Hi, I am on a begging mission, I've been asked to make a cake simliar to this I'd had a look at my local library for the Debbie Brown Enchanted cakes book but they are on loan atm. Does anyone have a copy that they could scan the relevant pages for me and email?
Also i've looked online for tutorials for the mice but can't find anything, can someone point me in the right direction.
From memory, 50 easy party cakes has a pumpkin cake that I think you could use as a base and I think it also has mice on it so that might help with the modelling? My copy is at my mum's at the moment so can't check to be sure
I know this was a while ago, but I have Enchanted Cakes, and Magical Cakes, and can't see a carriage cake in either. There's Cinders running from the castle, but no carriage. From the link, it looks like a roundish cake (or 2 pudding bowl cakes on top of each other which you can then decorate how you like to look like a carriage ie window/door on the side, glitter etc, and then 4 circles of sugarpaste/pastillage for the wheels. You could also wrap a biscuit in sugarpaste for a bit more substance.
For the mice I would try to break them down in to simple sugarpaste shapes. It looks like they're a short, fat oval for the body, and a blunt cone for the head, drape around a thinner piece of icing for the clothes and make arms out of the same colour sugar paste as the clothes. Small bits of pink paste for the ears/nose and attach together with sugar glue or diluted paste.
