Hi, I am making a Monster High Cake and have been looking through all the brilliant photos on here. My question is, is it too difficult to actually cut out the diamond shape and insert a diamond of another colour and then attach it to the cake, and if I did this would it be easier to do a top and then go round the sides (which have the diamond inserts) bandage style? Or would it be easier just to place a diamond on top of the base fondant? Or cut out diamonds once the base fondant has been placed on the cake and then insert another diamond of a different colour? I am a novice so the easiest method is preferred!
I think it would be easier to just attach a diamond shape to the side. You can put another diamond on top of that one before putting it on the cake, if you want that look. I'd get worried about making the diamond pattern on a huge piece and then wrapping the cake. It might stretch and distort the diamonds. It would also be difficult to get it to align on the top and the bottom.
AThanks, that's what I thought too. I will just add the diamonds afterwards x
