I need help figuring out how to carve a square cake into a pyramid shape for the base of an Eiffel Tower cake. Let me first say I've never carved a cake ever before, but honeslty looked at this and thought it would not be difficult.
I butchered a practice cake lastnight and feel like im totally over thinking the carving aspect. It can not be rocket science.
Here's a pic of what im ultimately trying to replicate:
I get all the other steps, I just dont understand the physical carving of the cake. I have two 8 x 8 inch squares stacked together and dont know how to get the correct angles from there.
Do I start about an inch in from the edge & cut outwards? That did not give me the trapizoid kinda look I think I should be going for.
Additionally, I want to make the tower out of RKT. Any suggestions for doing that?
