How do I make my cheesecake for a display? They will be outside at a farmer's market, so heat and cold will be a factor. I don't want them to dry out and I need them to be the exact dimensions of my different sizes. I want them to look "real".

    Does anyone know how to make fake food? My husband is restoring an old car and I wanted to surprise him with one of those trays that hang on the side with the food on it or even the spilled fake food.

    Thanks,
    Audrie from PA

    I am trying to tint resin to pour into coffee cups that will look like real coffee. So far I have not found the perfect combination or dye. Does anyone know what to use?

    Coffee-brew yourself a cup and use some to tint the resin. I did tea that way, coffee should work the same way.

    Be sure to let the coffee cool so that it doesn't act as a catalyst too early in the process (lol, ask me how I learned that one!).

    Does anyone know how to make those fake cakes? It looks like the frosting is made of plaster of Paris.

    You can make them easily with styrofoam and Royal Icing. The icing gets rock hard and will last indefinitely, as long as it's not exposed to humidity.

    Polymer clay makes the prettiest candies you've ever seen and most definitely very life like! I made some years ago and everyone that came into my home would try to eat them. lol I can't tell you how many have reached and popped them into their mouths before I could stop them. They look exactly like the old fashioned hard Christmas candies. You can make them any colors you want and any shape you want and they last forever!

    If you go to a craft store that carries Wilton products, they sometimes also carry styrofoam "cakes" in all shapes and sizes. The styrofoam is more like the kind they used to make coolers with - not so porous. I found this out the hard way, when I was asked to make a display wedding cake, and bought styrofoam circles from Michael's and had to glue numerous ones together to make a full layer. In all, I used about 12 pieces, in 3 sizes, when I could have bought 3 pieces in the heights I needed. Live and learn! I did mine in Royal Icing, which hardened almost immediately, so work quick, but to this day, the hotel is still using that cake! they keep it refrigerated to be safe, but it has stood up beautifully. Good luck!

    A funny story I HAVE to share!When my Daughter married last year I baked her wedding cake.Along with all the other chores to be done I was running on a tight schedule and didn't get it baked until 2 in the morning of the wedding,and the top layer hadn't baked completely when I started decorating. In tears I vowed I wouldn.t be defeated. I iced the pan of the top layer(which wouldn't have been eaten anyway!!) and instructed the girl cutting the cake to take it off discreetly before cutting the other layers.HEY---you gotta do what you gotta do!!! No one at the reception but me and her knew the difference!

    Resin is probably the best choice, very lightly tinted with yellow dye (go to the your local craft store and ask them about resin).

    Why not use Sparkling grape juice of sparkling cider? They are non-alcoholic and in a bottle that resembles a champagne bottle.

    Ginger ale can look like champagne. If it's not going to be drunk (if it doesn't have to tip when the glass does, add gelatin to solidify it. Resin has been suggested. That would be good for a one-time project. From the stage, I don't think you can tell about what the liquid is. Apple juice, diluted, isn't tasty, but would be thrifty.

    When making a miniature cream pie (artificial), how do you lighten up the caulk that is used for the topping? I would like it to be a little bit fluffier. I'm making miniature ones with filo clay, no hole beads and need a light fluffy topping to look like meringue.

    I am wondering about the caulk too. Caulk. As I know it, is for fixing things like cracks.

    Yeah, me too! I was thinking "maybe she is from another country" but now it all makes sense.

    Too funny.

    I googled miniatures and got this. You may want to ask someone who makes things like this for a living. However, Aileens glues make just about any thing you might want. My first thought was some of her puff paint, but just a bit of offwhite glue might work too. You would need to experiment on some of the pies to find if it falls flat as it's drying, but I am sure you will find the right product and method. When you do, can you share it with us? How cute!!

    I enclosed a shot of one I took at our local fair. Good luck!!

    I used to work in a bakery with my sister and we always used styrofoam. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and they can be cut for what you need if you are making odd shapes. We made an icing with just powdered sugar and shortening since no one will be eating it there is no need for the butter or flavoring but you can color it. Fake crumbs you can crumble cookies or crackers and we used fake flowers sometimes. Hope this helps

    If making a fake strawberry pie, with no top crust, how do I make the fake gel?

    By El

    Answer This QuestionWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes
    May 21, 20120 found this helpful

    I'm thinking that colored glue might work for the gel. Just add food coloring to any glue that dries clear. You might need quite a bit so I would go to multiple bottles from a dollar store. Now paste food coloring might give u a better color, but is more expensive. You could also try poster paint in powder form. Mix it slowly until u get color you want. You might need to work fast or it may take awhile to get solid as the layer would quite thick I would think.You could always make or buy a styro circle that fits in the pie shell and just do a medium thick layer of the gel. Hope this helps.
