Does anyone have any idea on how this cake was done? I sent a message to the member but no response yet (probably super busy). I'd like to know how the texture was possibly created. How do you attach sugar, non-pereils, and dragees to the fondant? Thanks for any advice
My guess would be that she painted the surface of the fondant with piping gel and then mixed the sugar crystals, non-parells, and dragees together and either sprinkled all around the cake or gently patted them on with her hand. That's probably how I would go about it.
I just did a cake with multi size pearls on it last week, and I used piping gel. It worked very well.
Wow, that's quite a cake. Glad you asked that question and hope you'll post your results.
A member of the Wilton forum does absolutely mind-blowing cakes and quite often does some with sugar like the one above. He said that he places the cake in a large tub, suspends a bag with sugar (like the bags with the popcorn styrofoam in shipping places) and attaches a tube. He paints the cake with piping gel, then lets the sugar coat the cake. He can re-use the excess in the bucket.
Thank you to all of you! I really appreciate all of your help
