I was going to try and attempt to make a diaper bag or purse cake. Could anyone tell me how you make the zipper part? The ones on everyones cakes looks so real and I just cant figure it out. Thanks and have a great weekend.
That's a good question, I'd love to know the answer too!
Ditto , me too!
My all time favorite zipper was made by TooMuchCake...check out her photo and posts on this thread: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-610780-zipper.html
Thanks for sharing FlourPots-that info was great! Has anyone ever tried to make their own molds? Is it hard to do?
Hi. My zipper's nowhere near some of the others made from a mold, but I thought I'd show you mine. On my Pooh diaper bag, I placed a fondant strip, went down the middle length gently w/ a pizza cutter. Then on one side i made zipper "teeth" using a piece of spaghetti to just make indentions. On the "other" side of the line, I made more indentions but made sure to do it so they aren't lining up w/ the first side's indentions (trying to create the zipper locked look if you will). Then I just painted it w/ silver luster dust and vodka. Hope that makes sense. Sorry my description is not more concise but I hope I helped a little
I had no idea that there was a zipper mold! That's pretty interesting!
Lynda-bob - your zipper on your pooh cake looked great! Thanks for telling us how you did it!
You're welcome, mamabrat.
I agree...lynda-bob your zipper is awesome, using spaghetti for the indentations is brilliant!!
Thanks for the compliments you guys
