Fire truck cake

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am making my first 3D cake next weekend and I just have a couple questions. The cake is going to be 6" X 18" and about 8" tall. So I was going to bake 2 12X18 sheets, cut then in half and stack. I am going to bake them tomorrow and stick them in the freezer.
When I cut them would it be best to do when they are frozen still?
Do I wait until they are thawed before stacking?
It is buttercream filling. Once stacked should I put a few bubble straws in the cake to help keep it straight since it is tall and long?
I am also debating if I should cover the whole thing in white fondant and then add color because red is so hard to accomplish. I make my own MFF.
Thank you as always for any help! I love this site and the wonderful advice I get since I am still so new.

Hi,

It is easier to cut a frozen/very cold cake into the shape that you want it to be.

i would let it thaw out just a lil to help with condensation and then fill, stack, dowel/bubble straw it and the cut to shape.

If red is too hard for you to achieve then you should do it in white and then airbrush yr colors on,
