Grape Cocoabutter Sampler

Project Description

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I wanted to test different colored cocoa butter techniques and cake decorating. Top tier: White fondant has hand-painted grapes (with deliberate brush stroke texture) and a suede-finish airbrushed burgundy base. Bottom tier: White fondant hand-painted with slightly cooled cocoa butter for a brushed texture finish. Trim: Gelatin trim mold antiqued with brown cocoa butter and airbrushed with gold luster. Accent: Gelatin lace with gum paste and plain dragees molded from my mother-in-law's antique costume jewelry pin. What are you most proud of? It's always a lot of fun to see the results from playing around with unconventional techniques.... What advice would you give someone starting this project? Play! Make mistakes! Have fun......
