AHey guys, I was just wondering if anyone has a tutorial for a cake like this.?? I have not covered a cake shaped like this before. It looks like the one in this pic has the fondant cut into shapes and put on, is that hard to do.??
AAlso what's the best way to get ganache smooth on a cake like this.? Any tips are very much appreciated.!!
AI made this cake almost identically a few months ago. You can just bake a couple 12" square layers in a firm carve-able cake, and carve your train engine, cart and carriage from these. Stack and fill to create your higher parts.
Use a small flat spatula to apply your ganache.
Cover each part with one piece of fondant, the cut out all your small pieces of fondant to use as the decorations.
It's a bit fiddly, but a fun cake to make!
I have a pic of mine on my FB page.
AThankyou do much.! How do I find you on Facebook.?
AJust look down there in the signature area | | | | | | V
AAlso did you let the fondant dry a little before you put it on the cake or did you stick it straight on.?
AYou can do it either way. I usually just do it straight after covering.
AFound it. Thanks again for your help.!!!
AI have one last question for you, how big was your cake and how many servings.?
Thanks again for your help.
