How To Design A Two-Tier Fondant Cake By Jay

Mum's Birthday Cake
 My sister is the cake expert. The cake was made on saturday for the mum's birthday. So, all credits go to her. She really wanted to teach the WC family on how she arrived at the design. My own work
was to just do assistant designer; you know, logistics and all the underground and 'engineering' work :-)

Please feel free to ask any questions.

Step 1:
Cover the two cakes with fondant.

Step 2:
Rub a little butter cream icing in the middle of the bottom layer to enable the top layer stick to it.

Step 3:
Place top layer on the bottom layer (try to place it in the middle).

Step 4:
Insert a dowel rod in d middle of the cakes (let this dowel rod pass through both cakes). The rod is used to stabilize the cake.
N.B: The dowel rod should be at least an inch shorter than the height of the cake.
Step 5: Cover your cake board with fondant and put any design of your choice.
Step 6: Design the cake however you want, mold flowers, bows, various shapes anyhow you like it. Here, I used bows.

Enjoy experimenting!

  7. ol

    pls i love ur cake bt my fondant always tear wat can i do

    1. Hello. According to the 'expert', u probably always roll it to be too thin. Next time, let it be a bit thicker. Also, knead the fondant well with your hand to make it more 'pliable' and sprinkle corn starch on your work table when rolling the fondant. That should help. Please check my blog to see how much I rolled the fondant (the thickness) for this cake and compare with yours.

  8. Yayyy!!! I love cake! Nice one Jay, my sister...abi whush one I be? ur evil twin? hahahah...dnt mind me jare...

    @ Funmmy, u probably dis not get the mixture right. Try adding CMC or gum tragacnth.

    1. LooooL. All join o. Thanks my lovely sister/twin/clone (since they said we are the same person).

      Yes o@Funmmyray, as Ahdaisy said, also check your CMC too. Make sure the quantity is right.

  9. Lovely cake
