How to Make a Fondant Brooch

I have designed a princess themed cake for my friend’s daughter back in the middle of October. Here’s how I made the fondant brooch from scratch. This simple brooch can be made in any size you want. Make it ahead of time to allow enough drying time

EC十月中為朋友的女兒設計了一個以Belle公主為主題的蛋糕,以下是心口針裝飾做法,心口針做法十分簡單,可以預早幾天做好待乾,大小亦可自行決定。

Foam pad
Flower former
Silver and white pearl dust
Lemon extract or vodka

你需要~

翻糖(EC用棉花糖翻糖)
Tylose 或 gumpaste (可不加)
波浪印模
粟粉
小擀麵棍
矽膠墊
糖花軟墊
糖花塑型模 (flower former)
銀色及白色珍珠色粉

調色碟或小碗

竹籤或牙籤

Directions 做法

Knead fondant until pliable Use a 50/50 mixture of gumpaste and fondant or add a little bit of tylose powder to the fondant if you want the decoration to dry faster.
先搓軟翻糖,想翻糖裝飾快點乾透可混入gum paste (一比一份量),或少許tylose powder。

Dust the work surface with some cornstarch to prevent fondant from sticking Roll out fondant to a 1/16″ thickness and cut out a circle with the larger scallop cutter.
工作枱上洒上粟粉防沾,將翻糖壓至1/16寸薄,用大波浪印模印出圓形。

Place the circle on a foam pad. With a wooden skewer or a toothpick, ruffle the edges by running it along the edges.
將圓形翻糖放在軟墊上,用竹籤或牙籤來回滾動及滾壓邊緣做出波浪。

Paint the ruffled circle with silver pearl dust diluted in several drops of lemon extract or vodka. Leave it on a flower former to harden.
將幾滴檸檬香油或vodka與銀色珍珠色粉混合做成顏料,用畫筆塗在圓形翻糖上,放在糖花塑型模 (flower former)上定形。

Cut out another circle with the smaller scallop cutter. Repeat the ruffling process. Roll a small piece of fondant into a ball then attach it in the center of the small ruffled circle with some water. Paint it with white pearl dust diluted in several drops of lemon extract or vodka. Brush a small amount of water in the middle of the larger silver circle then attach the smaller white circle on top. Adhere silver dragees around the fondant ball with water. Let dry overnight.
用小波浪印模印出另一圓形,重複步驟做出波浪邊,取少量翻糖搓成小圓球,掃點水貼在圓形翻糖中央,將幾滴檸檬香油或vodka與白色珍珠色粉混合做成顏料後塗在圓形翻糖及圓球上,在銀色圓形翻糖中央掃點水,貼上白色圓形翻糖,用少量水將糖珠圍繞小圓球貼上,放過夜待乾。

心口針裝飾乾透後便可貼上蛋糕了!
