Episode 60 – Kyla Myers


Featuring Kyla Myers of the That Takes the Cake! Sugar Arts Show.

Show Notes

The main gummy page has photos of what I was talking about in terms of making big sheets on the old Ateco mat, and then wrapping them around a cake with a dolphin on top. There’s also one photo there of the Wolverine tank we discussed in this episode, and although it’s hard to tell, the Wolverine fondant figure was whole with legs and everything, but the part submerged in gummy was already dissolved in there by the time I took that photo. There are more photos of that cake on the Wolverine cake page here, including details on how I used the candy-coating-like technique with gummy to make the exploding barn.

The experiments using chilled buttercream and making a mould of my own hand can be seen here.

Experiments with using the candy-coating method on chocolate can be found here.

Some of these gummy projects are fully written out for a handout I did for a class that I said I’d offer for sale if there was sufficient interest, so if you are interested go say so on the post about that PDF here. Here’s a clip from that PDF showing how I coated a bit of dried fondant:

Otherwise some of it is covered in my Flexible, Edible Stained Glass ebook here. A 3D application of the stained glass technique was used for this dress cake I made for Cake International:

gummy dress front

The base and dress form are covered in fondant with rkt making up the bulk of the form, but the dress is entirely gummy.

gummy dress rear

The lacey bits and the string lace at the back are all made from Flexible Chocolate/Chocolate Gummy

Heather Sherman’s amazing Threadcakes entry that Kyla and I spoke about can be seen fully here.

The Molly Robbins CakeFlix class about Pie and Chips with the gravy lesson can be found here.
