Can anyone tell me how they went about accomplishing the figures on this cake?


It looks like frosting on gumpaste maybe? Does anyone know the technique? I would like to make a similar cake for my niece's 5th birthday in a few months and I would be most appreciative if so! =D

this looks like "rosebuds" work. not sure how they do it, i know they always describe it as "buttercream" though? perhaps buttercream layered on fondant/gumpaste cut-outs to give it strength?

ha! just saw where you said pretty much the same thing : ) definitely have to have a talent for this type of work!

I believe the technique is a frozen buttercream transfer

I'm thinking it's made out of royal icing b/c she's standing up...maybe using the FBCT method but with royal icing. and it looks like a lot of layers of the royal too....that's really a masterpiece! icon_smile.gif

Wow! Wow! Wow! icon_surprised.gif OMG! I checked out Rosebud's site and Flicker and all I have to say is "W-O-W!" I feel sooooo inadequate now! I could practice 22 hours a day for 20+ years and never see this level of artistry! icon_cry.gif

They are my favourite cake artists also, and they do a lot of work with chocolate.
