Looking for a mold

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I am going to be doing a friends wedding cake and she is looking for a design like this, only I am not the best freehand piper.  Does anyone know if there is a mold out there similar to this?

 

Thanks!

i don't think so

 

but you could blow that up on a copier to the size you need

 

trace the pattern of the big bold lines

 

roll fondant sausages and make those bold ones according to the pattern

 

then you kinda gotta pipe the little whispy veins in there

 

because i would go stark raving made trying to make those out of more sausages but i guess it could be done

 

but if you got the big lines planted in there--you could get the little ones!!! just practice a bit you can do this

What K8 said.  I'd roll the larger sausages by hand, but you could do the smaller ones with an extruder.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

can i ask you something??

 

that picture bothers me

 

i don't like the bride looking like betty crocker offering the cake to the camera

 

no offense to the bride the baker or betty herself--but that is off putting to me

 

i don't want her serving the cake--that dress is not a 'cake cutter' outfit

 

she needs to go dancing into the moonlight and leave the cake to her minions

 

doncha think?

I think the picture says "look what I got! This kicks the arse of a nasty sheet cake anyday, and it's MINE!" But regardless, it was probably a photo shoot anyways and a dummy cake.

That was my initial thought.  Because even a smallish 2 tier cake would be heavy enough to make her strain a little under the weight, LOL!!

 

Anyway, I don't think it's a mould.  It looks like some of it has been cut from rolled out fondant (I'd use gumpaste) and some has been done with an extruder.

Inside this fat body, there's a thin woman screaming to get out...... but I can usually shut her up with chocolate!

nasty sheet cake? you're so silly!

 

and that's why it doesn't look a real bride either

 

yes definitely looks like a photo shoot with that rainbowy background

 

it also looks maybe photo shopped?

 

dang i wish my fat little hips could photograph smaller than the cake plate icon_lol.gif

And yeah, that's no mold, that's good old fashioned hand work.

AHAHAHAHAHAHA  I am soooo glad you said this!  I totally got side tracked with the photo too.  I started wondering if it wasn't airbrushed because the cake looks pretty substantial and she appears to be holding it quite a distance from her body that I was thinking "she's not strong enough to hold the cake like that....FAKE!"

I agree. That kind of fat lace technique has appeared on a number of cakes that i've seen, lately. I'm not sure if I like it or not. On the upside, fat piping is easier to do than thin strings. At least for me, anyway, so it will be easier to pipe if you choose to do it that way. The hard part will come when you're trying to paint it all with silver lustre and not get it on the cake.

I just did a cake like this (i tried and tried to get the bride to consider another lace design, but she had Her. Heart. Set. on something very similar).  

 

Mine was a bit bigger, 10" base cake that was 10" high (yeah...no WAY a cake of size could be held that way!). I hand rolled the larger parts of the lace and used an extruder for the smaller parts.  The fine piping (strings and pearls on the stems) was done in a light grey royal.  I hand painted the larger lace with silver luster and touched up the royal.  The fondant got a good buffing with super pearl as well as the lace and the string work. I did some impressions on the larger swirls for some depth.

I just did a cake from this photo!  (I tried so very, very hard to get the bride to vary from the design, but she Had. Her. Heart. Set. on this design. It's lovely, but i try to do something unique for each customer.)  

 

Mine was a 10" double barrel so it was 10" high with a 6" top.  Yeah, no way a bride could hold out a cake in her arms like that!  

 

I hand rolled and used an extruder for the lace and used grey royal for the string work and pearls. I hand painted the fondant and did a bit of touch up on the royal.    

Double barrel 10" round with 6" topper. Fondant covered with hand crafted lace made of fondant and royal icing that was painted with silver luster. [bride provided photo that i used for inspiration (varying design as much as she'd allow), but it had no credit.]

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!
