Hi. Newbie here
I have bought a guitar shaped cake mould.
My question is, will I be able to ice/cover this without losing the relief pattern?
Thanks in advance
while the picture unfortunately does not come through — the relief will not come through the icing — unless you glaze the cake by pouring it over — guitars are brown after all — some peeps use the star method where you can follow the relief by piping individual stars —
another method is to place parchment over the upturned pan and rub a pencil over the relief and cut out the various parts so that after you ice it you still have a roadmap and pattern to follow — I would suggest you use a regular buttercream icing either from the store or that you make — not a meringue or cooked icing —
there is some kind of new member delay on being able to "reply" to posts so please start a new thread to continue any discussion -- at some point all of a sudden you will be enabled to "reply" but not for a while -- maybe like 30 days — I think it might have to do with time and activity levels -- please start a new thread if you want/need to —
best to you
