Hi! Please help - I want to copy this cake and I do not know how in the world they created the name out of fondant with all those colors. Does anybody know?? I can't figure out how to color each section of the fondant so it looks like this.....please see attached photo
ANY INSIGHT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
Welcome to the family amy! I would suggest laying the strips of gp out over a piece of plain gp that is slightly damp. the give it a quick roll over with your rolling pin to adhere it well. Then just cut your letters out and allow to dry. Good luck, and let us know how it turns out!
I think you just take a strip of each colour and line them up. Add a little water so they stick and roll pushing them together.
That should work. Any other ideas??
or you could do the easy way and just use white fondant and then color the letters after they dry with edible markers. much easier and less waste.
I agree with MoselsbyMark. you need the fondant for the cake itself, so a couple of days ahead of time, color your fondant then use those for your strips over damp gumpaste. Otherwise, if you paint it directly it will be harder to get the colors to match the colors in the cake.
I AGREE WITH USING THE FONDANT OVER GUMPASTE....so it matches welcome to cc
Hello and Welcome!! I agree...fondant over gumpaste would be the best way to go
