Simple Number Cake Toppers And Name Plaques

I’d love to show you how I create my number cake toppers as well as name plaques.  They are very simple to make and will definitely make your cake super special.  I ususlly make these decorations with modeling chocolate as it tastes a lot better than fondant.  You can make modeling chocolate with either real or compound chocolate in any amount you want as long as you follow the ratios.  If I have plenty of time, I would bake some cookies then lay my modeling chocolate on top…so yummy!

今天EC分享的是蛋糕數字插牌和名牌的製作過程,這些裝飾不但做法非常簡單,而且可令蛋糕更加個人化。EC喜歡用塑形朱古力做蛋糕裝飾品,因為它的味道比翻糖好。無論是真朱古力還是合成朱古力(如免調温朱古力片)均可做成塑形朱古力,只要按照份量比例,做多做少亦沒有問題 。如果時間充裕,EC甚至會先用牛油曲奇做成插牌的底部才鋪上塑形型朱古力,這樣的組合是最美味了!

Directions  做法

For the number toppers 數字插牌

Roll out modeling chocolate really thick (I place a pair of chopsticks under my rolling pin as a guide).  Cut out the number(s) with number cookie cutters.  If you don’t have any cutters you can always print from an online template , cut out the number, place that piece of paper on top of the modeling chocolate then cut around it with a sharp knife.
將塑形朱古力壓至如筷子般厚(可用一雙筷子“朗”起擀麵棍),用數字曲奇模印出數字。沒有印模可在網上搜尋數字圖案,印在紙上剪出圖案,再將圖案放在塑形朱古力上用小刀沿圖案邊緣切出。

In a paint palette plate, mix pearl dust (I use white) with lemon extract to form a paste.  Paint mixture onto numbers with a paintbrush.  Let dry.
水彩碟內倒入適量珍珠色粉(EC用白色),加入少許檸檬香油混合成顔料,用畫筆塗在數字上,待酒精揮發變乾。

Insert toothpicks from the bottom of the numbers.  For some tricky numbers that don’t have a flat bottom or straight side (like 7 and 9), you may need to use floral wire.  I wouldn’t recommend eating any decorations containing wires for safety’s sake.  Please wrap any protruding wire with floral tape.
將牙籤從數字底部插入,底部傾斜的數字如7和9或許要使用鐵線,因安全理由,含鐵線的裝飾最好不要食用,外露的鐵線亦最好裹上膠帶(floral tape)。

For the name plaques 名牌裝飾

Roll out modeling chocolate of contrasting colors to about 1/8 inch thick.  With a smaller circle and a bigger scalloped cutter, cut out shapes from each color then glue them together with melted chocolate.  Wait for 10 to 15 minutes until it firms up.
不同顏色的塑形朱古力用擀麵棍壓至1/8吋薄,用圓形及比圓形稍大的花邊形曲奇印模印出形狀,以溶朱古力將形狀黏合,待乾(約十至十五分鐘)。

Personalize the name plaque  (I couldn’t find my small paint brush so I wrote  with a toothpick dipped in diluted food coloring gel.  Then I poked some dots to form two lines with the tail of my toothpick).  Let dry.
用牙籤沾顏料在牌上寫上名字(EC以少量水稀釋食用色膏作顏料),再以牙籤尾部刺上兩行線作裝飾,待乾。

Glue a small piece of modeling chocolate on the back of the plaque so that it can stand on its own.  Done!
取一小塊塑形朱古力黏在名牌背後令其站立,完成!
