Make a Display Cake!

When I first began my cake business I made my very first display cakes out of real cake.  A total of 6 two tiered and one 3 tiered real decorated cakes for the Cal Expo show!  At the time it seemed like the easiest solution as I was not comfortable (at all) with making a non-edible display cake.  One of my biggest concerns is that Styrofoam cakes are very light and I cringed at the thought of fighting the cake to stay still as I worked to decorate it.   As time has gone on there have been a number of occasions such as shows during a busy week and photo shoots that I... read more

PVC structure for cakes

    I am still a new cake artist, and am far from perfect. I had an order for a children’s birthday party, in which the customer wanted a 3D character from a popular children’s show, Yo Gabba Gabba. I searched all over Cakesdecor and CC, as well as on the web, and was not able tyo find very many tutorials, let alone info on how to build PVC armature. I found a premade armature set on Caljava, but for $90.. well, that’s a tad expensive. I studied the structure, and went to my local hardware store and purchased all of the items I needed. For this particular cake, here are... read more
