Open Gift Shower Cake

I was so excited to try one of these! The cake is short because it's a flourless chocolate (which, with great effort, I torted + filled w/raspberry puree...it was like cutting thru clay) topped w/whipped ganache. All decos' are fondant except the baking tools which were made using a chocolate mold+painted w/food colo. and luster dust. The lid is fondant w/gumtex (and a cardboard cake circle for stability). Thanks to everyone here for inspiration and help - couldn't have done it without you!

excellent work! where did you get the choc moulds from?

Thanks! I bought them on ebay - use "baking set" or "baking kit" + candy + mold when you search and you'll find several sources.

Very cool. Love that bow (I haven't been able to make a bow yet lol).....is the "paper" fondant too? :)

ceshell Says... 8 years ago

Yes, the paper is fondant too, w/gumtex. The bow was a challenge, as the fondant was a little wack...it looks better from far away, but I'm still happy w/my first try.
