AHi everybody

I live in Spain and am making a golf themed cake for this Friday. It is a Madeira cake with a BC filling and ready to roll icing on to cover it.

Do I need to cover the cake with BC before I use the icing? Also which is best to use for the grass BC or RI? Im just worried that the BC will melt it is due to be about 26c here on Friday.

Very new to cake decorating so any information and help is really appreciated.

Thanks

Hi sam83 welcome to CC!

You mentioned BC or RI for grass - would you consider using sugar paste? Try pushing some coloured sugar paste / fondant through a garlic press or clay gun for a grass effect - have a look this technique used - on the funky christening cake in my CC photo album. Good luck with your cake. Hope this helps!

AHi Margaret393

Thank you for help. Didn't think of anything like that i will give it try. The person who I'm making it for loves BC do you think it would hold its shape?

Sorry for all the questions but never really made anything like this before. I've managed to do all the decorations golf cart, flags and even made piping gel but just panicking about the grass.

Thanks again for your help.

If you want to stick with  BC for the grass, you can use Wilton tip #233.
