So for this topper I used styrofoam but you can use the same technique for a real cake with edible image. ;) I cut my styrofoam with a Hot wire using the template as my guide. https://www.facebook.com/verusca.walker#!/hotwirefoamfactory?fref=tsI use a sand block to smoothe my styrofoam and cream shortening to stick my fondant.And them I just cut the images from my template and glue it to the fondant with tylose glue. ;)It is easy quick and incredible effective.
For those who are interested I made a how-to of my crochet baby uggs. You can also find this tutorial on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SweetlakeCakes. The uggs: The template (the sole is 5,5 cm/2.2 inches): The materials: Cut the sole from a slice of fondant mixed with tylose of about 0.2 inch/0,5 cm thick, 2 times.. Turn for the second sole the template to so that you have a right and left sole: Make a fondant ball + tylose of 15 grams and form the ...
So …. I am back from Holiday down the coast of NSW. On my trip I visited a scrapbook shop call Amanda’s of Mogo. And I saw this beautiful Wood Florishes. Spotlight have them too and they are very cheap. ;) Around $3.00 each. Cool right ??? And they are perfect for making moulds and embossing. Fantastic!!!!!! Don’t forget you can use leftover fondant for make your moulds. ;)

The following video tutorial will show you how I did the “smocking effect” on fondant as shown on these two photos. Here’s the link to the tutorial:
We are not sure if anyone will need this tutorial, but we know we would have loved to have had one. After several disasterous cannoli filling attempts, we finally figured out the perfect blend.

Here is the recipe ingredients: 2 1/4 cups confectionary sugar6 tablespoons of cornstarch1 tablespoon of v...
Just a quick note (hopefully) with a few hints on how to create a seamless join when you want to have more than one colour of fondant covering your cake, with no overlaps. 1. Start by calculating the size fondant you need to cover the top half of the cake (in my case, the blue). I wanted the blue to come halfway down the sides of the cake so my fondant needed to be 7” (the top of the cake) + 2.25” (the cake was 4.5” high) x 2 (for each side) = 11.5” diameter. ...
Hopefully the photographs are self explanatory, any questions please ask!! :) xxx Hope you all like it . For more Tutorials visit my FB page please http://www.facebook.com/Tortova
