3D cake-watermelon

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Do I have to use a firmer cake mix when making a watermelon shaped cake, or will the fondant hold the shape, or will it crack? I saw somewhere that someone used a base of cereal treats, is this necessary? I assumed I coud make it using a half round cake at each end and a couple rounds in the middle. Any input will be greatly appreciated!

a couple years ago Edibleart posted her watermelon cake along with good advice on how it was done. She used a pound cake. I've followed the directions and came out with a pretty good version but not as perfect as her's ...(gee, I do hope Edibleart is a "she", if not my apologies)

See the cake here:

No license or insurance. Put lead wires in cakes, never wash hands, cake boards are used cardboard. No contracts cause I can't read or write. No lawyer cause I'm judgment proof. I bake with old mix boxes found behind Walmart. Now about my question
