Civil War Union Kepi

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Marble Cake, Icing and fondant What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the realistic look of the folds of the kepi in the back! Despite it's being a larger version of the kepi, it is realistic looking enough that reenactors were impressed by it! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would say be careful how you carve, I spent a lot of time, chilling the cake so that it would not melt and used more time than i would expect a 'professional' would have trying to get the cake to not 'fall'!
