A while ago somebody sent me a link to instructions on how to make the thomas head cake but I can't find it. Can someone send it to me please?
same link i used, its great
Thanks for your replies but the cake I want to do isn't a 3d cake. If you go on 'apieceofcake-dolores' pics, you'll see what I mean. Would the face be done in the same way?
Can someone yet back to me please ?
A Google search turned up this:
If you scroll through the comments, she gives a brief description of how she did the face.
thanks, do you have an idea of how the clouds were done and how she may have done the border around the face and base? i only have a ribbon cutter.
Those clouds are piped onto the board. Probably a #12 tip. As for the boarders, it looks to me like they just rolled out fondant, like a snake. I find that to be very aggravating, I can't get it even. I'd just use your ribbon cutter & cut a thin ribbon to use. Google Thomas the Train videos & you will get some more ideas on how to make the 3D face. I found some really cool ones a while back, a lot of them for the 3D cakes. Mine wasn't 3D but here is a link to it. Hope this helps!
Edna has a great suggestion for rolling the fondant "snakes" out evenly using a stick as a guide. Check it out in her pearl-making tutorial:
