I need to make a slice of a cake. So im using a dummie and cutting it into a wedge How do i make it look realistic? Im coving the cake with fondant. Does anyone have any ideas or photos? thanks
I would go ahead and cover the whole thing in fondant first. Make a template that would go up the wide side (or back) of the wedge and across the top (this would look like a long thin triangle attached to a square or rectangle). Decide how I wanted to "torte" it - two layers of cake with one layer of filling etc. Since this is a dummy cake I am assuming that it is for display only. If it was to be chocolate I would carefully spread some chocolate icing on the "cake" sections into which I would press ground coffee or something else quite brown. Pipe some filling using tinted piping gel - possibly red for raspberry into which I had mixed some sesame seeds. Then I would add an additional layer of fondant (use the template that you made earlier to cut it to the exact shape) that came up the back of the cake and across the top and decorate as desired.
thank you thank you i will let you know how it will look since its for brides magazine
thats amaaaazing! hw did you get the "cake" to have the sponge texture? congrats.
Great Job!!! Thanks for posting pictures.
You did such a great job on that. Definitely a pure talent!
Thanks... I had to make it look realistic and to contrast. It's 10" high also and very happy how it turned out.. I used sprinkles for the texture
