Cake affair asked:
Great cake - sail boat, how did you make the waves so realistic?
Sally Ryan answered:
Using blue and white royal icing.. Then when fully dry lightly paint with cooking oil. Makes them look wet.
annieh2117 asked:
How did you make the sails? This cake is great!
Sally Ryan answered:
Take some fondant and mix in some CMC. rollit ot thin and cut out the size of the sail. Then the trick is to lye the fondant over a thin layer of foam over a piece of card that you have bent into the shape you want. put the holes in for the mast. Leave it there for at least three days to dry.
