I worked on a cake last week for my sweet niece Rayann. Mommy said that she requested Simba and Nala. So, I found out whether or not it was baby Simba and Nala or adult Simba and Nala and went to town. The first thing I did was print out a picture of Simba and Nala. I then laid a piece of wax paper over the top and traced the image with a permanent marker. I put the original print out under another piece of wax paper. I then just took my traced image and placed it over rolled fondant, and cut out each section. I took the sections and placed them on top of my printed image so that I knew I had the placement right. I started with the small things like the eyes and ears. Then, I place the body over those in sections. I place the complete fondant image in the fridge to harden.
I had my cake in the freezer. So, I got that out and did a crumb coat and a regular coat. After it had the icing on, I placed the image directly from the fridge onto my cake. I then drew in the details with a food color/vanilla mixture.
