Hi all!! I JUST joined CC today. I can't believe it took me this long to find CC and join. I am so in love with the site already.
I am going to be doing a half sheet cake for a 2 year old's birthday party for NEXT weekend. The theme is Elmo and I have a picture of what they'd like the cake to look like here, and they are wanting it to be frosting instead of fondant and even though I plan to use fondant for some of the decorations, I can't decide if I want to make the polka dots with BC or use fondant for those. I also plan to use the pearl sixlets for a faux piping border. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advanced everyone! :)
I would do fondant dots or butter cream transfer dots to get the flat effect. If your trying to save time fondant may be the easiest.
I would make fondant circles as well. You won't have to worry about adding all those colors to your buttercream, and it's faster
that's interesting -- i would do buttercream because it is easier to color the icing, saves your hands from kneading -- just pipe a dot or swirl (of american buttercream) and flatten it with a paper towel or a brand new and uber clean smooth weave towel
