I have an easy hocky puck cake coming up but I want to put some effort into the cake board to make it look like well played hockey ice, like the photo in the link below. I plan to cover with fondant but do I do white or blue tinted fondant? And what do I do to get that white dusted "skated on" look?
I'd use a light blue fondant, slightly thicker than usual for covering a board. Lay it on the board and let it set up for at least an hour. Then, take toothpick and scratch the surface of the fondant. It'll make it's own dust. Then, I think I'd sprinkle with some disco dust.
You could use a white fondant, paint on the lines, then paint on a glaze like (like confectioners glaze) then use powdered sugar for the dust- drag a fork or toothpick through it. Please post pics!
Thanks for those two ideas. I think I'll make a couple test squares to see whick method works better. As I said, the cake will be the easy part on this project.
This is different thought, but you can also get isomalt and once melted, tint some bluish and some redish, combine on a flat sheet pan, let cook, then cut it up with a sharp knife and trim edges to fit your cake board good,,,glue down onto cake board with piping gel to stick or melt more isomalt to glue it down too. It sounds complicating, but it's really not.
Hope this helps at all.
Best of luck!
