Hints & Tips

  • Always read the project sheet in full before starting your cake!
  • To make your own modelling paste, add a little tylo to your fondant.
  • Allow the modelling paste shapesto sit and firm up for a short timebefore attaching to the cake.
  • If the modelling paste is sticking to your tools or mat use the FMM Dab-a-Dust for dusting with either cornflour or icing sugar.

Bottom Tier

  • Roll out white modelling paste and cut out strips of pasteapproximately 1” thick. Using the ball tool ruffle 1 edge of the strip. Allow them to dry a little.
  • Wet the top section of the bottom tier with the water pen. Attach 2 rows of white ruffles.
  • Add a small amount of black modelling paste to the white modelling paste to make light grey modelling paste. Repeat process 1 and 2 above. Keep adding a small amount of black modelling paste each time you make another 2 rows of ruffles for the bottom tier. Each time the ruffles will be a little darker. This will create an ombre ruffle effect on the bottom tier of the cake.

Top Tier

  • Roll out grey modelling/flower paste and cut out You & Me curved word inscription. Dry completely on the side of a 5” round polystyrene dummy.
  • Measure around the outside of the top tier of the cake and divide by 4.
  • Place a cocktail stick a small way in the cake all the way round.
  • Knead a small amount of white fondant and place in the craft gun. Extrude the fondant from the gun through the disc with the circle cut out.
  • Drape the white fondant string over the cocktail sticks, allowing it to loop between to make the design on the top tier of the cake. Refer to photograph.
  • Roll out grey modelling paste, cut out strips of paste using the straight frill cutter. Refer to photograph for the shape of the frill. Attach with water.
  • Attach the dry You & Me curved word inscription to the top of the cake with water. Place a white paper lolly stick discreetly behind to give the words support if necessary.
  • Secure diamante chain around the bottom of the top and bottom cake tier.
