How to Carve A Spiral Cake

Posted by Berecca [featuredcakes] A lot of people have been asking for the photos that I took of my hiking cake while it was in progress. So here are the photos with explanations on them. 1.  First place your toothpicks into the top of the cake where you would like the path to be. 2.  Now, mark your cake how steep you want your path to be with more toothpicks.

How to Make a 3D Candle Cake

Posted by RoadrunnerGER Thank you for all the nice comments on my candle cake. I’m still stunned that the candles, that I didn’t even want to post at first, are so well liked. Thank you as well for requesting this. As I didn’t take pictures of the stages I had to improvise and make a few sketches. I hope it’ll help. As I was already asked about it: I don’t make the marzipan myself. I can buy it at the local supermarket. The marzipan paste we can get there is a bit too dark and soft for modelling, so I usually knead in about the same amount of confectioner’s sugar.... read more

How to Make a 3D Tank Cake

Posted by Mike_Elder A really simple little sherman tank cake.  Only takes about 45 minutes to make and is really cute.  My nephew loved it and even the turret turns a little. This is a pretty simple, straight forward little cake.  I started with 2 tall 1/2 sheets and a single 5" round. I begin by stacking the 2 half sheets as usual and trim them down a little to the correct shape.  Its a pretty simple shape.  wider at the tracks and of course tapered at the front and sloping to the rear. I find it best to google some reference images before I begin and... read more

How to Make a 3D Turkey Cake

Posted by MrsMissey     It is that time of year again and I am getting quite a few requests for the directions for my roasted turkey.   I baked the following: 1 x 9x13 cake 1 x half egg (the large one) cake 8 mini egg half cakes   I started out by putting the 9 x 13 on a regular turkey serving plate for effect but you don't have to! Place your large egg shaped cake (round side up) and put on top of the 9 x 13 cake, with icing in between to hold in place. I didn't use any dowels or any support. Carve the 9 x 13 to match the shape of the... read more
