I am making my son a birthday cake and have made the fondant race cars. I was wondering if there was something to make windows and look like glass?
I won't need a lot, just a tiny amount, but any ideas would be great!
I have had the best luck with gelatin sheets (find them in the baking aisle near the jello etc at the grocery store) and have used them in a lot of my cakes for windows. I recently used them in my Coronation St. cake (and painted detailed designs on them). They are very versitile, but it helps to wet them a bit, as they don't bend well....
There is also an edible varnish recipe that a lot of cc'ers use. I have tried it, but did not have luck. It gooped and would not set for me. Not sure what I did wrong .... But here it is:
I have also tried isomalt, but I didnt' achieve the desired results with that either...
Thank you very much. I had been searching for things and couldn't find anything!
I haven't done it yet, but I saved this cake by lalaine. They mixed black gel and vanilla and painted it on.
Hi Kdbohm, what did you end up doing for the windows? Do you have pictures? I have to make a car cake in two weeks and I'm trying to figure out the best way to make the windows as well. Thanks!!
