I love this!  Wish you could show me how you did it. How do you get the design onto the tummy?  Are they stacked sections?  The rest I can probably figure out.  And how did you do the cake top & cake board?  Was it with a transfer sheet?  So many little pieces!

 

I had gotten the impression, from what little bit that I saw, that the 'patterned paste' was a thin single layer effect, while caning, as done on the video, was for slicing off multiple same effect items.   Now I see that they are all parcel & piece of the same thing, just in varying degrees.

 

I have only been doing the 'Cake' thing for about a year, that was when I discovered youtube.  Am trying to pick up as much as I can, before I get too old to do it. lol  Arthritis is already a daily battle.  Kneading dough is supposed to help, though it does not always feel like it!  I am delving into as many new areas as I can find, and just love to see new things, and 'try' to figure out how to do them.  This was new to me, but apparently not to a lot of you 'Cakers' out there.  I definitely do not mean to give the impression that I know what I am doing..., just that I am having fun doing it!  There is soooo much to see & learn.  I retired last year, and have been keeping myself busy with the grands, & caking.  I consider myself very fortunate.

The design on the tummy , I have sliced off three rounds of my paste and carefully rolled them together to make the tummy , the horns and tail scales are a sliced piece cut diagonally and then slightly rolled .  The top of the cake and cakeboard is done with a royal icing stencil , This was done with a lacy scrapbooking paper . It is a quick and easy method but looks really impressive.

Have any of you worked with this medium??  If so, what were your results?  What other applications can it be put to? 

Can you post some pictures to go by?

 

blwiley: those look like those old fashioned hard candies that we got as kids, with flowers or flags inside the candy.  very interesting designs.

I have been meaning to try this technique for soooooo long.  It's good to hear that it works well.  Maybe one day I will get around to it.

 I am going to try & find The Contemporary Cake Decorating Bible in the library first, cheaper that way.  Got a sneak peak at it on B&N site, but they only let you see a sampling of pages.  Thanks for introducing me to this book.  I had heard of The Cake Bible, but had not thought any more about it.  I have too many recipe books now. lol

Hi Chellescakes!

 

Thanks so much for the instructions.  The grands are going to love these little fellas!  They are 3 & 6, and want to play with icing every time they come.  But then, every kid in the neighborhood comes to my home to play with icing! lol  I keep batches of it made all the time, just for them.  Doesn't have to be a cake in the picture.  I make the MMF totally by hand, no mixer.  And, yes, I DO own one-lol.  Have a great day!

Hi everyone!

 

I have been busy with other projects, but have not lost interest here!  I told Amelia on CakeFu, just the other day, that if I ever did a 'show cake', it would definitely include caning.  I just love the effect.

 

I have another site that isn't caning, but it is used in decorating.  Check it out.  It just might save you some money too. lol

 
 
And this site might be of interest if you make your own molds.
 
Be happy{:-)

Hello Chellescakes, I don't think I ever thanked you properly for your help with this.  My sister loves it too.  She is into dragons big time!  She has grands & greatgrands.  Once again, thanks!
