Q&A with azrael

Joshua John Russell asked:
Wow! I love that movie and this cake!!!! It's so cool!
azrael answered:
Er thank you!!! it means a lot to receive your praise, but I wouldn't have made it if it wasn't for watching your class. I hope you don't mind me asking but at what point did you feel confident enough with your cakes that you felt you could sell them ?
Bakir asked:
How did you get that dark metallic color????? amazing!
azrael answered:
Hello, thanks for the compliment. The cake was actually iced in white fondant but covering a cake this size in ready mixed black fondant was just going to be too expensive so I airbrushed it in undiluted edible back food colouring first. That was followed by a fine coat of metallic silver diluted with vodka. I then removed some of the coloured areas with a damp cloth which exposed some of the white icing and then dry brushed dark green and metallic silver powder colour to add the highlights. The whole cake was then given a coat of edible varnish to give it the sheen and bring out the colours. I hope that all makes sense :)
