Isomalt Shop Online

1 Cup (Only a little is needed but a cup allows for a little depth for dipping)

Isomalt is a sugar substitute, a type of sugar alcohol, used primarily for its sugar-like physical properties. It has only a small impact on blood sugar levels and does not promote tooth decay, i.e. is tooth-friendly. Isomalt is widely used for the production of sugar-free candy, especially hard-boiled candy, because it resists crystallisation much better than the standard combinations of sucrose and corn syrup. It is used in sugar sculpture for the same reason. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isomalt

    How much time do you estimate this cake takes? How many days in advance can you work on it while still maintaining the integrity of flavor etc. Thank you!

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      You can start as early as you wish, prepare construction an all the sugar parts ready. you worry about the cake when those all ready to go. If you have air-conditioned room 2-3 days is okay for decorating after you take the naked cake from the fridge out provided you use mud cake and ganache. I recommend my white mud cake sponge and dark or white ganache. Chocolat crust coat helps a lot.

      1. Cortney ArceJaeger says:

        Thank you.

    Hi Serdar,
    I’m preparing to make this cake next week and am trying to get all the materials together. I’m just having a hard time finding the lights. I ordered some that I’m sure now are too big so I will try again. What is the correct diameter for the lights? From the videos it looks like the back light is smaller than the front light? Is that the case? I found a couple options that are tea light size

    One that has a flat top and the other with the bulb sticking out. Are either of these what I should be looking for? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

  3. Ashley Beeler says:

    Hi Sedar, I just have a few questions, how much earlier in advance can I start everything? How many hours did it take to make start to finish?I have two weeks right now before my dad’s birthday so just wondering if I have enough time. Also, how many people will this cake feed? And last, I have to travel 7hrs to my parents so just wondering how sturdy the finished product is, and if you have any suggestions on securing it in the car or should I travel with it in finished sections and assemble it when I get there? Thankyou! So very much! I love this tutorial, I have wanted to do this for many years but unfortunately have been ill and not up to the task of figuring it out myself, this has taken a lot of the guesswork out of it and has made it possible for me to even try to attempt in making it!

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Sorry Ashley, I am too late . Happy belated Birthday for your father.

      1. Trisna Ermina says:

  5. NonaC says:

    What an awesome tutorial! Can’t wait to try this!! Thanks for all your hard work!!

  6. A Page says:

    Hi Friend,
    I’d like to know if it is possible to make this cake but with the saddle bags attached? If so, would you be so kind to tell me how I’d accomplish this. I also would like to ask about printing the blueprints. When you say 100%, are you referring to the initial print from the download or enlarging the download print 100%. I’m excited but SO very nervous so I’m trying to prevent misunderstandings. As always thank you for your generosity.
    Best regards,
    Page

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      What we mean, if your printer set to 100% you have the exact size like what I did. If you want to increase or reduce the size, print all downloadables in the same percentage. According to the size what I did the side bags are not very big. They will not be too heavy if you make it as cake . Just produce completely finished pieces coated with fondant let them dry over night and glue with chocolate . Just make sure poke few skewers through bike in possible locations to connect both sides, and patch it up

  7. vasanti rego says:

    how do you color pastillage black same way as fondant.

  8. vasanti rego says:

    can I use commercial gumpaste as pastiage

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      No . You can not replace pastillage with gum paste. For simple reason . No matter how much gum paste dries, it will not be rigid. Especially for cakes like Cruiser bike . For some parts, you can use gum paste but for example front fork center, only pastillage will work . Thanks

  9. Victor Fernandes says:

    Have you used any cake to build up the body of the motorbike or is it just
    a sugar cake topper

    1. Serkan Yener says:

      Hi Victor, yes the body of the motorbike is cake. Thanks

  10. KikiClear says:

    Hello, Dear Serdar! I was wondering if there is specific reason to use modeling chocolate for tires? Or can we use fondant as well? Thank you

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Yes. The reason I used modeling chocolate because it is get firmed in the fridge in few minutes and also it looks more like a rubber. You can use fondant by adding extra icing sugar.Thanks

  11. Nancy Buttino says:

    Hi Sedar ,One more question. I am trying to make the handle bar and yours looks so much fatter and I can’t get it smooth. What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks,
    Nancy

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      When you rolling your sugar paste over the wire and if you are not getting the bar thick enough you have to roll twice. I used 3mm craft wire. Thanks

  12. Nancy Buttino says:

    Hi, I am slowly getting this done and was wondering if it is okay to airbrush the silver on?

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Yes of course as long as the parts are not assembled yet.

  13. Nancy Buttino says:

    Hi, I just wanted to start out thanking you for this tutorial. I am about to start making this cake. I am so excited. I was trying to find a list of the things we are going to need and I can’t find it. Thank You for your help.

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Please look at preparation section under the video. Complete list is available in this area

  14. littleminion_81 says:

    Hi Serdar, could you please tell me where you bought the lights from? If possible post a link to where I can buy them. I’m in a very small town in Ontario, Canada and I know they don’t sell them anywhere around here.

    Thank you. I’m making this cake in a month or so.

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Hi littleminio, try Aliexpress.com
      -they sell 10 pieces of the single mini remote control led lights online.

      1. littleminion_81 says:

        Thank you very much 🙂

    2. Serkan Yener says:

      Hi littleminion_81, I did a search on ebay (Canada) and got a few results…
      http://www.ebay.ca/sch/i.html?_nkw=led+remote+light
      Hope it helps. Thanks

      1. littleminion_81 says:

        Thank you Serkan. I did that too and found some 🙂

  15. Antoi Pepper says:

    Hello, this is an incredible tutorial. Thank you very much. I was wondering, where did you get your blue prints from? It would be nice to know I can try other models using the techniques you have showcased in this tutorial. Thank you

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      The blue prints what I provide is my own drawing which is a combination made for a cake tutorial. You just have to go google images and search for the particular blue print and choose the one it appears right to you. You will end up in the right site.

    2. Serkan Yener says:

      Hi Antoi, A great website to use for blueprints is the following site…
      http://www.The-Blueprints.com
      There are thousands of blueprints but please note that they aren’t specifically for cakes. You would usually need to modify (simplify) them to suit a cake project. Hope it helps 🙂
