Let’s make the little princess happy !!! ♥ ♥ ♥
Materials needed: (sizes to choose them according to the size you want to do it)
-1 Expanded polystyrene sphere.
-1 Expanded polystyrene cone.
-1 Expanded polystyrene rectangular base. (Finely thickness).
-1 Wooden stick (wooden brochette).
-12 Small wooden sticks (toothpicks).
-Fondant or Gum Paste.
-Gel Paste dye (yellow, blue, pink).
-Gold Powdered dye.
-1 Flexible plastic base to work.
-1 Cube or porexpan Base, a little high (to prick the sphere while working).
-1 Curved modeling tool.
-1 Silicone mold with figures of pearls and leaves as images (if you do not have mold can try to model the figures looking at pictures).
– 3 Cutters of circle: 1 small, 1 medium and 1 large (the medium only slightly smaller than the largest to place within it).
-1 Squeezer fondant (for rolls but can also be done by hand).
-2 Brushes (one to glue the pieces and another to paint with coloring powder).
– Paper serviettes and wax paper if necessary.
Photo 1 – 4: Cover the sphere with light blue fondant and try to make it as smooth as possible.
Photo 5-6: To work better, poke the sphere in the bucket of porexpan and try not to touch the base. With the curved modeling tool, make 6 lines, top to bottomimitating 6 sections.
Photo 7 to 9: Cut the cone base porexpan in order to use as part of the base. Cover the base of porexpan (just top and sides) with fondant the same color of the sphere.
Photo 10 to 12: Make hole with wood stick at the base of the cone and tested with the sphere (only make the holes, still not paste).
Photo 13 to 15: With the silicone mold, make a strip of fondant pearls in the same color of the sphere. Paste the pearls along the base of the cone covered previously.
Photo 16 to 19: Cover the rectangular base of Expanded polystyrene to be part of the base. Cover both sides with fondant the same color of the sphere, and try to make it as smooth as possible.
Photo 20 to 22: Make hole with wood stick center rectangular base covered previously. Assemble the base (like a sandwich): 1- First insert the base of the cone with the previously glued pearls. 2- She put the wooden stick into the hole previously done. 3- Place based glue stick on the sides and superimpose the previously covered rectangular base, and with the hole previously made. 4- Put glue on the rectangular base, sides stick, to superimpose the sphere covered previously, and with the hole previously made.
Photo 23-26: For the wheels, stretch fondant the same color of the shpere (not too thick) and cut with circular cutting by putting the medium into the largest centrally. Make 4 wheels. To complete them, with the same color fondant circles, make 4 long rolls and 4 circles with the smallest of the 3 sizes cutting. At the wheel, put centered, one of the small circles and paste into it the tip of one of the rolls and screw around (guided with images 25/26), once screwed, cut and paste the other extreme to the part of the big wheel. Let dry well to take firmer. Make the 4 wheels.
Photo 27: Perform in fondant with the same color of the sphere two rolls of thick thickness, to place on the shorter edges of the rectangular base.
Photo 28: Perform in fondant with the same color of the sphere, two rectangles the length of the longer edges of the rectangular base. Trim the form looking at the image.
Photo 29: Sticking the two rectangles with the shape previously made on the long edges of the rectangular base. Then glue the thick rolls on the short edges of the rectangular base. To hold them while dry, put rolls of paper serviettes underneath, and somewhat heavier on the sides to hold more firmly.
Photo 30 – 40: We started making the details in yellow fondant, and with the silicone mold, guided with images. 1- To the door of the carriage perform a strip of pearls, 2 small figures, to put on the top, and a small roll molded by hand to the doorknob. 2- To the tip top of the carriage make 4 small figures (equal to those of the door). Make a small hand-molded cone and glue the 4 figures on it. Finish with a small ball at the tip. 3- For the front seat, make 2 small figures (equal to those of the door and tip), 2 large and finer figures, a large leaf for the back and a hand molded seat width of the leaf. 4- For the rear seat, make 2 small figures (equal to those of the main seat), 2 large and finer figures (same as the main seat), and a seat base molded by hand (a little smaller to that made for the main seat). 5- For details of the base make 8 large figures (equal to those of the seats.
Photo 41-47: To complete the door stretch out white fondant and make an oval that will fit within the framework of pearls previously done. Cut out the shape with the image guided n.41. Repeat the same with dark blue fondant with image guided nº42. Superimposing parts of the ovals as in nº43 image. For curtains, stretch pink fondant with a similar image nº44 shape and make the pleats as shown in image No. 45. Cut in half, add at one end of each half a roll of pink fondant to simulate catching the curtain. Accommodate (unglued) all parts of the door as in image No. 47 to check that everything fits.
Photo 48-49: Painting with gold powder dye (undiluted) all details made in yellow fondant, let dry slightly so that they take the pieces firmly.
Photo 50-55: Start paste all parts of the door and add a roll of white fondant between the part of white fondant and dark blue part, to make it embossed part of the door. Continue gluing other details always guided with the images.
Photo 56-61: For seats make two holes with toothpicks at half height as shown in the picture nº56, do it in both seats. Put sticks in them and leave some of their tips out to bring them to the bases of the seats thus leaving well secured, put glue to the bases to superimpose on sticks. Paste the details of the seats guided with images.
Photo 62-66: Finally, put the wheels. To do this, we will put on each wheel two toothpicks as shown in the image Issue 62. This will be to reinforce the fastening. Carefully will glue on the parts of the wheel can touch the carriage and will approach sticks to remain firm. Be careful that sticks do not traverse to the other side. Put the 4 wheels and make a ball of fondant and stick it in the middle of the small circle for completion. Let dry well ..
Once dry, it is ready to decorate cakes princesses !!!
