can someone tell me if these pigs are fondant or modeling clay or what? I will attempt to make these if I can find instructions. I will appreciate any info you can give me.
AI've done a couple of these cakes this summer, and made my pigs out of fondant with some tylose added in. I started my pigs about 4 days before the cake. I didn't have instructions for the pigs, just tried to recreate the picture I was given. The ears were the trickiest for me. I dressed up the hot tub with ribbon and some RI flowers at the base. Hope this helps. a
Thanks so much. I will get some fondant and tylose. Can I get tylose at Michael's or Hobby Lobby? I just need to make a birthday cake for a little girl that is obsessed with pigs. Luckily her bd is not until oct 27 so I have time to play with it.
I have done this several times. Tylose is not necessary
Have you seen this tutorial?
As luck would have it there is a tutorial on the cc front page. I also will watch the tutorial suggested by siani. Thanks for all ya'll help. I can't wait to try this.
I made this cake during the summer. I made the pigs out of fondant and didn't add tylose as they were going to be eaten.
You don't need Tylose just use 50/50 that's fonfdant/gumpaste.
I made my piggies using wilton pink fondant. They came out so cute, I wish I could make a wedding cake with piggies on it. Thanks again for all ya'll help.
ABoth of mine for display only in high humidity conditions so the tylose was a precautionary measure. Glad to know there's a tutoria so canimprove the next one. l
AI made this for a fourth of July birthday and made my pigs from gum paste.
Nadushka,yours came out cuter than mine.
last time I did it I put a cowboy hat and sunglasses on the pig leaning against the side of the tub. I will see if I can find pictures
