I plan on making a cake for my neices birthday. She is turning 3 and obsessed with Dorothy. I have been brain storming so I can do things ahead of time instead of last minute like normal.
I have been thinking of doing either a carved cake based on the dragon one from Debbie Brown.
The other thing I have been thinking is to do a simple stacked cake but cut out white pickets at least the height of the cake and sticking these to the side and then making a Dorothy figurine in the middle (ditting on oreo cookie dirt) surrounded by roses. I was leaning towards this because I could make the roses, pickets and dorothy figure all ahead of time.
If I am using MMF mixed with tylose how long ahead can I do it? I assume roses can be made weeks ahead if kept in an air tight container. What about the figurine? Will it crack as it dries?
Does anyone else have any ideas?
I made a Wiggles cake for my DD and made the figures and started the figures and car a couple of months ahead of time!! there are pics in my photos if you want some ideas
THanks. I will make up the fondant next week and get started. Just a quick question re: weight of Dorothy if made out of gumpaste/MMF. I would imagine it would be very heavy even if its just the size of a jar of jam/coffee. Should I put it on a base and dowel the bottom layers?
Also do you remember what colour you made dorothy from?
Here is the links to the cake I made for my little girl last year. I made Dorothy, the arch and roses ahead of time and I should have made the pickets ahead of time too. feel free to use this idea. They are two different views.
I did Dorothy's head as a smash cake. It was my 1st time doing a fondant cake. Learning who the Wiggle's were and a fondant cake wore me out!!!! lol.. It was a true experience!!!!! lol
Rikash your cake is where I originally got the idea from (although modified somewhat) - although I saw it on another website - not cake central. Its gorgeous!
Lu - Is that poured fondant on her head? Its so smooth!
The fondant I used is MMF. I had some flat tool that the lady said I needed to do fondant with. That is all I did. Thank you for the compliment.
