I am meant to be doing a venezualea themed cake for a lady, the flag colors are red yellow and blue. my original idea was to make a flag and drape it over the fondant covered cake. The flag didn't work. i've tried 4 times and it just didnt work. i tried putting the colors in strips around the cake but it looked messy. Im out of ideas. As a result my white fondant covered cake is ruined and needs to recovered, i have no white left, only a midnight blue. The flowers are purple so at least those colors match. but its not really themed to this country. Can anyone offer any ideas??? Its 10;40m and it due tommorow at 2pmÂ
AHow about making a smaller flag and putting it in the center of the cake?
Can you do the thing where you pipe stars on it? I saw one recently let me find it and I'll come back and edit this post and put the link.....
ETA: Ok here it is.Â Not sure if you can make this work for your cake or not
Thank you guys for sugestions, i managed to recover from my cake disaster and the client loved her cake :) I did make a smaller flag in the end and added more flowers, i love the pipping star idea!! i will need to do this next timeÂ
Go to the store and purchase everything to ke your own fondant. It is easy and quick!
Might be a little late, but an easy fix might be to mix up some buttercream, take off the fondant and cover in buttercream and smooth, basic white or neutral color. Â Color Â some butter cream red yellow and blue, or even a little fondant if you have some. Â Cover the entire top in the 3 colors in bands, either with the buttercream, or with rolled strips of fondant, and apply the white fondant stars. Pipe a decorative border around the top edge. This might be easy, neat and appropriate. Â you can always arrange additional decor around the sides or on top . Â Sorry, very crude sketch- on the way out the door. Â Good luck and I hope that helps.
