Yesterday we took a look at how to make Earl Grey infused cupcakes. The post included two types of flavoured butter cream and two kinds of easy, low effort Steampunk inspired cake decorations.
Today’s post shows you step by step how I created the edible bronze cogs and washers.
These decorations involved a few bits of specialist equipment and a considerable time commitment (approx 2hrs) but it was well worth the effort. I will certainly make them again if I ever need to contribute to a steampunk event and I am already plotting a robotic themed birthday party for my 2 3/4 year old.
Note: The bronze paint is made using “Bronze Professional Metallic Lustres”, an edible food colouring powder, and a few drops of clear alcohol, which evaporates during the drying process.
