Cake made to look like childrens' game!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever made a cake real or dummy to look like a childrens' board game? I'm curious because I had a brainstorm yesterday. I'm in the beginning stages of planning my next entries to the San Diego Cake Club Confections on Parade show next March. I'm actually going to be brave enough to do a cake this time and a stacked one at that. All the cakes are dummies of course. Anyway, I bought my son Candy Land yesterday and the game board is so colorful that I thought it would be neat to mimic this on a cake. I'd like to put it on a multi-tiered stacked cake instead of a boring ol' sheet cake.

I have to start modeling everything for it now and storing it so the colors don't fade between now and then.

If anyone has done anything like this I would love to see any pictures and since I am completely inexperienced at fondant modeling how should I go about storing them so the colors don't fade or get broken before the show?


Thank you in advance,


Amy

I was browsing this site yesterday and clicked on one of the links and saw a candyland cake. I think the website was www.sweetconstructions.com

Very cute! I like it! Good memory about seeing it BTW! I want to do the cake entirely in fondant. I want to keep it crisp and vibrant! Making the figures for it will be a challenge for me though. How do you model anything with fingernails is what I want to know!!!!! Last time I tried they kept getting in the way and making marks I didn't need.

I've just seen a cake like that somewhere, but I can't for the life of me remember where. I'll keep trying to find it.

It seems like someone here just made and posted a pic of a Candyland cake a week or two ago. I can't remember for sure, but I'll look around. It's a cute idea, and I bet a lot of fun to make!

Oh, I like these!!! Thanks everyone!!! Keep looking and I'll do the same! I'm really excited and inspired to do this. I've done the cake show the last two years and have entered a non-cake category both times so this time I'm going to enter a cake for sure and I want to make it GREAT!!!!!!!!

Everyone here has inspired me to do so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would do a Monpoly game in San Diego style, Like the proerties could be Sea World, Old Town, etc. The railroads could be Petco Park, Qualcomm I think that would be really neat


edit: after writing this I thought I had seen this somewhere else googled it and found this pic

Very cool idea! My sister is in San Diego and she has the game. Maybe she could do one as well.

BTW, I live right around the corner from you, well, in Port Orchard!!!
