I made a strawberry shortcake that stood beside the cake, but you could use it as a topper also. I just found a picture of her online then cut out the picture traced it on thin gumpaste. Let it harden then hand painted her.
AHi thanks for your help I love you strawberry shortcake,can you tell me how many days have to let dry and how painted if you used water or alcohol to mix color and how you attaching the figure to cake? my will be over the top ,thanks again
APlease I need help can someone tell me how transfer imagen from cardboard plate to gumpaste to make a topper cake? Please the cake is due Saturday
Well it only took over night to dry since it was really thin. I painted it with airbrush color. But you can use food markers or color and vodka. And the best way would be to attach it after it is delivered and having toothpicks or some kind of sticks to attach to the back with chocolate or royal icing something that will dry fast and be very sturdy. I just added a small amount of white chocolate to the back and stuck it on the cake.
I don't know what a cardboard plate is but to make the image outlines on the gumpaste, all you need to do is have the image sitting on the gumpaste, its best to rub some shortening on the table to prevent the gumpaste sliding then lay the image on top of the gumpaste, take a toothpick or if you have gumpaste tools use a ruffle stick and use medium pressure to outline the picture like you would a pencil. Lift the photo off the gumpaste then use a exacto knife to cut it out.
