How can I make tread marks onto a cake, like the tread on a hockey puck?
thanks for your help..
I made a construction site cake (see my photos) and just rolled a toy tractor with treads along the soft fondant. Then I emphasized the imprints with some black petal dust. It lookes pretty convincing.
wow, all of your cakes a so great. thanks for the idea..the treads on a puck are like x's..
I have used needlepoint canvas. Because it's not very deep, I got a better impression off the cake. After rolling over the canvas on the fondant with a rolling pin, I trimmed the fondant and wrapped it around the cake. Then, placed a circle of fondant on top. Unfortunately, the impression didn't show up in any photos, but it was really cool in person.
Sorry, I grew up in Minnesota -- you would think I would remember what a hockey puck looks like!
DIANELM..thank you it's a great idea..I just bought a fine mesh plastic square from the fabric store. It's going to work.I appreciate yur help..by the way, the bow cake is great.. perfect bow.
Hope it works for you amyroy1! I've also used the plastic mesh to make the rubber floor you see at an ice rink. I'd show you a pic, but the site won't allow pics to be uploaded at the moment. If you really want to see it, you can email me at eyedewcakes @ yahoo . com (take out spaces).
