I’m so stuck. I’m making a gizmo cake! So he has big ears. But whenever I make big ears they always break on the cake.
I made them days ago. I put a wooden dowel on the back and secured with more icing. But the minute I put them into cake the weight causes them to break?
ive watched videos and that’s how they do it and they don’t break for them!!!
I’m feeling cross with myself!!!!
Whenever I make something this big, I secure some light cardboard in between the fondant for support. I would probably use minimum of 2 wooden skewers to attach and hold the weight. And icing isn’t strong enough to secure to the cake. I use either melted chocolate or medium-stiff royal icing. Once either of those dry, they are hard as rock. Nothing moves. Hope this helps.
I would use gum paste or pastillage instead of fondant. Either one is much stronger. Like June said, I would use two long skewers and would anchor them inside the gum paste, in the fashion of the wire in a flower petal.
You could also use modeling chocolate, using the skewers in the same fashion.
