AHi I need to make a skylanders cake for my nephews birthday this Saturday. Only problem is that his favourite skylanders character is hothead! Any one got any suggestions on how to make him out of fondant? Thank you x can't work out how to put the picture on!!
oohh glad i'm not the only one that has been given the task of trying to recreate a skylander!! Hope someone is able to help you, I had a look and it looks really complicated lol .... maybe after shaping it out of gumpaste, you could paint it? Or use modelling chocolate.
I'll be honest I wouldn't know where to start so I can't really help lol, I don't know where to start with Tree Rex that I've been asked to do ...... so any feedback I'd be interested in too :)
Good luck :)
AThanks they are so tricky! Spent the day researching modelling chocolate and rkt figures as alternatives!!
Did you ever make it? I'm in the same boat for this weekend. Post a pic if you did it. =->
AI did one but it wasn't great , really awful if I'm honest, I had his arms held up by pieces of dried spaghetti which everyone could see! It was for family luckily, I'd have been very embarrassed giving it to a paying customer! [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3089998/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
I think you're being hard on yourself. It's good. (Minus the spaghetti, right? ;->) Really though, the cake looks great. The fondant work is nice and clean. I'm totally winging mine. It's midnight..the party is in the morning, and I haven't started my figure yet. So good luck to me, right! I hope mine turns out as good as yours did. Thanks for posting a pic. =->
