I had a few questions and if anyone would offer some advice, I would really appreciate it.
My question is in working with the "frosting". I used silicone and piped it on between the layers and around the fruit toppings.
It was a little tricky because I can't bake the silicone so instead of making a glaze for the fruit from tls, I had to use sculpy glossy mixed with artist chalk. Can anyone think of a better way to accomplish this?
Also, I wanted to grate some chalk for "powdered sugar" and "cinnamon" on the top. Once again, I can't bake it so how do I adhere it to the topping?
I would appreciate any suggestions.
For the cakes, I textured them with a variety of items to get a shortcake look. I used crumpled aluminum foil, them a toothbrush and finally sandpaper.
The peaches were fun to make. I rolled the clay and flattened it on one side on my ceramic tile. Then I popped it in the freezer to firm up a bit. I dusted the top with grated artist chalk in the red color. Then I slices the length into peach slices. With a toothpick, I made a tiny indent in the peach were the "pit" would have been.
The strawberries were just a cane that I sliced.....easy.
