Cake shaping advice? Answered
This year I've started trying to make more advanced cakes and was wondering how other people shape their cakes?
I know there's the basic way of cutting(for example into flat heart shapes and such) but for the more 3D detailed cakes what's the way to do it? Is it the same way?
I thought perhaps its possible to use a similar techinque that's used for some cake pops, where you mix in a semi sweet icing or thickener into cake to create a dough like texture for moulding but would that be to pastey and not cake like enough?
I really want to try shaped cakes but I haven't known how, so if anyone could help it would be very much appreciated!
