My husband landed a couple of good finds at one of the local thrift shop...got a few new cake pans all for just pennies! One of them is a large silicone rose shaped pan.
I've never been one for shaped/formed pans but I thought I might try it out. My question is....how should I cover the cake? I'm guessing fondant won't work? Butter-cream might be pretty tedious? What about poured fondant? I've never tried poured fondant before but am always looking to try new things.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks much!
I would stick with rolled fondant. I have tried 2 recipes for poured fondant and both failed miserably
I think fondant would work, but i think you would have to try and create seperate petals rather than covering with one sheet
Ok, great! Thanks very much. Should I know anything special about making sure the cake comes out of this pan after it's backed? This pan is intimidating me for some reason! All those nooks and crannies!!
I don't have any ideas for you cause I'm a newbie lol but I desperately want to see pictures when you're done!!!!! Good luck
You just need to use plenty of cake release and make sure its right in all those nooks and crannies lol. Its basically a flexible character pan
