I am a hobby baker (I guess that's what you'd call it, having just finished the basic class yesterday). I am going to make an Elvis cake for my neighbor. I have silhouettes of Elvis's head, and black sugar paper. I thought about doing a cascade of music notes.
I am probably going to use a square 10 x 3 if I can find the pan, and will run to the decorating shop this weekend. On top of the square pan, I'll use either and 8 x 3 or 7 x 3. I own an 8 x 2, and 6 x 2 so maybe I should go for a 10 x 2 instead. Whichever. On the cake, I am thinking of smaller music notes, cascading from a sugar paper 45rpm with Happy Birthday printed where the A side label is, on a blue royal icing record label.
It will be done in white BC and I'll have to buy real clear vanilla, and undyed butter, or white spray by Wilton's. I like the fondant ball boarders, but might put black BC dots around the boarder. How is a good way to do the small music notes? Can sugar paper use a scrap book punch of music notes, or should i use fondant and cookie cutters? I had an idea of 3 d music notes, coming out of the cake, and down to the last layer...me and my ideas.....
I would just pipe them.
First Immpressions has molds for music notes (not sure if you have time to order)
Nice molds, and nice cakes. heck, I'd order the mold, and use it for other things.
I love Topsy turvy cakes. I intend to get the pans for that. Are they by Fat Daddio's?
I used the petal craft pans to get my topsy turvy. I hate carving.
If I get my baking license, I'm getting new pans. Infact I'll get them before then.
