Can someone please tell me the quickest and easiest way to create all those lines on a record album? I'm making a record album out of modeling chocolate or 50/50 gumpaste/fondant to accompany my cake design.

thanks!!!

If you want actual line indentations, maybe a math protractor? Put the center point in the middle of the "record" and go around. You can increase it as many times as you need.

Otherwise I would just use a 1" paintbrush and some black coloring gel, going around the cake.

I think you mean compass, not protractor. That's a good idea.

FYI - There's only one line on a record. icon_smile.gif

Oops yes that's what I meant! Lol I never did well in math...better in English and the arts! Guess that's why I'm here!

I saw Buddy do this on Cake Boss (unfortunately after I had made cake that needed this!) - he took an edging tool with serrated teeth, laid that on the "record" and held it in place while he spun the cake around on the turn table. Probably have to do this right after you have laid down the fondant before it dries. Good Luck!

You could use the teeth of a comb (clean of course) or the tines of a fork and just hold it in place while spinning the disc around.

You could try it using a cake comb on a turntable.
