I am making a skateboard cake and can't decided what technique I want to use to get the image the customer wants. I'll try attaching a picture.. hope it works.
I'm torn between hand cutting the fondant to create the same design or hand painting it on.
I've never painted a whole cake before so it makes me nervous.... but I think it would be easiest. And painting would most resemble a skateboard really, this image even has brush strokes.
Just wondering what some of your experienced thoughts were.
I was thinking that doing the red part in fondant would work nicely and then do all the details of the figure in fondant. The blue part would be a mixture of paint and you would hand paint that on. You could probably hand paint the red part but that is a lot of painting to do. Do you have an airbrush or you doing it by hand?
Thanks for the quick response!
Airbrush is on my wishlist....one day.... so this would have to be handpainted.
Its not quite life size... measures about 18.5" long and 8" wide.
I just keep thinking when I cut the fondant and try to move it onto the cake I will totally lose the shape. I'd want the fondant/color to drape over the sides... so I can't really make it in advance and let it harden.
