I am making a bass cake for next weekend and was wondering how to go about making the fins?
(if you look at my pic's)
I made a little template so my fish fins would be the right size then cut them out with a mini pizza cutter wheel and made the lines with a fondant tool. Then just let them dry a couple days.
Make sure and make the fins a little longer so there will be something to stick into the cake and hold the fin up. My fish was a RKT so I made a little cut with a knife and stuck the end of the fin inside the RKT.
Hope this helps! Good luck!!
I freehand cut mine and score and fray the edges with a fondant tool (the one that looks like a shell) then insert a toothpick or two (halfway in). Insert into completed fish and airbrush them altogether. I make mine at the same time I'm making the fish (tylose added) and they are plenty dry.... but also I live in super dry Alaska.
I use mmf with tylose powder. I have a few fish on my photos. I use a flower cutter that looks like a fish fin, and then I use a veiner tool to put the lines in the fins.
