Hi there!!! Here is the tutorial for this simple but elegant Vintage cake.
- Gold Paint
- Bronze Dust
- Old Gold Dust
- Delphinium Blue food coloring
- Silicone Mold
- Fondant extruder (optional)
- Small lollipop stick (4 inch long)
- Vintage(ish) looking pedestal
This cake is very simple and easy, and it will be a great glamorous piece in any occasion. The idea of this technique is that cake doesn’t have to look perfect so the ribbon and the bow don’t have to look completely straight.The central piece is the broach and we are goint to work a little bit more in this piece.
To start cover the cake with white fondant trim the edges and place it in the pedestal.
Use Gum-Paste because we want this piece to dry fast and with good detail.
Let the piece dry for 45 minutes.
Meanwhile tint the remaining fondant in light delphinium blue (or any color you want) but try to look for a faded vintage color. Roll out the fondant and cut a strip as long as the diameter of the cake and as wide as the cake (For a big broach) or if you prefer little less wide than the cake. Attach the strip around the cake side
Using a fondant extruder make 2 long logs in round shape in the blue fondant; the logs should be long like the cake diameter. Once you have the logs attach them to each of the top and bottom border of the delphinium blue stripe. This is to mimic the edges of a ribbon so they have to be thin!
Paint the broach with the gold paint, al least 3 layers of paint and wait in between layers 4 minutes or so. After that dust the piece with abundant gold dust. Following dust the crevasses of the piece with abundant bronze dust and finish with a layer of gold dust.
Lets finish the bow
Roll out the remaining blue fondant and cut out 2 rectangles. (same wide as the ribbon attached to the cake).
Fold one corner and repeat with the other (use brush and water to attach the corners to the center)
Use a knife or x-acto to cut the tails
Attach the tails to the front of the cake or where you want them, attach the edge details.
Now serve , enjoy and be the envy of your friends!!!!
