looks to me like that is a double layer of fondant then cut from the center and the fondant drawn bak to resemble the ripping. You might want to PM the artist and ask for further instructions though.
thanks for the only reply much appreciated!!
I agree, it has to be thick enough to hold its shape, I think if you make it too thin it is going to smush. Good luck, hope someone can help you a lil better
I made a cake kind of like this one and instead of pealling the fondant back, I made seperate pieces the same color of the fondant and just glued them around the elmo and rolled them over. I hope this makes sense.
it looks like maybe the covered witht eh yellow then cut it back and the green was added later? Thats the only way i can figure they did it without getting buttercream on the fondant
Someone recently posted a tutorial on that very thing, but I can't find it right now. She showed the two-tone and everything. I'll keep searching - but it's on here somewhere!
I cut triangles and stuck them in around elmo, but if I did it again I think I would cut a hole to stick him into and have it peeling back more...look at mine and see what i mean..........
I only just stumbled across your question, would have been happy to help if you had asked me.
The design comes from the Planet Cake book. What i did was cut out 2 circles of the green colour and placed them in the middle of the cake on top of each other. Brush the top circle with syrup. I then covered the cake in yellow fondant. You can see the outline of the circle underneath, i then cut lines through the circle like a pizza, don't cut to deep you only want to cut through the yellow fondant and one layer of green. Then i peeled them back to create the explosion.
Hope that makes sense.
Cags31 - your cake is gorgeous and I'm inspired to try to recreate it for my youngest's birthday (with due credit, of course)!!
thanks tsal - feel free to ask any questions if you need any help. I'm sure yours will look great too.
Great!! His birthday isn't until the fall, so I've got some time (I also ordered the Planet Cake book that you got the instructions from).
Nah on second thought I think my Elmo looks great, would not change a thing
