Golden pineapples

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake The pineapples were made from RKTs shaped into domes, covered with modelling chocolate and then a layer of fondant. The leaves were made from gumpaste and the 'skin' was made using a silicon mold I made of a section of skin from a real pineapple. The lot was oversprayed with Wilton gold spray (which is really a bit lighter than I expected). It's a bit of a strange design, but the client didn't want anything else except choc buttercream, the words and the pineapple tops!

Wow! Really sharp buttercream edges!

Thank you!! It felt like it took forever to get them haha I might have been a bit OCD - I remember wishing at the time that the client would've accepted fondant! =P
