#simitorchteam #maythetorchbewithyou #winterisomalt #isomaltcollaboration #LoveSatinIce #SatinIce Big thanks to Sidney Galpern of Simi Cakes & Confections for inviting me to participate for the second year running, in this Winter Isomalt theme.
“I chose the movie called “Kung Fu Panda Holiday” that was released on DVD in the USA in 2012. In this hilarious action adventure, Master Shifu calls on Po to host the year’s biggest event – the Winter Feast; a special time of the year to celebrate family, tradition and the awesomeness of Kung Fu! Po and the Furious Five must team up to throw the best celebration the Valley of Peace has ever seen. For my cake, I made a 6" 3-layer strawberry pound cake with a light peppermint buttercream filling. The cake was covered with Satin Ice fondant and the Snowman, Christmas tree, Gingerbread Boy and Santa Claus were made from Satin Ice fondant to look like tree ornaments in their shape. The base of my cake was decorated with crushed peppermint candy-cane candies and the rest of the decoration on the cake was done using Royal Icing. Only the ‘berries’ on the Holly leaves were red Grande Nonpareils. I melted clear Simi Isomalt that was then poured into a silicone ‘Karen Davies’ Bamboo mold to create the shoots and leaves. While the Isomalt was still malleable after a few short minutes, I removed that from the mold and shaped it to sit ontop of the cake. I used a heat gun to carefully attach the leaves on one curved side, then I let it harden. Finally, the character, Po, was made using Royal Icing, some bits of which were painted by hand. I attached Po to the top of the bamboo shoots by slightly melting two small areas on the Isomalt where his feet would connect. If Po can pull off the perfect party, impress his heroes AND discover the true meaning of the Winter Feast, Santa Claus will make an appearance to hand out Christmas gifts to everyone! Have YOU been good this year? ;)" Make sure you check out our collaboration https://www.facebook.com/simicollab/ to see how many ways you can use Isomalt :)
