Hi, Im new to all this but would like some advice please.
Im making a cake for a 30th birthday which is Saturday.
they have requested a movie themed cake, and want the cake as a film reel with a clapperboard on top.
Question is what on earth do i make the clapperboard from?
Have bought sugarpaste and modelling paste, ive had a trial run without much success, think i might have to leave it longer to dry more though.
Also, how do i make it stand on top of the cake when it is finished?
Sorry for all the questions but im running out of time
Thanks in advance
make flat modeling paste and let dry until hard (can speed the process is a barely warm oven)
BEFORE drying it tho' --- embed two or three skewers in to that stick out like legs (like sticks on a lollipop). when dry, just push the skewers down into the cake.
Make it from gumpaste.. it will dry quicker and harder.
