I was asked to make a 2 year olds birthday cake and the theme is balloons. How do I make small 3D balloons?
Any tips would Help!
Hi, Thanx, I am just new to cakes and LOVE this website.
I was hoping to make 3D balloons that would stand into the top of the cake.
I was thinking I would shape them out of fondant and then stick them on floral wire. But I am not to sure if this is the best way to create them.
An easy way would be to shape fondant around a tootsie roll pop.
Have you made cake balls? They are usually about an inch to an inch and a half.
http://www.bakerella.com/category/pops-bites/cake-pops/ has wonderful ones, that could be shaped as balloons.
Well, if you are going to use a lollipop, why don't you just dip it in colored chocolate, or the Wilton wafers?
Thanx to both of you!
Both ideas sound so good I don't know which one to go with!
Personally, anything dipped in chocolate is ALWAYS a good thing!!!
you could do something like this on a smaller scale
hello I made my son's b-day cake with gumpaste balloons, you can see it on my photos..good luck
