Egg White Wikipedia

For gluing.

Egg white is the common name for the clear liquid (also called the albumen or the glair/glaire) contained within an egg. In chickens it is formed from the layers of secretions of the anterior section of the hen's oviduct during the passage of the egg. It forms around fertilized or unfertilized egg yolks. The primary natural purpose of egg white is to protect the yolk and provide additional nutrition for the growth of the embryo (when fertilized). Egg white consists primarily of about 90% water into which is dissolved 10% proteins (including albumins, mucoproteins, and globulins). Unlike the yolk, which is high in lipids (fats), egg white contains almost no fat, and carbohydrate content is less than 1%. Egg whites contain just over 50% of the protein in the egg. Egg white has many uses in food (e.g. mousse) and also many other uses (e.g. in the preparation of vaccines such as those for influenza).
White Chocolate Wikipedia

For gluing.

Chocolate is a typically sweet, usually brown, food preparation of Theobroma cacao seeds, roasted and ground, often flavored, as with vanilla. It is made in the form of a liquid, paste, or in a block or used as a flavoring ingredient in other sweet foods.

    I was surprised to see you use ribbon and silk flowers. Is it ethical to use the ribbon and the silk flowers as they are not edible? You are an amazing teacher and a joy to watch.

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Yes and no. There is always forgivable ethical problems as long as they fit the purpose for the right reason. Using a non-food ribbon may disqualify you from the competition. For a wedding cake which is accepted by the bride at the consulting stage will be just right.

  2. Francine Rochon says:

    Beautiful Thank you so much to take the time to explain us what is the best way to do the thing.

  3. Beland Akose says:

    You are amazing Sir!

  4. Alis Nuta says:

    Hi. I have a question, I was taught to mix the color for painting with alcohol to dry faster. It is better to mix it with water? Thank you very much! You’re the best teacher, the most detailed tutorials!

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Yes, colors dry quicker when mixed with alcohol but works better with water. It all depend on how much, where, how quick.

  5. klince says:

    Dear mr. Serdar. I love all of your tutorials. You are the best teacher I’ve ever had. You widen my horizon of what is possible to make out of a cake. Thank you so so much. I made your funny couple figurines and I loved it:)

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      I am glad to hear that. Thank you.

  6. Adele says:

    Fantastic. When you show these steps bit by bit we are actually encouraged that they are quite achievable. Thank you again for sharing your skills and knowledge. I so appreciate that you use everyday bits and pieces to make the details on these exceptional little caricatures. It has made me keep an eye out for similar. It encourages that we don’t have to buy all the ‘tools’ to do a good job. Keep these tutorials coming they are wonderful. Thank you to Serkan as well for the amazing videography and edits… well done to you both.

    I am trouble viewing the tutorial. it keeps jumping back at 1.07.20 and not continuing to the end in part 1

    1. Serkan Yener says:

      Hi, please try refreshing the page and try again. It sounds like it is related to the action buttons below the video. You may have one of the repeat buttons activated. If you refresh the page and just go to that part of the video it should be ok. Let me know if you still have problems. Thanks
