Antique Cradle Cake

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake The cradle is made of a 50/50 modeling chocolate/gumpaste mix. I think I actually over mixed my MC, but it seemed to work once I mixed it with the GP. The owl is MC/fondant. I used Wilton's Baroque mold for the gold cradle details. The cradle slats were glued to the mattress and to each other using Royal Icing. I used this Craftsy Cclass and a YouTube tutorial by McGreevy Cakes. What are you most proud of? The fact that it stayed together!! And the shower guests had no idea it was a cake.

What you will need

  • Buttercream
  • Fondant
  • Gum Paste
  • Modeling Chocolate
  • Royal Icing
