Shotgun Shell

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a request for a cake that looks like a shotgun shell. I only found one on this site, and have searched everywhere. None to be found. I'd like to show several to the client, in order to give her an idea of what can be done. I'd appreciate any help on this, along with "how to".

And actually, when you've seen one shotgun shell you've pretty much seen them all...

Although another option would be to put the shell on its side.

Hum - this is not a cake, but if you take a look at Earlene Moore's website she makes some awsome shells. Perhaps you could redesign the cake around these shells?

I also have a request for a shotgun shell cake.  I would like to lay the cake on its side.  The bride doesn't like fondant so we are using buttercream.  Is there a way to lay the cakes on their side and not split apart (if I put multiple round cakes together) or am I gonna have to stack sheet cakes and carve them?  I am blank today on how I need to go about this.  I also have to travel 3 hours for the wedding and I am making the wedding cake as well.  Thanks!!

Hmm. The general shape of a shotgun shell suggests a jelly-roll to me.

 

What? The BRIDE?? A shotgun shell WEDDING cake? Is that supposed to be a commentary on the circumstances of the wedding?

Actually the shotgun shell is the groom's cake and I am making the wedding cake as well.  They own some type of ammo shop so that is the reason for the shotgun shell cake!

At any rate, I stand by my assertion that a large jelly roll (or something very much like a jelly roll), perhaps with some sort of support to keep it perfectly cylindrical, would be the most obvious structure for a shotgun shell cake. And "on its side" would work better with a rolled cake anyway (as well as getting the proportions more realistic).

Excellent idea (especially since gravity will win with layers on their side)!
