Hi everyone..im new to this group..! Love viewing all your cakes and they are simply adorable..!
I've got a question..! Im doin a cake this weekend with alice in wonderland ice queen theme..
How do i get the snow/ice effect on the cake..i want it to sparkle..!
Hope someone can help me..!
Thanks a lot everyone..!
edible glitter is an option.
PME makes a pearl luster spray in a can. I have used it on buttercream and fondant and it works well.
There's a PME White Glitter Flakes which are awesome to make snow effect.
You can see it here http://www.google.pt/imgres?q=pme+edible+white+glitter+flakes&um=1&hl=pt-PT&biw=1889&bih=925&tbm=isch&tbnid=ik6Jt54K-Cpk2M:&imgrefurl=http://www.pmeartsandcrafts.com/en/glitter-flakes/3809-white-glitter-flakes-283g.html&docid=feqjDvhfi1is4M&imgurl=http://www.pmeartsandcrafts.com/3809-16596-large/white-glitter-flakes-283g.jpg&w=300&h=300&ei=5pGyTvqTNorysgbi3qWmBA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=177&vpy=136&dur=1516&hovh=225&hovw=225&tx=130&ty=106&sig=118012109788314667368&page=1&tbnh=138&tbnw=138&start=0&ndsp=53&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0
Thks for the feedback...! I will check it out at the stores..! Anyway..! Can i use rock sugar..?
Rock sugar could look ok but would not be as shiny as the other options given above, it might give more of the effect of pieces of ice and not soft sparkly snow
All the above items are not available in my country
So, i was thinking rock sugar is my last option...! I do hv pearl luster dust, can i paint tat on my cake..!
When my mother got re-married her whole cake was covered in what im assuming is rock suger (really large sugar crytals like mashed up rock candy) and I just wanted to let you know that, as someone who ate the cake, it is not so pleasant. It is hard and felt like it might cut the roof of my mouth. Cruncky on cake was a little strange. Hers was over fondant so most people just pulled it all off.
It did look beautiful though and very "winter"
Hi dear...! I thought tat too...! It will surely ruin the texture of the fondant when we want to eat it..!
Well guess i hv to hunt around for the above suggested items..!
Anyway..! Someone suggested sanding sugar..! Wat is tat..?
Wilton makes a white edible glitter you could look into.
Uma1203 i don't know where you are from, but maybe you can buy the PME flakes through the Ebay.com or Ebay.UK
