The vintage icecream van :o) What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used cocoa butter and dust colours rather than pastes as I find them easier to work with and give a stronger colour for this stylized cake. As per this course, do lots of research, roughly plan out your buildings/rides/stalls and make more than you think you need.

lissetteg0 asked:
What did you use as a base to paint on, fondant, gumpaste? Beautiful work as always!
CakeBakerMoney answered:
Easy peasy! He's how I did it. I sketched or printed out photos of fairground elements onto paper and then cut these our. I rolled out panels of 50/50 (gumpaste would be fine too) and placed each template in turn on them. I then cut around the template with an exacto knife. If you work quickly you can paint on the panels when they're flat and then wrap them around. If you need a bit more time then lay them over the curved edge of a cake dummy and paint them then. I need to write a tutorial as I am sure pictures are easier to understand than word. Email me if you need more info samantha@bitemebakery.co.uk
