hi! was wondering if you could email me the template you used for this cake? thanks!


Hi there Mel,
I'm afraid I don't have the template, I tend to make each pattern according to the size of the cake I am making. I did a search on the type of plane I wanted to make and then used a line drawing as a guide, making it shorter and fatter so that it had a cartoon look to it and so that it fitted into the length of cake I had made. You only need to get a rough sketch and basic outline together, it is more in the carving and trimming of the cake that makes the finished effect work. Go on have a go, you might surprise yourself. Happy Baking and good luck with your cake.

Hi Hannah, I always chill the cake with the buttercream on before putting the fondant on, it helps the fondant sit better.. If you think about it the unchilled buttercream is more likely to bulge and slip around and loose it's shape, whereas if you chill it, then you have a firm base for the fondant to sit on, a bit like marzipan on a fruit cake. Then you can work on the buttercream to get a good smooth finish and it will give you enough working time before it softens to get the fondant in place.

I hope this helps .... good luck with your cakes

Hello,

I was just wondering why you chill the buttercream before you put the fondant icing on, does it go on smoother?
