Credit Card Cake

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

hello ladies !

 

I run a small scale business from home (for cakes).

 

I have just received an order for a credit card cake. the person has requested for a big cake (as big as possible). I have attached a picture below.

 

I have several questions :

 

1. Do I bake a big rectangular cake or bake several small rectangular cakes and assemble them ?

2. How do I roll out a huge fondant to cover the cake ? I have never rolled out a huge fondant before.

3. How do I make the mastercard monogram ? ( I don't have to make the lion & horse monogram)

4. How do I give the silver effect (waves effect) on a black fondant ?

 

Any help will be appreciated.

 

p.s. I am in UAE and baking goods(cutters, colours etc)  are not readily available.

 

Thank you !!

I would go for the rectangular cake ( sheet cake) Perhaps the best way of doing the credit card picture - is to scan the picture into a PC, and then print it on edible printing paper. If you dont have a printer for edible imaging, some grocery stores print images on site. Another option is to go online and upload the file to a website. Company will print it and post to you. 

 

There were a few recent threads started on Cake Central - with many great responses on this topic - type  Icing Images, into the search box on CC, and I am sure that you will find the info very helpful.

 

The only website that I can think of off hand is that print edible images is  www.anycake.com . I know in the UK that the cost per picture  is approx £10.00 .

 

Good luck with the cake! Happy baking!

Hope this helps!

thnak you for your suggestion :) I took your advice and got the top printed. it looked pretty good (though I could not pipe straight lines of butter cream on the edges of the credit card).

Hi brincyle

 

So glad that you were happy with results of the printed credit card edible image for your cake.

 

Don't be too hard on yourself - piping skils improve with practice!

 

Would love to see a picture of the cake - if you have one;

Hi brincyle

 

I just read your original post again and noted that you were also looking for tips on how to cover a large cake with fondant, I posted a response with a picture attached - on this question to a Thread on Cake Central - started by ferestech 24/02/13  "I need a suggestion on how to cover a big cake"

 

You might find this and other responses in the thread of some help.

Your cake looks really, really nice! I assume you didn't just post a picture of their card!  lol :) After being the vivtim of credit card fraud I was asking my merchant services company if having taken a photo of the card would have protected me (since I don't swipe) and they told me that it's not legal to take a photo of a credit card, so this may not be the kind of cake you want to share with the world at large.

Thank you Howsweet icon_smile.gif yes I did not post the original card's picture when I asked for help, since this was a card launching event. I had to edit few things (again!) before posting the cake's picture.
