Thanks a lot for this tutorial :) It will be usefull for me this week. Can I ask you about the details of the doll like sashi and flowers on kimono? Did you paint it, or it was made from marzipan as well?
I wish to be as skilled as you...Thanks for an answer :)

Your very welcome :)

...The flowers are made from fondant/icing rolled out quite thin. When they had dried, I used some food colouring to shade them. The stem and leaves are just piped on.

If there is anything else you would like to know...just ask :)

I am so envious :)Today I baked some cake in cups - because I am gonna do just some small statues on top of a cake - geisha and samurai. I am afraid it wonīt be any good -it is my first time to do something like it.
And it is quite hard to find some fondant to cover the statue - last time I used marzipan - but it crumbles, so I have to use something else

Yes...I can see it could be difficult, especially if you haven't made something like that before.

I don't use marzipan to make figures, so I don't really know what it's like to use.
I've never made my own fondant icing, but have you got time to try? I can try to find some recipes for you. :)

It it is possible, I would like to try it at home. Not sure when but I will give it a try :)
If I donīt bother you with it- can you look for some recipes?...Thanks :) I am still fighting with my statues at home

I just had a quick check and the link I sent is from someone I talk to on dA. It's a marshmallow fondant, and I've heard it is not too difficult to make.

[link]

Making propper fondant seems to be quite complicated, which is why I probably haven't tried. I'm lucky that most of the shops sell it her in the UK.

I'll keep a look out for other recipes for you.

Hope your statues work out :)

It's been a long hard road to stage I've got to now, so don't be too hard on yourself.
I've gone through some horrible looking cakes in the past and used to say I'd
never do it again. It's really down to practice and patience, so don't lose heart.
I'm sure who it's for will like it and know you have put alot of effort into it.....:)

...and it is made from a twisted wire frame. I used dried icing petals to make the blossom.

What do you do with the big cake crumbs/shavings if there are any? I probably would get fat off of them... The cake looks delicious by the way :)

I sometimes put them in little dessert dishes and poor jelly over them, and let them set in the fridge.

...and thankyou :)

Thankyou very much!!...and I hope the step-by-steps help. I initially put them up to hopefully
answer peoples questions on how it's structured.......that and also had people saying that they
thought they were clay :)
Family Birthdays are the best way to practice...thankfully with 5 kids, I got plenty!
