ACDC Flame Cake

by Kayla Thomason
(Wylie, Texas)

This cake includes 2 9" round pans. I used red velvet cake with a cream cheese filling and a buttercream frosting that I had dyed black.

For the flames and the ACDC logo I printed off a flame pattern and logo fit to the size of the cake.

I used a tye dye technique using red, orange, and yellow on the fondant. After rolling out the fondant, I covered it in plastic wrap to keep it from drying out. I laid the paper on the fondant and traced it then cut it out!!

Not bad for my first time to use fondant!

From the editor:

Kayla, that's fantastic for your first time using fondant!

Here's a few tips for this type of cake:

1. To avoid the after taste you can sometimes get when making black, or very dark colored, buttercream, start with chocolate buttercream and add just a little black gel paste color.

2. For a similar effect to Kayla's fondant flames:
free-hand cut or trace and cut out the flame shapes on yellow fondant. Paint on red and orange color to get a realistic flame effect. You can do this with powdered or gel paste food color mixed with a little vodka and a regular artists brush.

Regards,

Absolutely Awesome NEW
by: Tabitha

I was looking for ideas for my husband's birthday cake. He is a true ACDC fan and has been for a long time. I came across your cake and is absolutely awesome!!! Just enough decoration and color-not too overwhelming like some of the others I have seen.
BEAUTIFUL!
