So I am doing a tambourine cake, the tambourine being very similar to the one in the picture. I am having trouble with how I am going to stick the jingles (the little metal disks that make the sounds) around the edge of the cake. I plan on making these out of gumpaste (and removing before serving). I think I am going to make them a crescent shape so the inner edge fits flush with the outside of the 10" cake.
But, what do you think would be the best way to stick them on? I wonder if just regular gum glue...but I would need to support them somehow till the glue dries. If I put toothpicks under them I am going to end up with little holes all the way around the cake in the fondant!
Many thanks in advance.
i'd put the toothpicks in them instead of under.
do the holes really matter once the cake is cut and served?
after all that's when the holes would finally be visible.
don't worry about the holes
worry about getting good pics to put on here!
Man I didn't even think about putting the toothpicks IN the jingle. Thankyou!! And no, I don't care about the holes when its being served, but I didn't want them there while it's on display.
I'll post pics if it turns out any good, and if not it will go in the cake disaster section. I have to travel with the cake (stacked on a 12" round chocolate cake base) for 6 hours in the car, in Spain, this weekend, in 40ºC heat. Will have to jack the AC up and freeze on the journey.
Thanks again Doug.
Wow! Very nice!
WOW looks amazing
