Hi Everybody!!!!

I am in the early stages of designing a farm cake for my mother-in-law. Does anyone have any instructions for making vegetables out of fondant or butterceam? I have a small house mold that I'm gonna turn into a barn and a few toy tractors from the dollar store. I was checking online but found nothing. icon_cry.gif I have until July so I have time to experiment. It will also be a test for transporting a cake. It will be a sheet cake but will be transported in the summer.

Joe

Hey Joe...I did a farm cake and made the veggies out of buttercream. Here is the link, if you are interested!

To transport, I just used a double cake board in the box and put it in the back of my SUV, with no problems!

Can't help you with fondant but here is what I did with Royal icing...I think fondant would be better though, you can make them more realistic.

I made mine with fondant. PM me if you like them and I'll give you instructions.

I also think that if you make green roses with buttercream that they look like cabbages.

Here's the pic:

They are nice cakes!!

Joe,

Wilton has directions for making BCI veggies. I don't know how large you want them but they do give instructions. Just look under cake deco. I think that's the one. You'll find it.
