Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Buttercream, airbrush, fondant What advice would you give someone starting this project? The decorations are all fondant with tylose, the melting snow effect is melted fondant (slightly cooled) and drizzled from a paper piping back. (easier to throw away than to waste a piping back). Once it all settled, I airbushed with pearl color to give it a nice shimmer. Hope you like it and thank you for looking.

Q&A with Gloria F.

CakeBakerMoney asked:
Fantastic. Another amazing cake. How did you get the melting show effect?
Gloria F. answered:
I used fondant and melted it with a little bit of water, just enough to get it almost water like but not too soft. Once I got the consistency I was looking for I put it in a rolled parchment paper and drizzled it around the cake. Once it all dried I airbrushed with sheer color for have that nice shimmery efect
Armand asked:
do you think it is icing?
Gloria F. answered:
You can use chocolate too if you like, it would work the same.
