A while ago somebody sent me a link to instructions on how to make the thomas head cake but I can't find it. Can someone send it to me please?
same link i used, its great
Thanks for your replies but the cake I want to do isn't a 3d cake. If you go on 'apieceofcake-dolores' pics, you'll see what I mean. Would the face be done in the same way?
Can someone yet back to me please ?
thanks, do you have an idea of how the clouds were done and how she may have done the border around the face and base? i only have a ribbon cutter.
Those clouds are piped onto the board. Probably a #12 tip. As for the boarders, it looks to me like they just rolled out fondant, like a snake. I find that to be very aggravating, I can't get it even. I'd just use your ribbon cutter & cut a thin ribbon to use. Google Thomas the Train videos & you will get some more ideas on how to make the 3D face. I found some really cool ones a while back, a lot of them for the 3D cakes. Mine wasn't 3D but here is a link to it. Hope this helps!
Edna has a great suggestion for rolling the fondant "snakes" out evenly using a stick as a guide. Check it out in her pearl-making tutorial:
