I would say just trim it that way. Also, the ring around the top will give it more of an angle visually.

icon_eek.gificon_surprised.gif I love that site cakemaker! How do you think they went about making that GAP bag cake? I would love to experiment icon_lol.gif

Any time! I'd love to do this full time!

The Gap cake is pretty cool! If I were making it I would stack cake slices for the height and then ice it and use chocolate for the sides so they would stand up above the top of the cake. You could use fondant too but I would think you would have to prop it up with something around the top until it would hold it's shape.

Thanks cakemaker. What do you mean by chocolate? Do you mean chocolate squares or blocks?
post #21 of 46
Melt the chocolate or chocolate coating and pour it into a cookie pan or onto parchment paper. after it has set use a warmed knife to cut it to size and shape. you can pipe melted chocolate to "glue" it together at the corners or just stand it up before the icing sets and that can hold it into place. You can also pipe the letters in chocolate or cut them with warmed letter cutters.

Does that make sense?

ok - the link isn't working for me. Go to "galleries" and "search" for "basketball". They will come up.

Thanks for showing the other cakes. I sent my client a picture of the first cake the Debbie showed me from "the perfectcake website" and she loved it. So this is the one I'm going to do for her.

I have one other question. I've never done a cake project this big so am I undercharging if I price the cake at $45?
post #30 of 46
I think you are under charging. You are making two cakes, plus all the time in sculpting and decorating. I would charge $60.
