Tutorial or video on Gift Bag cake?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok, I wish there was a way of searching topics already covered in this forum because there are many pages to read through.

I have been searching for either a tutorial or a video on how to make a gift bag cake. How do I make those perfectly straight up and down sides? Is that cardboard or what? Please somebody tell me or direct me in the right direction. Or is there a video out on it?

Scrabblemomof1, sorry I've never made one, but my guess is that you would stack the cake up (like loaf size) until you get the height of the bag and that you would cover the sides with fondant. Hopefully someone out there can tell you. Have you tried pming someone who has made a bag cake? Just a thought.

Thanks for the reply. I like this site for the exchange of tips and suggestions. I saw on a few of the cake shows, they have the fondant on a piece of cardboard and they lift it up and the fondant is already hard. I am going to try letting the fondant dry overnight (or longer), then using the carboard to lift it straight up.

I recently made computer cake and now realize I should have used this method to get straighter sides of the computer tower. Oh well... u live and learn.

Anyone know if the "fondant" was a mix of gumpaste and fondant... or just straight fondant?

id use fondant with a little tylose added just to give it some stiffness. also attach with a little melted chocolate even if you iced the cake in buttercream. i find it holds the fondant better and doesn;t let it slide down.
