I see that you made this all in one day, but I have two small children and will be making this cake at home while they’re in school, and then traveling with it out of town a day or two later. How far ahead can you make everything, and how would you store it while working on other pieces, or after it is finished until I get it to its destination? Thank you in advance!

My only question is did you tort and fill the basket part of the cake or just leave it as is? The pictures really didn’t show that part. Someone may have all ready asked but I am too excited to read through all the answers!! I can’t wait to make this for my mother! She has knitted sweaters for me and my children and also has knitted all the throws that are in my house! I can’t wait to see the look on her face when we present this cake to her!!!

The only thing that would dry out the most is the strings of “yarn” place randomly around. Good luck with the project and I would love to see your finished cake if possible :-)? Just send the photo to my email which you find under contact on the front page.

Much appreciated. I planning to make a similar cake on the evening before it get served (next day in the afternoon) and was just slightly worried the yarn might dry out. But it looks to me you didnt really experience that.
Thanks

Not sure what you mean with the fondant drying out?? The covered knitting basket was easier to paint when the fondant had dried a little. I stored the “yarn” in a air tight box while finishing the rest. and then palaced them all in the basket before losely decorating with strings of yarn. I think if you work intense it can be done within three hours. The most time consuming part is making the yarn.

Did you do everything with fondant (no gum paste?). If yes how long do you need to do it in advance that the fondant does not dry out?

I would properly just roll out the yarn strings by hand :-) I don’t think that this would take much more longer.

If you use a good pound cake and buttercream and keep the cake in a cool place it should be OK. Just make sure that the ingredients will not expire before after the cake have been eaten.

You are very talented! I have one little question about painting the cake. What does the alcohol do? Can we paint the cake just with the food color and not use the alcohol? Or is there anything else that we can use instead of alcohol? (Extracts have alcohol in them too so I am looking for a substitution that does not have any alcohol in it). Thank you.

But at all times I am a ready bought RF user. I use a great danish brand. For other brand have I heard good about following: Fondx and Satin Ice.

I made the microwave fondant for the first time with that cake I did, and it turned out great :D

My only concern is making the rolled fondant. I tried once and it reaaally did NOT turn out. Not sure what I did wrong. I’ll use your recipe and try again. Do you have any comments about store bought RF? Is there a great difference between store bought and homemade? Love your blog, thank you!

Love your site. Just wanted to show what I did with this gorgeous idea of yours (Never made fondant or fondant decorating before) Used your fondant recipe :) but because I didn’t have your wonderful tools I improvised a little
Here is a “end” picture of what I did:
