These dinosaurs were made after the Dinosaur fondant cake , it is part of my experiment with fondant, to test how long the fondant dinosaurs can last on room temperature (So that I know whether is feasible for me to make a fondant cake for my son or not, is my last thought to have a bleeding cake for his birthday). As you see in the first picture, the fondant figurines bleed ... it was just out from the fridge.
You can see the blue dinosaur bleeds more than yellow one, this is because blue food colouring was added to the blue dinosaur. At that time I've no idea that I should use the anti-bleed food colouring instead of the normal food colouring.
What is the snowy things on the figurines? Is powder sugar and cornstarch! Well they didn't help in stopping the fondant from melting. Not in Singapore. And I said it makes them ...look messy!
One finding from the Internet said that, if the cake figurine is to be consume later than use fondant as it is soft. However if the figurine is not for consume then use gumpaste as it will be harder and stable than fondant. Is this true? I guess I need to explore with gumpaste as well.
It was ok when I first added the blue food colouring, just you can feel the fondant is softer than the normal one.
It feel dry and beautiful when I finished with the figurine.
My triceratop starts to bleed, oh poor thing! I place them into the freezer and then to the fridge before taking out to room temperature. This is as suggested by a web forum, but I tell you, this is NOT working!
My blue T-Rex becomes sticky and shinny, oh no!
I need to continue experiment with my fondant to find a way to contain the bleed!
