This isn't the first XBOX 360 groom's cake I have done, and I was pretty happy with it, except for those darn air vents on top. I have always struggled with the best way to reproduce this "vented" look on a cake I am trying to recreate. Using small fondant circles doesn't look right because they are raised of the cake. Even the big circular cupcake sprinkles don't look right and they are very thin! On this attempt I used a small cutter to cut through the fondant and then fill in each hole with black icing. Yes. it was time consuming and I can't believe it looks as good as it did. I have to do another XBOX cake before the end of the year and I am brainstorming my options now.
So... have any of you decorators out there made a cake with these type of vent holes before? If so, what worked best for you? Let me know in the comments section!!
Have a great weekend!
