"chalkboard" cake

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I fell in love with the chalkboard cake when I saw it online for the first time. So smart and creative! At that time I was learning to make the sugar berries bouquet by Maggie Austin. My friend's birthday was around the corner so I thought maybe it would turn out great to combine these two elements. Chalkboard cake and sugar berries bouquet. Voila indeed!

What you will need

  • Chocolate
  • Fondant
  • Gum Paste

Q&A with Liswij

Lola Marti Cake asked:
Love itttt. Can you tell me were i can found a chalk boar cake tutoriall
Liswij answered:
Thanks Lola.It is quite simple. I used black fondant to cover the cake and white chocolate to write on it. I melted the white choco, filled it into straws with a piping bag.Once it sets I carefully slit through the straws and I got the "chalk". I also tried writing with the corner of choco square as it is sharp enough to use. I duse the cake with cornstarch to accentuate the effect. Hope this helps! You can also find it online simply googling for chalkboard cake. Have fun!
