Hi, I am doing a Baby shower cake for a lady that wants the Eiffel tower and pink poodles! I have done neither!! I was looking for molds and was thinking i would do a poured sugar eiffel tower but can't find a 3d mold. I found candy molds that are only the one side, but I want it on the top any suggestions?? besides making my own mold, i have done that for other things and I'm not very good at it!! I can do it, but need a back up just in case! Also, any suggestions on making a poodle?? Thanks GUys!
No one?? I would imagine that it would be worth someonetimes to make one and ill buy it LOL
You could shape one out of RKT, cover in fondant/modeling chocolate, and pipe the details on. That would be a lot of work though! I bet someone will have a super idea, maybe even know where you can get a good mold!
Thanks Renaejrk that is my second choice. I am super surprised that no place sells one like MYOM, if it was two pieces i could pour sugar into each side wait, and just put them together, then it would even look like it was glass!! That would be perfect. I have used MYOM but im sooooooooooooo bad at it and everything i do with it just never works for me lol
I guess I am behind the times - MYOM? what is that?
Can you pipe well? how about royal icing frame work (pipe and overpipe several times, on acetate over a pattern of an Eiffel tower side) and then let dry for a week, and then assemble?
Or use a clay extruder to pipe out gumpaste in the same pattern, then assemble. I put together a wrought iron bed fram like this for one of my cakes.
IMO, that would give the tower a more airy feel, and you could airbrush it silver or grey even.
That's not a bad idea, I'm not a great piper but have done tiara's etc that turned out pretty good! I will try that and see how it works! Thanks
I used this template: http://www.papertoys.com/eiffel.htm
To make a gum paste Eiffel Tower: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1587926
I made the white framework in 12 sections (top, middle and bottom for each side). I also made 2 gum paste pieces to lay flat in between the bottom & middle, and the middle & top section. Those support pieces were squares of gum paste with the centers cut out, just wide enough so I would have a platform to glue each wall to. I made all of these a week in advance and let each piece dry for a bit but assembled each level while the gum paste was still malleable enough to bend the sections. I let each of the 3 levels dry for a week, then assembled the structure and added the black details. The black pieces are made using a clay extruder and was pretty tedious. The assembly & black details took several hours.
