The infant and I (almost) share our birthdays, and Mrs P organised a party at the weekend. She got someone to make a cake with two marzipan Fiat 500s on it - I'll post pics when I find my camera :oops: Anyway, I know this is a strange request, but does anyone know whether I can spray them with clear varnish or something to preserve them?Delia

Photograph them for posterity, then scoff them. (Getting OTHER people to make the cakes is a very canny move. DIY cakeage should be avoided, as demonstrated by my attempts to make poglet maximus a 'dalek' cake....)

<< Ex-baker :D :D I'm sure there is a glazing process, for preserving icing, etc indefinately but the memory eludes me. I'll have a search, see wot I can find.

Try hairspray. T'wife got a cake made for a friend's birthday with a scale model of her (oo-err!) done in icing - she sprayed it to set it and it still looks OK. Haven't tried eating any though so dunno what it would do to the taste.
