Time is Running Out!
Start your new year countdown with an elegant watch design for your holiday cake.
• gumpaste • x-acto knife • fondant • scissors • round cookie cutter • silicon mold • piping bag • icing • two punchers, one slightly bigger than the other • paint brush • paint
1 For the body of the watch, make a ball of gumpaste approximately 2.5 inches in diameter. Cut the ball in half and cover both in white fondant. 2 Using a cookie cutter, carefully remove the fondant on the rounded side of the ball. 3 Get a new sheet of fondant and press it down a silicon mold to get desired design. 4 Cut off fondant with design using the same cookie cutter. Glue it down the rounded side of the ball using icing. 5 Make the chain of the watch by first making round fondants with a big puncher. Punch a hole on it again using a smaller puncher. Connect the fondants and paint using gold food color. 6 Paint the whole body of the watch in gold as well. Make the winder using fondant and adhere onto the side of the gumpaste ball. 7 Add the numbers and hands on the face of the watch using black food grade pen.
