Peach shaped cake

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am looking for ideas to make a cake shaped like a peach. A customer has a friend who is moving to Georgia and thought this would be a cute idea for a going away party. Any input would be greatly appreciated!! icon_lol.gif

Thanks

Really cute idea...I'm sure I'm getting the name wrong, but doesn't Wilton have a puffed heart pan? Peach colored and with a leaf & stem (candy clay, fondant?) I think that would work well and fairly easy too!

um... sports ball pan? you could freeze the cake and carve it whil it's still frozen. Whatever you decide to do, just be careful it doesn't end up looking like a giant butt. Not sure how that could be taken. icon_redface.gificon_lol.gif

How about Wilton's 3D pumpkin cake? You'd have to smooth the ripples out, but it might work?

if you're looking to do a stand-up 3-d, you could try using the wilton halloween pumpkin cake pan. tone your icing with enough red to keep it peachy looking (as opposed to fleshy-looking). airbrushing would be perfect (but i don't own one and most of us don't), so you might try using slighty different shades of icing over the surface to give more natural appearance (find a nice peach at the grocery store to use as your model).

alternately, you could do a cake that's shaped like a market-basket and have smaller "peaches" placed on the top.

Somewhere, I believe it's in South Carolina, along the interstate, is a water tower shaped like a 'peach', supposedly, but it looks like a giant butt! When I used to go home with a friend from college we'd pass by it and laugh so hard. This has nothing to do with finding a cake idea, but your post just reminded me of that!
