Anybody have any suggestions on how to achieve the smoke effect from the bottom of this rocket? http://www.flickr.com/photos/donbuciak/2284636526
Or something similar? Like the shuttle from the photo attached, my rocket will stand upright (but not above) on the table.
Thanks in advance!!!
Looks to me like a load of thick icing piped out with a very large round tip. Kind of like doing clouds. Hope I understood your question.
I was thinking it looked more solid almost...kind of like a meringue maybe? I have no idea...but I'd sure appreciate ideas. Icing seems....I don't know...difficult to work with in that way...difficult to keep fresh?
I'd just blob icing onto cake scraps built up underneath for the height so there's only mostly one layer of icing and air brush it or use the cans of spray. The red/pink stuff is something different, cooked sugar or piping gel?
It's blobbed out a big a$$ tip real real big opening and just waltz away with it--very confident--blob blob blob pipe pipe swirly swirl.
It could be marshmellow or Italian buttercream could look like that.
(marshmellow is an alternate spelling for marshmallow--I like it--not that all my misspellings are legit--this one is )
i had to make smoke coming out of a beaker for my son's science party cake...and i used cotton candy!!! got a tub of it at the dollar store placed it on and used a kabob skewer to fluff it out..worked wonderful...you have to do it last minute though or the moisture of cake and or air will make it melt down...hope this helps
Ok....cotton candy did come to mind. But...I have the hardest time finding it around here, and the colors I've found (at Chuck e Cheese) are pink and blue...lol.
I actually used cotton candy to decorate a ballerina cake I made for my daughter last year. I didn't know that it would dissolve...luckily, I put it on last minute by chance. Honestly though, when it dissolved the next day...the crust it left was delicious!
