Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake:
Chocolate fudge cake, ganache, fondant, polystyrene dummy, brown sugar, lustre dust, gel paste, boiled sweets, chocolate coins
ah this looks fantastic !! so clean and precise , is the dummy the top part and if so where did you order it from in that shape as all I can find is the box standard shapes
Thank you. The dummy is the lid. I used two 6 inch round dummies which I cut in half and stuck together to achieve the domed lid shape.. Hope this helps.
Hi, this cake is so good! I've been asked to create a treasure chest for next week, but am very nervous as I've only decorated a few cakes. Should I make the gold fondant strips in advance so they are firm to apply or are they made and applied immediately?
Thank you mommmmaddog. I painted after they were applied. For the gold strips I coloured fondant with a yellowish orangy colour with gel paste. (It doesn't really matter about the colour as it will be covered with the gold. I thought having the base colour would improve the gold). I textured the strips, then applied them using a little water and then used gold lustre with vodla to paint. Hope this helps, good luck with your cakes.
