Project Description

Do you sell this cake? Yes Name of website or online shop See my work on Facebook at Deer Creek Bakery Link to website or online shop Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Fondant, gel food colors What are you most proud of? The free hand flowers What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have your transfer patterns the exact size and the look you want long before you bake the cakes. Start early and plan to stay up late. Let the fondant set at least 8 hours before doing pencil transfer. For best results don't use corn starch or powdered sugar on the outside of the fondant when applying fondant to the cake, as the pencil marks won't transfer as well.

What you will need

  • Fondant
  • gel food colors
