I would like to make a special cake for a friend who is going into the Marines. I would like to do a 3D Marine Boot cake, but not sure how to begin. I took pictures of a real Marine boot. Any suggestions?
I remebered someone asking a similar question, try http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yi0QaATf5_o it shows you how to carve a boot
Thank you! Great video. I wish it would have included decorating the boot with the fondant. Any suggestions where to get a pattern/template for the fondant pieces? Thank you.
I think you will have to make your own. I would wait until I had covered the cake with fondant (if you are not very experienced let it dry overnight too) and then do a rough shape on paper. Maybe use modelling paste or flower paste for the ‘decoration’ as it has a bit of stretch to it . Thus you could cut a piece of paste to shape and lay it where you want it to go. If it’s too big/not right remove and trim. Fondant may not like too much handling without breaking (depending on how experienced you are). Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.
Thank you so much for your suggestions/tips. You have been very helpful!
Questions, issues or concerns? I'd love to help you!
