Tutorials to build wacky cake stand?

post #1 of 76
Thread Starter 
Is there anywhere that explains in detail how to build those wacky cake stands (like on the "Last Cake Standing" or cake challenges) using piping and joints and whatever those little round stand pieces are...???

Of course nobody is going to order one and be willing to pay a ton of money for a cake like that, but I'd like to have it sort of in my mind just in case...or if I decide to make one for fun someday.

Thanks!

Funny I was wondering not how to build one but how do they disasseble those to actually eat the cake?

Cal Java has Browen's line of those stands and you can get a great idea how they are assembled just by looking at them.

They are pipes and joints with the small plates holding the cakes in place.

I got that...but wondered what holds the plates in place, and how you assemble the stand, and if you have to thread the cake totally on from top to bottom...or build the stand up as you go?

I'm really curious, too. Some of the pipes used on FN Challenges were metal pipes with the different angled joints and flanges screwed into plywood boards, and Courtney appeared to build as she stacked. But how does the cake stay in place and hang on without tearing icon_biggrin.gif . Others used the white PVC plumbing pipes instead of metal. "My" ICES chapter (SC) is sponsoring Bronwen and Francois next month for a DOS and then two days of classes. The second day is extreme sculpting, and they will talk about support systems. I can hardly wait thumbs_up.gif

Kitagirl.......................hahahahahahahaha I was online this morning searching for the same answer. Those cakes are amazing and the one bronwen had was amazing also. I loved how those cakes went so neatly up the road.

They have to get their ideas from somewhere, I know that part isn't learned in pastry school or is it?

I also would love to try on for family one day, my clients wouldn't afford to pay for one, unless of course they got it for 100.00

This is what I want to know too!!

Anybody who has ever played with Legos can put together PVC piping. It's very easy.

I just want to know how the heck the cakes sit at those angles without the cake succumbing to gravity!
