You will need

To decorate

  • edible liquid colours: yellow, brown, green
  • edible glue

Equipment

  • oval shape cutter
  • mini palette knife
  • rolling pin
  • airbrush
  • foam pad

Instructions

1
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

1
With your mini palette knife, design some diagonal lines.
2
Repeat the same process, but in the opposite direction. Set aside your pineapple on a foam pad to dry a little.

Make the leaves

1
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

1
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

1
Repeat the process in order to create 6 leaves.

Apply colour

1
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.
2
Repeat the same process to colour the leaves, using a few drops of green and brown liquid colour.

Finishing touches

1
Attach the pineapple to your cake with some edible glue. Repeat the process with the leaves, adding them one by one.
