I need to know the easiest way to put different colored flames on a truck. Is there a pattern out there to use an edible image? How hard is it to cut out of fondant and place on? I'm kinda stuck on this one....thanks for any help.
You can Google "flame clipart images" for hundreds of pictures that can be used for your edible image, or as a template for cutting out from fondant.
Depending on the detail needed in the flames, cutting them from fondant would be pretty easy.
I would use fondant. I used fondant for the flames on this cake http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1786636 I dyed my fondant yellow and then aribrushed red and orange.
I've done one cake with flames by printing out an image from a Google search and using that as a template to trace the outlines on fondant. But I now have a cricut and the make-the-cut program, so I was able to put the image on that and have the machine cut the flames out. I did marble the fondant before cutting, using yellow, red and orange so that it would look more like flames.
If you really want easiest check if any store carries Lucks have a flames edible image over black
I've painted flames on using buttercream tinted red, yellow and orange each thinned with corn syurp, mixing them as they're painted on. They can have all different kinds of tips and texture that way.
Thanks for the input. I have to put just the flames on a blue truck, so I can't use the edible image from Lucks....but thank you. I have an edible image printer, so I thought that would be easiest....I'm still learning what to do with it.
