FAILSAFE (or close) Decorated Cakes — Home-made decorated cakes, with low salicylate, amine and glutamate, and no bad additives.

Rollerskate by frillypants


My second daughter turned 10 this weekend and we went rollerskating for her party.  With nothing else to inspire me,  I went with a rollerskate as the decoration this year.  I found the image I wanted to use,  which I’d got just by googling ‘rollerskate template’, but I had no idea until I had the cake ready,  how to actually go about it.  In the end, I cut out the roller-skate shape and used the stencil that had created!  I just put that stencil on the cake and sprinkled on a thick layer of 100s and 1000s. (Dollar brand with no bad additives,  but still has some salicylates.)  Then I used a piping bag to create the detail with Cocoa Butter cream.  Could be carob, of course.  The wheels and eyelets I piped onto some baking paper and then refrigerated.  They’re still soft, but easier to handle to get into position without melting too quickly.
