I am would like to make headphones out of cake or place them on a cake for my stepson's 14th birthday. But I have no clue how to start. I've seen one tutorial but it's not a whole lot of detail. Help please
AI made gumpaste headphones (like a receptionist's headset) for a cake. I dried a 1/2 inch wide piece gumpaste (for the over the head piece, whatever that's called) over a cake dummy for 3-4 days, then attached it with RI to the ear pieces, and I also made a microphone part which I attachéd with RI.
If you give yourself plenty of time (and maybe make extra, I was lucky nothing broke, but they are pretty fragile) the gumpaste pieces will dry very hard. My headset was standing up on the cake and had to be driven 15km for delivery, and it held up fine.
AA possible solution may be to use small ball shape or the small Wilton Wonder Mold pan. Make the the other parts of the headphone with fondant or gum-paste. I hope this helps.
AAs a cake topper, i'd make the head set out of RKT :)
