How do I do a beer barrel cake

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I seen the beer barrel cakes that are on Cake Central. I know how to do the sugar beer bottles. What I need to know is how to do the wood planks that make the barrel. My son's 21st birthday is today but his party is Saturday so any help would be appreciated. Thanks

What I did was measure the circumference of your cake, then the height. Mix fondant and gumpaste together (equal parts). Roll it out and measure your fondant/ gumpastemix. Mark the circumference of your cake, cut it. Then measure the height and add a inch to that, cut that. Cut it into how ever many planks you wish. Take a fork and run markings iver each of your planks to gibe it the wood grain look. Let it sit out for about 2 days. Then take your brown food flooring and paint over it. Hth

Sorry about the spelling. Lol I'm on my kindle. Not food flooring its suppose to be food coloring.
