Can I just ask, how did you do the pixel icing? and the shape of the biscuits?

Sure! So for the icing I just rolled some out and used a square plunger cutter to cut out all the 'pixels' and left them aside to harden while I started working on the next colour of pixels.

Once I had all the pixels I needed in all the colours, I started building up the characters on a very thin layer of rolled out white fondant, using a little bit of edible glue to keep them in place. I then cut the white base icing around the character and left this aside to harden again.

Putting the characters together takes a long time so I done this before making the biscuits. This way I was also able to use the pre-made pixel character decorations as the templates for cutting out the biscuit dough - once I rolled out the dough, I placed the character on top and cut around it, leaving a little bit extra around the sides.

Hope that makes sense! =]

I really like these; how did you do the icing? And how big are the squares?
Reply
:iconbeaniebat:
BeanieBat Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013
Thanks! =] I just made up lots of different colours of fondant icing and then used a square cutter to cut out hundreds of little 'pixels'! Once I had all the colours I needed, I just put them all in the right order onto a white fondant icing base (rolled as thin as I could make it) and used edible glue to keep them all in place. Not very complicated, but it does take longer than you'd expect... especially making up all the colours! I'm pretty sure the cutter I used was 6mm.

I bet they did :D did you use a square cutter for them?

...and yea, it would be a challenge to do a big picture with pixels. Perhaps for one of
the kids cakes just incase I lose patience half way through and have to improvise :lol:
Reply
:iconbeaniebat:
BeanieBat Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013
Yep, I did. Had to get them perfectly square and all the same size and that just wasn't going to happen with my hand and a scalpel! =P

Hehe, good plan! I had a batch of dough go off in the fridge while I was still sorting out these decorations! Had to finish them first before making a fresh batch of dough! =P

I never have any luck with square cutters staying square :lol: I have to roll out the icing, and wait for a couple of hours and use a scalpel and ruler....takes so long!

BeanieBat Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2013
Haha yeah, I had to throw quite a lot of them away... but then I developed a system that seemed to work, so it was ok in the end! Wow, takes long enough with the cutter - I can't imagine having to use a ruler and scalpel!

Yea.....I haven't thought about getting more cutters :lol: I never
usually do until I'm doing a cake, then don't leave myself enough time to
order them.
The ruler and scalpel does take a while, but those darn straight edges
are the thing that makes all the difference sometimes :D

Oh I do that all the time! There's always something I forget to order.

Hehe, bet you're and expert at it now anyway! I wouldn't trust myself to get them exact =P

Unfortunately, the biscuits are pretty plain, have a little mixed spice in them but that's all... needed ones that wouldn't expand too much in the oven =[
