I've found a picture of a wedding cake I'd like to try and recreate parts of it.. Only thing is I'm not sure how to recreate the 2nd tier from the top. I'm struggling even to recognise the colour. I'd say gold but when I search for gold sprinkles, they are more bright, more yellow/orange. The picture looks like they are more metallic.
So I'm hoping some of you lovely bakers can give me some advice. Should I colour/paint the fondant before putting sprinkles on? Does anyone know what kind of sprinkles they are? Or what colour of sprinkles to look for?
Greatly appreciate any advice or suggestions you have :)
Thanks :) :)
I can’t tell you how that was done but one way to get there is to look up the “impression mat confetti already” on the evilcakegenius dot com web site — on that page it shows the links for metallic dusts/sprays — on that site you can also buy edible confetti and sequins if you wanna go that way —
i would post the link but I am on my phone —
also if you want to respond to this conversation please feel free to start a new thread because new members, like you, cannot “reply” to threads for a while
although the surface of the tier in the photo looks flakier than the mold would produce — hmm
Perhaps if we knew where the picture came from or who the cake artist credited for this lovely cake is, we could more easily come up with the information. Did the photo come from a certain magazine or site and was the cake artist named?
It wouldn't surprise me at all if that tier is a faux tier. I know that you can purchase faux glitter cake tiers on etsy.
But if you want edible, Global Sugar Arts (I am sure as many other cake/bakery sites) sells edible cake flakes that would probably give you a similar look.
oh I got it! a way to make it exactly!! get or make some thin edible sequins, dry them and take them for a whirl in the food processor -- use some of that debris
I hesitate to mention this but if you post a picture from a publication, another site or someone's personal photos there could be copyright infringements or sometimes angry cake decorators threatening this site's owners. Some people are fine if you credit them or the publication whilst others are not. If you know where this came from it is probably safest to credit that artist/site/publication.
I don't know how things are recently but in the past there were some nasty shootouts at the "Oh Cake Corral" over this so it may be wise to play it safe for everyone's sake.
I agree - it may be a dummy layer and I also like -K8memphis' suggestion.
