This is a cake I made for a baby boy's Christening. I sculpted the lamb out of marshmallow fondant mixed with a little tylose powder so that it would harden when dry. To make the lamb's wool I rolled out little ropes of fondant, then rolled them into swirls and attached them with a little water. The black details are Americolor edible marker.
I printed out the letters and numbers onto paper in the chosen font, set the paper over the strip of fondant, and used a pin to mark where the letters should go. Then I piped the letters with royal icing, using the pin marks as a guide. It worked like a charm!
The blocks are solid marshmallow fondant with royal icing letters. I weighed the fondant on a scale so that each block would be the same size, then molded them into shape (not as easy as you might think!) Next time, I would insert wooden skewers into the cake and then place the blocks onto the skewers to give the blocks a bit more support. I also would have rolled the fondant a but thicker to make it more opaque. Every project is a learning experience!
