These are really too cool to eat.
Those are very impressive. I've seen the "Happy Birthday Dion" cake before, when searching for Tardis cake pan molds. With all the licensed cake pans out there, they have yet to make one for Doctor Who. The one from the shop in Liverpool is amazing, but then it ought to be for 650 pounds! Do I get a discount if I take a pass on the bloody Absorbaloft? Time has not healed the wound caused by Love & Monsters. The horror.. the horror...
Enter: The Conquering Chicken
I love to eat such a cake.First time I have seen these cakes and I tought these cakes are really lovely and awesome.A finished cake is often enhanced by covering it with icing, or frosting, and toppings such as sprinkles, which are also known as
"jimmies" in certain parts of the United States and "hundreds and thousands" in
the United Kingdom. Frosting is usually made from powdered (icing) sugar,
sometimes a fat of some sort, milk or cream, and often flavorings such as vanilla extract or cocoa powder. Some decorators use a rolled fondant icing. Commercial bakeries tend
to use lard for the fat, and often whip the
lard to introduce air bubbles. This makes the icing light and spreadable. Home
bakers either use lard, butter, margarine or some combination
thereof. Sprinkles are small firm pieces of sugar and oils that are colored with
food coloring.When I was busy busy in 000-730 exam i often cook my favorite cake.In the
late 20th century, new cake decorating products became available to the public.
These include several specialized sprinkles and even methods to print pictures
and transfer the image onto a cake.
After looking at the cakes I can safely say that the cakes are first sculpted and the covered with a thin sheet of colored fondant. Fondant is a combination of powdered suger (confectioner's sugar), corn syrup (clear or white), coloring and flavoring. It can be rolled out into a sheet and then molded around the scupture to give it the color and texture you need. You can also mold it like clay and then apply it to the cake as a decoration.
When it cones to cakes like these, fondant is about the only way to go. However you do need a large work surface to do it - and the ability to mix your colors like an artist.
