I live in the UK, am 15 years old and just starting out in cake decorating. I was wondering if your guys could answer some of my many questions and give as many tips as possible
- Ok... so I am going to try and model some chickens for a birthday cake in May and not totally sure on what type of icing is best for the job.
Help would be deeply appreciated.
Hi Evangiline , and welcome to CC . Ive been a member for a couple of months and learned loads here . For your chickens I would suggest you use sugar flower paste ( the Americans call it gumpaste ) , or just use fondant mixed with a little tylo powder . You can also use modelling chocolate but you might be best to try one of the others first . I find it easier anyway . You will find loads of tutorials on youtube and Google and here on CC . Good luck with the baking ! Its a great hobby .
You could use rolling fondant mixed with tylose powder, marzipan, or modeling chocolate.
Thank you both. You have been a great help.
I will see what I can get hold of and try a few chickens, in different materials, and let you know how it goes! can't wait!
