too where you can see the back of the dress, you can just put a little ribbon there to make sure it's definitely staying!
Do copy but you must show!!! Have fun!
marzipandoll, those are cute!
I can't wait to try it!! thanks much!!
Well, the hanger could have been a little bigger, but all in all, I think it came out ok..lots of fun, but I could not imagine doing enough more than a couple at a time..very time consuming. I made 3 and it too me the whold day.
They turned out GREAT though! My favorite is the blue one!
Can anyone tell me what you wouold charge for a cake like this? Or any mini fondant covered cake? I tried asking a couple bakeries, but they say they do not make them. I have an order for 35 mini monster cakes, and no idea what to charge! Little larger than a cupcake. Thanks
I've never done them...so, I wouldn't know right off-hand how much I'd charge.
