Batman cake

Hi,

I am making my Nephew a Batman Birthday cake for his 5th Birthday this month, I drew out exactly how I want the cake, including buildings all around the bottom 2 tiers, my question is, how the heck do I do the buildings? I want them to be flat, sturdy so they dont droop over and I want them in three colors, black, grey and a greyish blue so however i make them i have to be able to color them, any suggestions?

From the editor:

Hi Luis,

The perfect technique for this would be the multi-color chocolate drawing method.

It's a relatively simple technique using melted candy coating in parchment cones to pipe or 'draw' your design in as many colors as you need. Check out the tutorial by clicking the link above.

Good luck and don't forget to take lots of pictures of your finished cake, so you can come back here and show off your masterpiece.

Regards,
Michelle (editor)
