In the 4th picture, what did you use to support the head? What is that small circle?

Hi :)

....and the circle is a bit of a strong plastic tub lid I cut to size. I don't know how professional cake-makers would do it, but I've found this to work well if the plastic is strong enough.

How do you get such a smooth look to the Fondant :) Mine always want to wrinkle Love the CAKE by the way :)

Firstly...thankyou :)

....and yes, fondant seems to have a mind of it's own to wrinkle fold and crack! I think it's choosing the right fondant for you, getting it the right thickness, and have an idea on how you are going to try to put it on before you do it. With this, I rolled the icing out, and covered from the front to the back, so the join could not be seen. I smoothed it over with my hands, and then used a smoothing tool until I was happy. I was lucky with this one as it went on the first time, but I have had to take it off, scrape the butter icing off, roll it up, and start again :faint:

Thankyou very much indeed....that's a lovely thing
to say....:aww:
I can certainly agree that alot of love goes into
them, especially ones that I make for the kids.
I have an extra boost though now with the tremendous
support and encouragement from people like you on dA. It
certainly gives me that little bit more motivation to go
that extra mile...;)

..and I taught myself from books. I've made cakes for the kids ever since they were little, and when I'd learned the basics, started experimenting a bit more.

Perhaps there is some information on-line about courses or colleges local to you for the future?
Or if you are still at school, maybe you can ask one of the teacher. Do you have people like career advisors, or cooking instructors?

:giggle:....yes I do, I keep swapping the husbands shirt hangers over for plastic ones. I'll have to stock up on support rods when I can, as the plastic hangers are too flexable :lol:

Love it. Who does the structure for you?

:iconginas-cakes:
ginas-cakes Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I do it :) It sometimes takes longer than the cake. I rarely pre-plan, so the support rod is taken from a wooden coat hanger that had a plasic sleeve on it. I drilled into the cake board, and secured the rod.

Lol, well done. I am also bad at pre-planning. I have to get acquainted with my hubby's power tools

I wouldn't have even thought about it until watching Ace of Cakes. I thought I'd experiment with the kids cakes. This one went perfectly, and was really steady, but I still need some practice constructing to get it more stable :P
