So my cousin has asked me to make the cake for her daughters first birthday.
This is what I'm aiming for (similar to): http://cdn.cakecentral.com/gallery/2015/03/851975U3Vg_pink-white-purple-amp-silver-21st-birthday-cake-with-wired-stars_900.jpg
Theme is pink and silver, so going to use plain white fondant and pink and silver stars. Seeing as I can't get silver fondant, I bought Wilton Color Mist spray. I also got pink spray, even though I can get pink fondant. Thoughts?
TIA for your help and any assistance.
Oh and I bought myself a fondant roller and smoother. Cake size is 12"x12". Base will be mud cake.
Personally, I would buy pink fondant and grey fondant and edible silver paint. You can make everything out of white and then spray them put I don't think you will get the same depth of colour on the pink especially. I had to do a lot of blue airbrushing a few weeks ago and i also ended up looking like a smurf...to the point where I was exhaling blue bogeys for 24 hours after breathing it in! It won't do you any harm, but the coloured spray does get everywhere and I don't personally think it's worth the effort! D you have star cutters?
Yeah got Cake Boss star cutters.
Might see if I can return the spray and get coloured fondant.
I've been Google'ing other cake base options instead of mud and I think I'll go with a basic butter cake recipe as it'll be cheaper a mud cake in case, well, it stuffs up LOL. I'm going to use a packet butter cake mix, as at the moment I can get 2 packets for $4 AUD, whereas one packet of mud cake mix at the cake decorating supply store is $7 AUD (Bakels).
This is the one I plan to use: http://greensbaking.com.au/products/cakes/traditional/#greens-golden-butter-cake
How many boxes would you suggest I need to fill a 12" square pan?
