Fondant and Gumpaste
What was your inspiration?
When I heard she wanted a "groovy girl" cake... AND her party was at a roller skating rink.... it was a no brainer! This particular birthday girl has an allergy to red food coloring, so the color combination was perfect for this spunky birthday girl.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of the skate... it's actually two flat pieces of gumpaste situated in a sort of triangle... the effect is really nice and a lot less bulky than re-creating a complete 3-D skate.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Give yourself plenty of time (days!) to make the skate... Let each component dry thoroughly before assembling the skate....
