This video focuses on the Bamboo mould, which offers three different sizes of bamboo. These elements are synonymous with Asian themes, tropical cakes, and tiki cakes.
The bamboo mould is versatile, allowing for the creation of both three-dimensional bamboo and relief bamboo. The three-dimensional bamboo can be used in a variety of ways, such as creating sprays for a cake, forming handles on handbag cakes, and the relief style for crafting borders around the side of a cake.
To create the dimensional bamboo border, press your paste into the mould, ensuring it fills the entire shape. Once filled, remove the excess and gently release the formed bamboo from the mould. The bamboo can be cut to the desired height before applying directly to the side of a cake using edible glue, creating a stunning and unique decoration.
Once the bamboo has dried, it can be coloured using dusting powders. Consider using shades of green and brown to create a natural look.
Remember, the versatility of these moulds allows for a wide range of creative possibilities. Experiment with different mediums, colours, and combinations to create unique and stunning cake decorations.
