Do you cover with buttercream - stiff or medium?? Do you cover all sides, bottom, too OR do you you only cover the sides that will show?? If you cover the bottom, how do you handle it?? How long do you let it dry before covering with fondant??
I need to make 2 dice for a las vegas theme cake. How would I cut the fondant?? 6 squares?? or 1 long rectangle to wrap around 4 sides and then 2 squares?? Do i smooth out the seams with water?? will the seams completely disappear??
last, for the black dots, do i dare make black fondant or is it near impossible to obtain the black color.
Or should i apply the black dots with black buttercream after i place the dice on the cake??
THANKS SO MUCH for your Help!! The more detailed instructions the better!!! I am a Fondant Newbie!!
Your dice are basically like a square cake ... takes a bit of patience, but would use the same method for them.
If however, the bottom of your dice are going to be visible, you may have to cover first the bottom of the dice and then, cover from the top just as you would a square cake.
That's what I'd try. ^_^
Wishing you very good luck with your project. Be sure to post pictures. ^_^
Black candy dots are easily attached to your fondant. ^_^
i want to put 3 out 4 of the following on the cake - dice, a hand of cards, poker chips and/or gold coins (bought at walmart in party favor section). so i guess i want the dice to be about 2x2 or 3x3 appoximately. i don't want them to overpower the cake.
does that help?? thanks everyone!!!
