AHi, I'm making a science beacon out of fondant to go on a science themed cake and would like to have bubbles or foam coming out of the top of the beacon. Does anyone have any ideas of how I can manipulate fondant into looking like foam or bubbles. I know I could just make simple round balls as bubbles but I'm looking for something more realistic looking. Thanks ☺
There's a recipe for gelatine balls in the recipe section, maybe you can make tiny ones and have them rolling down the side?
ACan you blow bubbles in melted gelatin (like blowing bubbles in your milk when you were a kid) to get a realistic foam look?
AHmm that would probably work... But perhaps not hygienic as it will be an edible part of the decorations.

AYou could use an air compressor from an airbrush.
AI don't own an air compressor or brush :-( I'll try the gelatine balls above
AThere are other ways to inject air... Even a turkey baster would work.
Go to the kids section at most stores and get the water balloons with the little pump included. Less than $5. There is how you can blow your bubbles.
Hey Angel I just saw your finished cake! The bubbles look awesome! Wonderful job!
AGreat! Love it!!
