Welcome to the Cake Decorators Q&A
Wings angel cake
I’m really messed up with my wings topper. It’s ended up really heavy (700g each wing) and bigger dimension (12”x7”) for 9”x7”cake. Now I’m not sure if I can safe it. It feels so fragile to stand as topper. My question are:
1. I made a thick template from fondant but it cracked as I moved it so I put another cardboard layer to safe it, but it’s still not feel sturdy. Can I add more support for this wing to safely stand as a topper as it’s already heavy and what kind of support that I should make?
2. How I assembly the toppers without rip the cake?
3. If there is no way for no 1 and 2, then, should I make bigger cake or two cake for each topper? Or make the topper laying instead of standing?
4. Or should I just get rid of this wings and make smaller one? So frustrating!??
It’s for a customer but a friend of mine, and it’s for Wednesday. Please kindly advise me. Thank you in advance. x
Hello Nyoman Maria Shinta Dewi
Please could you say which tutorial you are referring to . If it is the Snowflake fairy, the wings on are made on wire with wafer paper and not on a fondant template.
The wings are very light. I can't see any other tutorial with wings except for the Barbie fairy. If you could set the link for the tutorial it would be a great help to sort out your problem. 🙂
It wasn’t from tutorials. I made it for my customer and I got stuck. I tried to watch the tutorials that will able to help me. I found the Harry Potter owl (the wings), but i did everything wrong. Fortunately the customer is fine with the wings laying down flat, I’m so relieved. Next time I’ll watching the tutorials before I start the new project. Thank you for your help. x
At least you tried and your friend was pleased with your effort. Well done for having a go! As you look through all the tutorials you'll find many different techniques which will add to your experience. This was a first trial, next time you'll be so much better x
