I have a request for a hot air balloon cake in primary colors that is made out of fake cake to be used as a center piece. The mom's only specs/request are primary colors and a hot air balloon. Her budget is between $50 and $75. Rest is upto me to decide..
I am thinking of a 4 or 6 inch square for the bottom. My question is, how can I make the balloon? Can I carve a styrofoam? Or maybe get a round foam ball and work with it? Has anyone been there, done that? Any experiences?
I have seen some threads on cakecentral for hot air balloons but not precisely what I am looking for.
On the same note, how do you price dummy cakes? It is the same amount of decorating time involved..
