You will need
- white flower paste, or you could use white sugarpaste
- edible liquid colours: yellow, brown, green
- edible glue
- oval shape cutter
- mini palette knife
- rolling pin
- foam pad
Roll out a small piece of white flower paste, or use some white sugarpaste instead. Using an oval shaped cutter, cut out a piece of sugarpaste.
Mark the fruit
With your mini palette knife, design some diagonal lines.
Repeat the same process, but in the opposite direction. Set aside your pineapple on a foam pad to dry a little.
Make the leaves
Shape a small piece of your white sugarpaste into a sausage roll. Flatten it with your rolling pin, leaving it a bit thick.
Mark the leaves
Using the mini palette knife, make an indent in the centre of each leaf, then model the leaf with your hands until you get the right shape.
Arrange the leaves
Repeat the process in order to create 6 leaves.
Add a few drops of yellow colour to the airbrush, then colour the pineapple by pressing gently. Increase the pressure to colour the borders. Add a few drops of brown colour, then colour the borders and give the pineapple a bit of life and shadows.
Repeat the same process to colour the leaves, using a few drops of green and brown liquid colour.
Attach the pineapple to your cake with some edible glue. Repeat the process with the leaves, adding them one by one.
