Hello dear cakers,
I want to decorate a cake look like this building,i don't have any ideas how to make windowsills,i need ergent help please!!!
Am not clear re what type of help you need...but hoping the following ideas might assist.
For the windows...perhaps you could try casting a thin layer of blue tinted isomalt into small squares of silicon....then join & surround the window panes with thin strips of black tinted isomalt.
For the white colums, flowerboxes, and other window/wall decorations.....I think all I'd do is sculpture the cake to include the various shapes required......smooth & sharpen the shaped cake with a firm ganache coating....cover ganached cake with fondant....and stick extra fondant strips over fondant where needed to acheive extra depth.
melt some blue jolly ranchers -- they come in blue don't they?
wait you mean the layered cream colored parts? draw a template and onto the base of the building lay the first piece down -- looks like it will be much thicker than the ones following -- then lay the next smaller one on top of that then the rest -- glue by moistening the pieces together -- pieces should be very dry before applying -- or use modeling chocolate because it doesn't stretch --
best building to you
eww but the top piece is going to be a lulu - oh gosh all those corners are mitered -- mike mcacarey could do this cake easy peasy but it's a killer -- way too many mitered corners for my pay grade
i think i would draw it
ok the horizontal ones -- you could just make rectangles to stack on top of each other -- i'd use very crispy fondant* or gum paste --
the three rounded ones -- i'd do them in several additional steps -- i'd do the rounded parts then the straight ends -- i would make formers and place the different thicknesses just for the rounded part (seen in the middle above the window) so that after drying i could assemble and sand off the excess to get down to the correct angle -- and be drying the edges at the same time and assemble and sand those off -- i'd also be prepared to add a little decorating license to pipe over that -- a miter is one thing but 20 miters per window with half of them in a curve -- c'mon -- yoiks
*fondant treated to get crispy with cornstarch/tylose/gum paste -- i like to start with fondant because it has a teensy bit of give where it doesn't tend to crack as easy as straight gum paste or pastillage
DECOgel is great for windows and glass!
