Whenever i try making red, it comes out like this, orangy-red - never red-red.  try americolour red and knead it into white fondant. try with a little bit of fondant and see how it goes.  or take some satin ice red and add a bit of orange into it. i am no expert, keep experimenting a little at a time. you should get a close enough colour to match it.
Great idea. must give it a try.
Not really sure. what sort of  cake is it made of .  maybe  60/= to 75/=
How strange, i was thinking the same reading the above posts. the moment you push the rod through, pieces of foam would go into the next cake. how do you avoid this? The above cake, looks  like dummies have been used to  separate each tier.
All these years i have been making butter cakes, ribbon cakes, and just found out that they are all "pound cakes" - equal quantities. Love it.
Can someone pls direct me to a site or tell me how many serving does a no. 6 cake pan  and No. 0, gives.  does someone have a chart for these number pans.  looking for an approximate no. pls. It will be helpful not only to me if we can compile this information some where on CC, for future reference. If you have made these no. cakes 0 to 8 in the shaped cake tins, pls let me know. thanks.
Just a thought. if there are 60 people all wont eat cake. from my experience, these figures serves about 25 pcs each (coffee size. th e nos. are about 14" in height. if you dont want to use the  no. 5 and No. o pans you can make  15x13 rectangular pans and cut out the the numbers
I melted sugar and poured it gradually along the dowel. once hardened, i pushed it into the beer can
Follow the above advice where colouring is concerned. you might have to add some hardening substance to the fondant like tylose. cut templates. cut yr fondant turn it over and place it on wax paper and gently lift and try to place it on the cake. you may have to wait for a few minutes before peeling off the paper. Never done it, but if i had to, this is how i would have done it.
Sorry, I looked at the wrong one tooooooo
