Add Your Mini Pie Filling & Details
Once the paint completely dry, flip your mini pie cake over and create the “cherry filling” using some rolled-out red fondant. Try to create a bumpy texture when rolling it out to really enhance that pie filling look, and then lay the fondant overtop. Trim away any excess. To create the lattice crust, take some pastry-coloured fondant, roll it out, and cut into strips. Next, create your lattice pattern and lay overtop of your pie. Trim the strips so they don’t hang over the pie, and then paint your entire pie crust using some Ivory food colouring mixed with a bit of clear food grade alcohol. Using a piping bag and some cherry (or other red-coloured) jam, pipe the jam into the top of the pie in between your lattice fondant strips to make it look more realistic. Finally, sprinkle a bit of sugar onto the pastry so it has a sweet sugared crust!
