Cake sculpture and frida kahlo gd 10 2013

  1. 1. Grade 10 – Design a cake based on Frida Kahlo (her life, her looks, her surroundings etc.) You must draw/collage/photoshop all of the items you intend using on the cake before you start making the cake. All items must be annotated
  2. 2. Your focus should be the toppers of the cakes – not the sides of the tiers. (I want to get the baking & decoration of the sides done over two days – if possible) Look at the following sites for inspiration: http://cutesweetthings.wordpress.com/ 2013/07/15/star-wars-r2d2-cake-tutorial/ http://cutesweetthings.wordpress.com/ recipe-index/ http://pinterest.com/jmartin/edible-art/ http://www.eat-the-evidence.com/tutorials/ fondant-figure-modelling-101/
  3. 3. •  Fondant & rice crispy treat mixture •  Several toothpicks/kebab sticks •  A cutting board (the smoother the better) •  A sharp non-serrated knife •  paintbrush (size 3/0 to 5/0) •  Water in a small container •  A surface to build upon, a piece styrofoam/florist oasis (covered in cling wrap) •  Plastic Containers to store sculptures •  A sprinkle canister containing either powdered sugar. If you do not have a sprinkle canister you can use a spoon to scatter the sugar but it won’t be as evenly distributed. Fondant & all related equipment must be at school by Tuesday 6th August
