I have to recreate this complex in a cake - a school - but the slope is too high.
How can i do it? With fake cakes? How can I be sure they won't slide.
If i create that slope with cake, even knowing it will serve 200 people, i will not have enough cake for the buildings.
All tips would be appreciated.
maybe make the buildings out of rkt?
Sure you could. But if you have enough cake servings with the buildings, don't bother. Just make the slope out of layers of foam core board and cover/decorate them in fondant.
YESSS!!!!! That's it! And shoud I use plastic film before applying fondant? Only to avoid possible contact...
Well, no one is going to eat the fondant on the slope. I would do it a few days ahead if you can and then it will dry pretty hard. Just build your slope and then apply a very thin coat (just enough to make it tacky) of vegetable shortening or something of that nature. Then just roll out some fondant and slap it on. Basically you're making a cake board, just a more fancy one. The cake will be the buildings. :)
Thank you very much for your help!! Now everything seems much easier. Monday I will prepare the cake board and it will have enough time to dry. Hope this is my 1st and last edible engineer project. ;) [Sorry for my english. I'm portuguese]
Good luck, Piusinha! You'll do great! Let me know how it goes. And, your english is perfectly fine :)
Of course I will!!!! This cake is for the "pig party" at school were I teach... French. But if the buildings are normal, the rest is not normal at all. There will be fondant pigs sliding all over the place, spas, and a lot of traffic signs: no left turn, no right turn, only up and down.... and this one, recently created... :D :D . We have step classes included ;) Hopefully this is for fun!!!!!
