Hi Guys! I plan to make a purse cake so I have been trying to figure out how to make a zipper. Wonder if it can be done without buying a $20 mold. Please Help!
Hi, the way I made my zipper for my Vuitton Bag was taking a thin strip of fondant cut to the size, length, thickness of a zipper...then I used a zig-zag impression roller and rolled it firmly down the strip...I then airbrushed the piece with gold shimmer...it worked great for me
absolutely!!! go get yourself a real zipper from the fabric store and use that as your mold. roll your fondant out, then press it into the zipper (or vice versa, then trip the excess off. and it'll only cost you a couple bucks! i did this on both my blue and pick diaper bag cakes. i painted them silver after they were on the cake. if you want part of the zipper "open", then just unzip part of the zipper and press the fondant into the opened side--you'll get all the little teeth marks. works great!
Nice job. Cool technique with leopard peint. Will have to try!
