AHello everybody,

[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3121913/width/200/height/400[/IMG] I want to make this cake for my daughters birthday but i don't know how to cover the cake with fondant and get the look of the melted chocolate or something like that. Can anyone help or send me a tutorial on how to do that?

Thanks in advance!

Humm...

 

There are many ways to approach it....I noted that the 2nd layer has stripes....you could use the waxpaper technique that is used for stripes to apply a cut out relief (the pink colour) around a brown covered cake or you can use a pink covered cake and top it with a layer of brown cut to the shape of the melty chocolate :)

 

Looks like it will be fun and a Gorgeous design too :)

ATo get the "melted chocolate" look on this cake, I would just do an additional later of fondant in brown. So do the "melting" from fondant in sense. It wold be a double layer,of fondant, so I would do the brown a little thinner. You could even use chocolate fondant. Hope this helps, or that I even answered your question :)

Roll out chocolate fondant to proper size, lay the cake pan on top of it in the middle. Cut the shape you want and then transfer it to your cake.
