I am reposting this... Need help, suggestions, tips to make a 3D Barney cake.
Any ideas to get the realistic Barney face is very much appreciated!
Barney Rubble, from The Flintstones?
Barney Fife, from The Andy Griffith Show?
Barney Miller, from Barney Miller?
Barney Collier, from Mission Impossible?
Barney Oldfield, the bicycle racer turned pioneer auto race driver?
For all I know, you could be talking about some purple dinosaur.
In fondant or buttercream? If it's buttercream I print out a picture (the actual size you need) and lay it over the crumb coated cake. I use a toothpick to trace the face onto the icing on the cake. Then I pipe over the tracing in the colors I need. If it's fondant I'm sure you could still print a picture and trace the eyes, nose, mouth, etc over the fondant and then attach to the cake. I'm sure there's a better way, but if all else fails...
@cakemama... Thank you very much for your suggestion, it's a good idea worth trying!
@james... As a mother of young kids Barney - of course - is the purple dinosaur, never thought there could be another one
If anyone else has suggestions/tips that will help me execute this cake please post, thank you!!!
