Hi bakers.... I was asked to make a cake and carve letters into cupcake size ALANA and i have never carved. please all hints and tips would be appreciated. I was thinking to freeze a cake and use the letter stencils for like a poster board. or maybe use muffin pans. what do you think? also what is the best type of cake to carve? i don't care about the flavors.
semi frozen is easiest to carve.=) nad go with a more dense cake.. such as pound or mudcake if you can.. otherwise wasc apparently work well? good luck!
I don't understand what you are trying to do. Are you intending to carve muffins into the letters, or carve the letters into the top of a cake? How are you going to cover that and with what? It's going to be pretty fiddly, whatever you are going to use
i have never tried any thing like this but could you make a thinnish cake then use cookie letter cutters?
you could then dip the letters into poured fondant or royal icing. i have seen a heart cookie cutter used on sponge before so hope this helps
Definitely frozen. I would use cookie cutters. Cut the letters out of sugarpaste and put on top of the cupcakes to keep the crumbs together. Then I would carve around the letters. You can always remove the sugarpaste afterwards if you want to.
