How To Make Sugarcraft Elephants with Cake Decoration & Sugarcraft

Posted lunedì 10 aprile 2017   |   1786 views   |   Food & Drink   |   Comments (0) Taken from the February issue, sugarcraft superhero Lindy Smith of Lindy's Cakes made these amazing little elephants to adorn a Mandala cake. Here's how to make them!

You will need: 

·         Lindy's Cakes Small Asian Elephant Sugarcraft Cutter

·         Brown modelling paste (50g)

·         Pink modelling paste (50g)

·         Orange modelling paste (40g)

·         Blue modelling paste (15g)

·         Yellow modelling paste (15g)

·         White modelling paste (15g)

·         Violet food dust

·         A small paint brush

·         A cutting wheel

·         A Dresden tool

·         Stick embossers

 

 1.      Roll out the brown modelling paste and cut out six elephants. Smooth around the edges of each elephant using the warmth of a finger.

2.      Take a Dresden tool and make indents between the legs and the bellies. Add mouths, marks to the trunks, eyes and finally toes.

3.      Load a paintbrush with violet food dust and brush around the indents to help the elephants look more three dimensional.

4.      To create the elephant's robes, start by cutting out elephants from your choice of modelling pastes. Next, take a cutting wheel and cut out the required shapes by referring to the step photo.

5.      Emboss the edges of the shapes using the micro designs stick embossers, the set includes six different designs so mix and match and experiment to see what patterns you can create.

6.      Cut the next layer, again using the elephant cutter as a starting point. Adjust your cuts to fit and emboss as before. Layer up the pieces as shown and attach to your elephants ensuring that the robes go over the top cut edge of the backs and heads of your elephants.

7.      Cut six ears from brown modelling paste, using the elephant ear cutter. Stick in place as shown and add movement by adjusting the ear shapes with a finger.

8.      Add more decorative elements using piping tubes to cut out circles, the sugar shaper to create tassels and a craft knife to cut strips to hold the robes in place and to go around the feet. Add one decorated elephant centrally to each side panel on the hexagonal cake.
