Bass Cake

Daily Top 3 - May 22, 2012

8" vanilla cake with buttercream icing and topped with a fondant bass and cattails, RKT log (covered in fondant), and super amazing “water splash”!

It’s the first time I ever tried any sugar work—this was just hard crack stage poured over ice. SUPER COOL! I’m still amazed at how neat it looks! :)

Thank you for the sweet comments!
To make the water stuff, I used an old hard candy recipe:

Equal parts sugar and Light Corn Syrup in a heavy saucepan
Heat to hard crack stage—around 305 degrees

^^That was the recipe—I then poured the sugar mix over a bowl full of ice, waited just a little bit and gently dumped the contents out—some ice was “stuck” in the sugar, so I just ran some cool water over it until it melted enough to get it out. This was the first time I ever did this and it turned out great!
I tried to look up a good tutorial, but most of them used isomalt or mixed royal icing in the sugar mix. The recipe used what I had on hand—-and it turned out super cool!
Thank you again for all the sweet comments!
