Hi, my name is Porsha Kimble, The Cake Diva. And today, I'm here to show you how to decorate your cake '70s style. We've actually just sprayed our cake with a can of colored decorating spray. And of course, it comes in an array of colors, so you're welcome spray it whatever color you choose. We're going to put the rhinestone trim on the bottom of the cake. And for that to stick, we're going to use corn syrup. We're going to put it on a decorating brush and just place this on the back, lower portion of the cake. This way, the trim stays in place. Next, what we're going to use, is some piping gel. This will enable all of our fondant decorations to stay. You can use water, vodka and even clear vanilla. But the piping gel will actually hold thicker fondant pieces. You're probably wondering how we got these fondant pieces and how we created them. It's pretty simple. We actually took a template from the computer, printed it out and cut it, placed it onto the fondant and cut around it. I'm placing the piping gel and now, we're going to firmly push this onto our cake. Seventies can be done in anyway. You can do different colors, different styles, this is just something quick and easy that we're putting together. The great thing about this cake, is we have a dancing couple. Yet again, we use the templates to cut out our fondant in. Now, I'm going to add the last piece of our seventies theme cake, still applying piping gel, we're going to push that and make it secure, and voilà. My name is Porsha Kimble, The Cake Diva, and I just showed you how to make a seventies theme cake, peace out.
