You can paint on a thin layer of piping gel where you want the snow to be and sprinkle with sanding sugar.
I would use the Wilton soccer ball pan for both. Maybe trim the head one down a little bit although they look to be about the same size.
It worked!
If you look in my gallery I have done a fish doing this 3 different times. I make them out of RKT cover them in 50/50 and use skewers to attach them into the cake. Never had a problem and they always overhang my cake board and do not touch it. I would post a pic but have not been able to figure out how on mobile device since they changed the site.
Best purchase I ever made! Only cut my self the first time I used it. Fast learner, I got my fingers out of the way the next time.
I had the same problems with my icing until I switched to hi ratio shortening. Huge difference!
AnnieCahill, I am relatively new to cake decorating (less than 2 years) and when I first started I was using Crisco and butter combo. I was having trouble with hairline cracks, blowouts on the sides, and trouble getting sharp edges. I read and read trying to find out what I was doing wrong. I tried indydeb's recipe, Sharon Zambito's and a few others. Still the same problem. Common denominator was the Crisco. I took the plunge and bought hi ratio shortening. Voila! That...
I was wondering if anyone has ever tried using half Crisco and half high ratio shortening for crusting buttercream? If so, what were your results? My recipe is one stick of butter, to 1 1/2 cups shortening. I tried mixing high ratio and Crisco on the last batch and was very pleased with the results. Sure helps to cut a little on the cost to not use all high rario! Thoughts?
I saw a cake on a site, don't remember where, and they had actually taken a sweater and made a mold of the stitch pattern with something like Sculpty and then just used it for the fondant. It looked brilliant!
