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!!
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...
you just want to make a big cake pop? or a bust --you mean ahead and shoulders?
whachu wanna make?
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!
...and I don't want to use dummies hehehe
