|Here are some details about my project:|
|Material||Gum Paste, Other, Fondant, Buttercream|
Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Butter cake, butter cream frosting, butter cream and custard filling. Pea Pod Baby, trellis leaves and teddy bear made with homemade gum paste. Made a gumpaste plat form to support Pea Pod Baby to keep her clean from butter cream frosting. Used pearl and sparkle dust over areas of Pea pod baby, baby blanket, teddy bear and leaves,colored sprinkles and butter cream grass. Used eatable color pencil for details.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? After making the base, allow to crust but not completely dry on wax paper over Styrofoam so she moves off easily-- dry enough only to support Pea Pod Baby; to dry and the base will crack. Use a strong tooth pick to support Pea Pod Baby body. Make your trellis steams and insert for pre-holes, but remove to add baby blanket, other decorations and dusting, and re-insert trellis last stage - I had to re coil trellis again before final stage - they will sag.
