I need to make a fire engine cake with a ladder leaning on a tier cake.
This is for a wedding in December. The groom witll be on the ladder rescuing the bride sitting on the cake. Thankfully it can be on a styrofoam dummy, using fondant. Question, if anyone has done a cake similar to this,what is the best structure technique, and best way to get a bright red fondant. All suggestions are welcome.
Bright red fondant? That's easy...order it! For my fire truck I used Fondarific. It was VERY bright red.
As to structure....if you're using styrofoam, just cut until you get the shape you want.
Fondarific, never heard of it, where did you order it from?
Globalsugarart.com has some really good options for red fondant. Really good prices too!
