A colleague at work asked me to make a tooth cake for his wife's work Christmas party, she works in a dentist's office.
I made a chocolate sheet cake and when it was cooled I carved out the tooth with a serrated knife. I then torted it to fill with butter cream icing that I made myself. It is the recipe from the Wilton website.
I crumb coated the tooth to avoid the chocolate crumbs getting into the white icing as I frosted the tooth. It didn't really work that well as I was very aggravated with those chocolate crumbs!! I would recommend crumb coating the night before decorating to give it a long time to dry and harden up. I was just too hasty with mine.
I made the tooth brush and leaf and berries from fondant mixed with some gumtex to make it harden up faster. I put the face on with colored butter cream icing and and number 4 tip. The solid black areas I piped in and then waiting a few minutes for the butter cream to crust over and then I patted it flat with my finger dipped in corn starch. The final touch, which you probably can't see in the photo is that I added edible glitter to the teeth.
I wasn't at the party and didn't get to see people's reactions, but was told the cake was a hit!
I made this Dental Implant Cake for one of the dentist's I work for. Her husband, also a dentist, wanted a unique cake, since her birthday fell on a Implant CE course that day.
I used a 11x14in cake pan. For the frosting I used a butter cream recipe, any one will do. For the decorations on the cake I used fondant icing which I purchased at the local store. For the mirror and explorer I added small amount of black coloring until I was happy with my color. I rolled out the fondant to look like the instruments and then set them out to dry.
The same with the teeth, I drew a template of the gum tissue and teeth on paper first and then cut them out and traced it on the fondant icing. For the gum tissue I added pink and red coloring until I got my desired color. Then rolled it out and cut out my shapes.
As for the tube of tooth paste and floss I just rolled out the fondant icing and shaped it into the toothpaste and floss. For the lettering I purchased edible markers, which I picked up at a local store which carries Wilton Products. The cake was a hit and added to the Ce course that day.
My friend is a dental assistant and wanted me to make a tooth cake for her boss, the dentist, for his birthday.
I made a double layer sheet cake (one chocolate layer and one vanilla layer). I then took a large serrated knife and began to shape it into a molar. At first it seems as you are destroying the cake, but as you continue to work on it, it starts to take the shape of a tooth.
I then made a double batch of marshmallow fondant and rolled it out to cover the cake, which had already been frosted with regular icing. Do not skip this step or the fondant will not stick to the cake. I began to smooth it over the entire cake really pressing down into the groves I had cut in the cake to give it the appearance of a 3D tooth.
I then colored a small portion of fondant turquoise and shaped it into a large long rectangle to make a toothbrush handle. I then made a 3D rectangle out of white fondant and then used the prongs of a fork to create the bristle lines of the brush.
