Here is the link to the cake a lady wants me to make for her daughters birthday party. It is due in almost 2 weeks.
I have a few questions, but mainly, how are these steps made? On a few of the pictures it looks carved into the cake, and on a few it looks like maybe it is just fondant or modeling chocolate shaped and decorated.
I saw a tutorial on here for using a carved out piece from the top layer, flipping it, and using it to make the stair case on the bottom (or vice versa).
Any suggestions? Also, there seems to be a carved out spot on the bottom layer (behind the reindeer)... Any clue what that is? I have NO IDEA what that is lol.. Looks like maybe a hole cut out to look like a cave? I may just not worry about that!!
Take a look at the tutorial. The cake in your link looks like a variation of this, The stairs themselves to me look like frosty light blue buttercream with white lines to delineate each step.
I'm not sure what you mean by the "hole" because I don't see what you mean. Do you mean an entryway at the top of the stairs?
I think the "hole" is just buttercream coloured to look like rock and then piped over with "snow". The stairs look carved, airbrushed blue then piped with white lines.
AHey! Sorry it took me a minute to get back!!
Thanks for the link to the tutorial :) that was shower helpful :) I think Your right about the hole not being an actual hole :)
