PROPOSAL CAKE! Gold drip cake tutorial (Teal & gold theme in 2020!)
hi all my honey bunches of oats this is Shawn of love meats

cake

this customer wanted to propose to his girlfriend using a

cake

oh how special so I decided to do a silhouette these all right so first we want to start with squeezing some butter cream onto the

cake

board so the Kay doesn't slide around and this flavor is a three layer yellow

cake

with raspberry filling so what I'm doing first is piping a buttercream dam around the border of the

cake

so that way when we put the filling in it doesn't squeeze out through the sides next I'm going to do a crumb coat and a crumb coat is a thin layer of icing that goes on the

cake

first and it's called a crumb coat because it's going to trap your crumbs in your icing so when you do your final coating you don't have any crumbs in that final coating so always do that crumb coat first and then we'll put it in the frigerator to chill all right so I have my crumb coat on next I'm just going to clean up the border of the

cake

by taking my bench scraper with a napkin and then just going around the sides all right so that's going to be in the refrigerator for a few minutes next I'm going to do some fun at work so I want to go ahead and roll out my Silhouette and then what I'm gonna do is need in some gum arabic into the fondant to make it a little bit more firm so that way it's easier to cut out the shapes and by the way you can use gum arabic for tylose powder or CMC powder all of those...

will actually work in order to firm up your fondant once we have our fondant rolled out I'm going to go ahead and cut out the shape I'm gonna it's easier to lift up the fondant first and then lift up the cutter and next what I'm doing here whenever you cut out shapes with fondant there's a little bit of grilli's on the perimeter of the shape that you cut out so I usually take my fingers and then just rub those frillies and so that way you have smooth edges this is we're doing our network and take a long time and sometimes you might think just because you have a cutter it's going to go quickly but you always have to move out those fondant edges and that can take quite a bit of time all right so I'm going to set that aside on a paper towel I'm also going to include a link in the description bar of where you can get that silhouette cutter alright next I have some curls that straightening on the

cake

so I have a purl mold here and I'm going to put a row of white fondant in there and I'm gonna make a few ropes of pearls alright next I have edible pearl spray and I'm going to spray those pearls just to give it a sheen you may not be able to see too well but the pearl look like pearls next he just wanted something on the

cake

board that says will you marry me so I'm just really on a thin layer of fondant so I can write that on the

cake

board now the

cake

is going to have some chocolate chip berries another request that...
proposal cake gold drip cake tutorial teal gold theme in 2020
he had is that it have

teal

which is his girlfriend's favorite color so I'm going to do some

teal

sparkle berries and some

gold

Sparkle berries in other videos you probably notice that I put shortening into the chocolate when I melted it and that's just something I always do to thin out my chocolate so I'm not gonna do any sort of fancy designs with the berries I'm just going to do some basic chocolate dipping and then I'm going to sprinkle on some sanding sugar like what I got is pretty much every single video cuz I'm obsessed

gold

highlighter does you need

gold

in your life yo look how pretty it is it makes everything pop I'm telling you so per my other videos you see me always makes my

gold

hilar dust with a little bit of alcohol or a lemon extract so I can turn it into a paint so on these plain berries I'm just brushing a few brushstrokes of

gold

on the berry nothing fancy nothing elaborate and then on the berries where it has the

gold

standing sugar I really wanted to blow mines with my

gold

so I'm just going to brush

gold

on top of that just so it pops like the difference love it all right all done so I'm gonna put my berries on a plate when you see our left a few berries playing and that's just because on the

cake

I'm going to cut those and then put them on the

cake

look at my beautiful berries as my berry children yes all right so next I took the

cake

out the fridge and it was chilling for about 20 to 30 minutes...
proposal cake gold drip cake tutorial teal gold theme in 2020
so the crumb coat is nice and firm and I'm going to go ahead and ice the top half of the

cake

and white and the customer said his girlfriend's favorite color is

teal

so I'm going to do a

teal

ombre effect on the

cake

and the way that I'm going to do that is I'm going to ice the bottom part of the

cake

in the darker

teal

you know side notes is it

teal

or is it turquoise I don't like the word turquoise I don't know what it is mean turquoise got beef I don't like it I just want to know your thoughts

teal

or turquoise alright so next I'm taking my white icing and you see that I'm icing the middle section of the

cake

so that way those two colors blend together in a fade technique and the way that I'm going to smooth my

cake

is I like to use the hot water method so I'm taking my bench scraper I'm running it under super hot water and then I am running it along the edges of the

cake

so it's almost like you're ironing your

cake

so this is my favorite way of smoothing my

cake

s and then I take my bench scraper with the napkin and I like to go around the base of the

cake

in order to clean it up all right now my blood clot that has been sitting out right so for some reason the black bonnet starts to get a little ash you guys it it's a little ashy so I like to take my food brush dipped a little bit of vegetable oil and brush it so that way it gives it a shine and then I'm going to take some glue we're just gonna...
wrap that around the base of the

cake

and I want to use my pearl sheen so I can give the Cape a glossy Sheen now listen like I said I don't like I don't like a sheet yo I don't like hashey and for some reason the pearl on the black board always make it as she so then I always go with the paper towel and clean up and then I'm gonna put my Silhouette characters on there now see you look all shiny they are like that yes mister next I'm going to do my white chocolate

drip

so I'm putting some chocolate in a bag I'm just gonna

drip

a few lines down one of those lines got carried away they wanted to do what they wanted to do and I didn't like it but it's okay because you'll see how I fix that later the cool thing about

drip

cake

s is you can just let your creativity run wild let those creative juices flow through you so next I am taking my love to her that I found at the store and I'm going to put that in the middle and then I'm going to start to arrange my berries on top of the

cake

I also have some

gold

en Oreos and I'm going to put those on top of the

cake

and also draping on the pearls there and it's a good thing that I made three pearls because one of them broke which I figured that was going to happen because I really wanted to in the first place now that that chocolate

drip

has hardened I'm going to paint the chocolate chip fool I also took some skewers and I take those to the end of the topper insert because I...
actually wanted to extend my topper higher so that the flowers and the berries don't actually block the word level all right so as you can see I'm using flowers and I am strategically and artistically those choice words arranging those on my

cake

now don't talk about me right now okay don't shame me okay all you advanced

cake

decorators do not shame me I'm not gonna make a sugar flowers okay stay in my lane they look terrible too so I like to use real flowers for subscribers so these are silk flowers I actually got from Michaels I love their arrangements of soap flowers so pretty so what I'm doing is also taking some of those plain strawberries and I cut those in half and I'm also arranging those on the

cake

now I also have some diamonds diamonds are forever and I got those from my goes to so these are plastic craft diamonds I have not used ice them all yet in my life one day I will so for now I like to use these little plastic diamonds I clean those off and I use icing to stick them onto the

cake

board now that song is the right head okay so next what I want to do because in my life it's all

gold

everything baby I am going to do some

gold

embellishing on my flowers I'm doing some

gold

embellishing on my berries and guess what I'm gonna do

gold

embellishing on some of the icing look at that with how glorious and radiant it is even some of those Oreos baby are getting
