Creating food items out of sugar can be challenging but cake designer Elisa Strauss breaks down the process into easy to follow steps so that anyone can make hyperrealistic cakes. Join Elisa in this premium video to learn how to make bacon that looks so real no-one would know it is made from sugar. First, she will show you how to create the the characteristic marbled look of bacon by combining modeling chocolate and fondant together. Once it is sliced, Elisa adds lots of texture and shape for a more realistic look. And finally, the addition of a shiny glaze and some edible food color turn this sweet confection into a crisp piece of fried bacon. Use this technique to create toppings for a burger cake or add it to a stack of pancakes with eggs to complete a breakfast themed cake.
