A music cake.
**And the letters of the name are even and flush with that black base……not at all raised. Directions on how to do so are down below.**
Do you want one of your own?
It might not fit exactly what you need…..but the methods I used can be used for any cake theme you make.
The first thing I did was to cover the cake board with fondant. Then I cut out her name and placed it down flat on the edge of the board with another color.
Make sure you use a board big enough to allow room for the letter. My board with 5 inches bigger than the cake.
Ex: My cake was 10 inches and the board was 15 inches.
You are going to need two cake boards tapped together, fondant that matches the color scheme of your cake, and some buttercream.
Spread some buttercream on the cake board.
After your cake board is covered with fondant, move on to covering your bottom layer of cake with pink fondant. Normally (like shown here), I cover my cake with the fondant and smooth it to the cake and then cut the extra fondant off the bottom……….all while it’s right on the board.
All flush and smooth with the board.
I have shown how to put stars on sticks back in this post. These are very similar.
But I wanted my numbers to have 2 colors.
I colored gumpaste the same pink and black as the fondant on the cake. Then I cut the number ’15’ out in pink and set it aside to dry.
Next, I placed the pink on the black by attaching them with water.
Then I set the numbers aside to dry over night.
The next day, I attached sucker sticks on the back of the numbers with melted chocolate and let the chocolate harden.
Here I am with my niece. Isn’t she the cutest?!
Maybe you want to add a covered cake board to your next cake………or maybe even piped music notes.
I hope these ideas will help with a creation of your own.
