I was asked to make a cake that resembles a starbucks frappuccino in a clear plastic take away cup. I will try to attach a pic.
How do you think I should approach this cake? How do I make the clear plastic? Or can I use something else? All help appreciated!
are attachments disabled? I cant attach a pic to my msg
I think that I would make the cake, then cover in fondant and paint with confectioner's glaze to shine it up. If you wanted, you make it look like a plastic rim by making an isomalt rim. But if you put the whip cream around the rim , it won''t really be necessary. You could use little dots of piping gel to look like condensation. I would use an edible image for the starbucks logo.
Thanks cakesrock great ideas
I was thinking of making an isomalt shape too for the cup but i'm not sure yet. I might try the glaze it sounds easier.
Yeah, the glaze is easier. Have you worked with isomalt? It is a bit finicky, I find...And if you haven't done it before, I don't think I would try it for the first time with that project.
You can make it look close enough to the Frap in the plastic cup without using that. I'm not even sure how you'd make a mold to achieve that look?! I have only been semi-succesful with gems. I tried to make a cover for a blackberry and decided to ditch the idea when the isomalt when south (out of my make-shift mold). I'm considering trying mirrors next, but may not commit to it!
I did make a few diamonds for engagement rings before with isomalt. They were ok but not perfect. A few air bubbles inside and not-so-clear.
I dont think I'm gonna use isomalt. No mold and too much of a hassle
good luck and please post pics after!
of course!!! Thanks for the help!
