I have a request for a wedding cake decorated in the traditional Hungarian style. I am at a loss as to how to go about this. I will post a couple pictures of what she showed me. Thanks in advance for and suggestions.
Sorry, I can't figure out how to insert the photos from my phone.
The second icon from the far right in the editor bar is the icon to insert a pic. Click on browse to find the image on your computer.
Her is my Meat Cake: Meat loaf, Mashed potatoes as frosting and mashed potatoes dyed blue for trim. Ketchup filling.
It came in 3rd at the party?

That meat loaf cake is AWESOME!!!!! I MUST make one. did you serve it warm or cold?
I guess we just hijacked the thread didn't we? I apologize to Sheilabelle.
Cold is better, the mashed potatoes stay where you put them and it is easier to slice. Just don't make the meatloaf so firm that it is difficult to slice, add extra bread crumbs.
It is a winner at a wedding because a lot of men don't really like all the sweet stuff.
I guess this can be done Hungarian style if you add a lot of onions and paprika...
I could not stop laughing as it came together...

Incredible edible..... It definitely looks Hungarian though.
I like the fringe that makes it look like a table cloth bu I have no suggestions on how to begin with this one. I can say that when I was on vacation (California?) that I did go to a Hungarian bakery. Maybe I should have looked closer at the cakes. ):
The edge on the upper 2 tiers is probably fondant formed in a mold OR you could get a piece of ribbon/lace and hand cut it w/an exacto knife. The flower design looks to me to be hand painted. Google pictures of wallpaper, etc to come up with something you can trace onto the cake then paint using food coloring. OR maybe find a stencil. For the top bow - just loops of fondant &/or gumpaste. And the beading on the middle tier could just be piped b'cream or roll fondant balls. The 2 red seperators - simplely cover styrofoam w/fondant and paint (much easier to do it that way than try to color fondant that deep a red color!) Anyway, that's how I would work th is order.
I wonder if the leaves and flowers are photo printed.
Emerogork - you mean on edible wafer paper? It's possible but I don't think so - there is no tel-tale signs on paper in the pic. It might be a possiblilty to consider though.
In a time when we can print 3d candy/cookies, I wonder if a printer can apply color directly to the fondant.
