Learn how to make a sugar centrepiece (or topper) of four swans pulling a seashell carriage.
In this tutorial, Serdar will teach you how to make a sugar centerpiece which can be placed on the side of a high cake or on top of a flat cake. This piece can be a key element of a marine or a beach themed cake.
It is a wedding tradition where couples arrive to their destinations in all sorts of interesting and romantic carriages. If we use our imagination we can think of many combinations of carriages and animals pulling the carriages. Serdar’s idea in this tutorial is to have a vessel for the carriage, that is completely made from seashells and coral, which is then pulled by 4 swans over the water.
Some of the things that Serdar will show you is how to create natural looking swans, how to give the swans wings a more “full” appearance and how to use a starch bed to achieve any 3D form with pastillage. Of course, like most of Serdar’s tutorials, he will show you how to make these sugar elements without the use of molds or expensive tools. Although it isn’t covered in this tutorial, you can also create sugar bride and groom figurines to sit inside the carriage.
