Illuminated cake base...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I saw a pic on here a couple of weeks ago that had a really think cake base that was covered in like a silky material.. but it was hollow and illuminated underneath... if that makes sense. I am going to try and do this for a wedding cake I have coming up.. but I cant seem to find the pic. Anyone who knows what Im talking about that could give me an idea of how this is done??

Thanks in advance!!

I have one in my email files. Was the fabric gathered around the base? I can email you what I have, it also has the instructions.

I was hoping to make the illuminated cake base as well for a four tiered wedding cake but have concerns as to whether the 5" cake dummy (I'm assuming that's what the instructions are referencing) is sufficient to hold the weight of a cake that tall...Has anyone had any actual experience with the base?

I am doing an illuminated cake base for my DD's wedding cake, and her cake is 5 tiers. I am using a large piece of tempered safety glass, that will be sitting on a 3 1/2' tall glass block. The lights will be in the glass block. (At least that's the plan!) icon_biggrin.gif

This is the illuminated base I was thinking about: http://cakecentral.com//gallery/1665679
My bride feel in love with the soft look of it...like the cake is floating on a cloud. I'm thinking about using battery operated tiny LED lights (I got a few sets from Save-On-Crafts) ...they don't heat up and I don't have to have an electrical cord to fret about. But now I'm intrigued with the glass block idea as well. Thanks Karen for the great idea.

The battery operated led light r nice, but double check them under the material. I used them for my snowflake cake (also purchased from save-on-crafts) wish they would have been brighter>>good luck base is lovely idea. Tulle is another great material for this type of project.
