Hi CC Family,
So my sis-in-law's sweet 16 is coming up and she requested a set of stacked pillow cakes. Here's my problem: I purchased pillow cake pan set from Wilton and there are no directions to it. I have no idea how to ice this cake and cover the cakes in fondant.. I would also want to do 2 layers for each cake with a filling.
Please help me Guys with some directions
Hello diamondsmom, I'm not sure about the Wilton set instructions, but here are some that may help.
I've been wanting to make this pillow cake for ages. It looked to me like they where just square cakes to begin with. You could calve them out a bit to begin with. Cover as normal with fondant, then with a stitching wheel run over it to create the quilted look. I've then seen lustre painted on to some of the squares to create a patch work look and maybe what we in Australia call cashous(silver balls) in where the stitching crosses. Have you got an extruder. it would look good to do some tassels on the corners. Have the pillows all look different. Maybe stencil a pattern onto another one. Gosh, I wish I was making one. Good Luck
but being as i purchased the pans from wilton i would love to try them. we learn from trial and error so i'll give it a go before the party and see how it turns out.
