Hand Painted Rose Cake

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Erin's course - dumy cake. What are you most proud of? Happy with first attempt. Would try things a little differently next time. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Fantastic course - and it's free! What's stopping you?? I'm not sure whether gel/paste colours are different in the UK, but mine kept separating - it was like painting with chewing gum. 24 hours later it's still sticky! I had a quick go using dusts and alcohol and found this much easier.

CakeBakerMoney answered:
Really great class and unbelievably, its free!!! I was really intimidated by painting on cakes but feel ore confident now to have another go.
CatherineMason asked:
Regarding UK colours - you can add superwhite powder to get a more opaque, pastelly effect. For a thicker 'paint' mix colours into confectioners glaze.
CakeBakerMoney answered:
Ohh, thanks for the tip. So, does the superwhite change the congsistency of the paste colour? As i mentioned above, it felt like i was painting with chewing gum!
