The Baroness' Birthday Cake

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Dummy Cake, Rosgar roller, Marvelous Molds (Right Prime Swirl, Left Prime Swirl, Right Prime Flourish, Left Prime Flourish, Swirl Centrepiece) candles, wired crystals. Aged with a mixture of Edable Art Dove Grey dust and Squires Bridal White Satin dust (mixed with vodka to create a paint). What are you most proud of? I liked how, by handpainting, I could 'age' the cake. I would, perhaps, next time 'age' less of the flat areas of the cake (and only paint the relief sections) What advice would you give someone starting this project? I bought the Rosgar Roller at Cake International, London. I have struggled to find it online since. It is an AMAZING embossing roller which gives you the angel relief pattern. Took a few practise runs, but very quick to use thereafter. You can the highlight, colour or antique as I did. Please see my other project 'square cherub' which was the practiserun for this cake and show a different coloured aging. Again, loving Chef Dominic's Marvelous Molds for the scroll. They are a little more expensive than many other molds but infinitely better, quicker and easier to use, and the results outshine other molds. I will be investing in more. Chef Dominic.... always happy to be a test guinnea pig for you, if you want any volunteers to try new molds??? ;o)

Wow! Love your cake!! You did such a great job - will have to look into the Chef Dominic molds as I have a horrible time finding decent molds where I live. Love your work! Lisa

They are good, Lisa. So quick to use and I love the cutting edge lip (if you buy some do watch the video tutorials for getting the most out of them).
