Hi all,
I got a request today to make a cake incorporating a gazebo and large redwood trees for an engagement party. My first thought was..no problem there has got to be a cookie cutter set for a gazebo, but i can't find one. I looked in the gallery but didn't see much in the was of gumpaste gazebos. Here's a pic of the one I'm doing. It's going to travel about 3 hours, for family. I was hoping it there might be a mold or something? Has anyone ever seen one?
Thanks for your help.
LL

Hey there
I don't know about a gazebo mould but I'd say your best bet for strength and durability would be to make this using gelatine paste as it will dry rock solid and hold up well. I did a gazebo for a night garden kids cake (not in photos coz it was one of my first cakes n it's not good enough to post) and gelatine paste workedreally well.

Hiya
Gelatine paste ( possibly called something different where you are) is basically a paste that is made from scratch which has gelatine in it. It can be used for things which stand proud eg aeroplane wings, sail on a boat etc. as it dries very hard. The recipe I have is from a book but if you want it to have a go i'll pm you so we don't infringe copyright by posting on the forum.

May I be forwarded (PM) the recipe for the geletin paste. I have football field cake to make and this will probably do really well for the goal posts.

Please PM the recipe.

Thanks,

No it dries way harder in a very short space of time. I'd use gumpaste for figures but this for stuff that stands proud and has nothing for support
