Hi Guys, The cake below is one that my Halloween baby (about to turn 5) is requesting for his birthday. There are many techniques on this cake that I'm nervous about! I figure if I'm not doing the cake as a job, it's best to try these things out for myself.
Question 1: i really want to get this vibrant green, but my bottom layer is going to be 10". I find it really hard to color fondant, esp large amounts of it... there is no way I can get pre-tinted fondant in this color. My options are "Duff" has a great "electric green" food coloring that I can use, but will I get it bright enough? My second option is buying pre-tinted green, but I only can find a kelly/leaf kind of green.
Question 2: The topper- in this case my bottom is going to be 10", middle layer 8". I really don't NEED anymore cake... My options are- do a RKT topper (it's probably going to be equivelent to a 6" cake, so I figure it will be super heavy.. I'm worried bc I dont think the 8" can hold all that weight or second option is to make a 6" cake and carve it (my concern on this one is getting it nice and symmetrical...plus the extra cake issue)
I know it's a lot, but any feedback would be SO awesome. Thank you in advance!
