Hello everyone!      :cake:

I'm wondering is someone has tried to make a sculpted cake mainly with cake spackle? let's say like a giant cake pop? I'm willing to achieve a bust...wouldn't have to be massive but big enough to impress I guess...I doubt about my carving skills to achieve something fine and delicate. Could I just use firm cake spackle ans cover it with fondant and/or modeling chocolate? I'm bit worried about support too, as I wouldn't like the head to fall off!! 8-O 

Do you fellow cakers think that I should carve roughly anyway, to try and get a sturdier base to finish with the spackle? What would be the result if I use RKT under instead of a carved cake? would it work?


Thank you for your advice and help!

i use cake or rkt for sculptures--i have never used cake spackle for what it is intended for--just never used it--but it is not sturdy enough to only use for a sizeable sculpture imo--


honestly--the sculpting itself is not where the fine details come in--the sculpting is just a very good firm base--then the decorating brings in the detail--that's how i do it anyhow--


i would not recommend using just spackle--no--nothing to hold things together--

Thanks for your answer K8memphis! You're confirming what I was thinking...specially because the finished cake would have to travel a bit soooo...:ouch:

I would like to make the Avatar movie lady ;-) (Neytiri) My guess is that I probably aim too high but hey, I want to practise so may as well get out of the ribbon and brush embroidery zone!
