AI'm relatively new at this, but I wanted to make a ferrari themed cake for a good friend of mines. Nothing too fancy, but I did want to but the ferrari shield logo on it. I've seen pictures of it done online, but don't know how they did it. Can anyone help[IMG]http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Jtq-b2k3Dfw/TJA_w8rgBqI/AAAAAAAAAZM/w3mJHblX4p8/s1600/Ferrari+Cake+b.jpg[/IMG]
That's actually my cake =). To make logos, I print out the image on regular paper in the size I need and use it as a template to trace over the fondant. Roll out the fondant to the thickness you want, dust some corn starch on it and lay the paper template over it. Use a scoring tool or something pointed, trace out the design, remove the paper template, then cut out the design using a sharp exacto knife. There is more info on my blog: http://sugarsweetcakesandtreats.com/2010/06/making-fondant-cutouts-kai-lan-and-friends.html
AHaha! That's awesome! I love this cake. I'll try my best with that technique. Like I said I'm just starting to decorate. I'll definitely check the blog site. Thanks for the help!
