Hi! I have been asked to create a cake to a 'hat's off' theme. I want to make the hat suspended above the main cake, like it's being 'tipped' if you know what I mean. It's a zoo-themed cake, so an elephant trunk would be holding & 'tipping' the hat.
I've searched & searched, & I've found lots of topsy-turvy & wedge type tutorials, but I don't want to have to hide anything under the hat. I want the support to be in the elephant trunk & the cake to have nothing under it. Am I making any sense here? I'm trying to copy the picture of the invitation. It's for a big honor that our zoo director won, so that's why the 'hat's off' theme for the awards ceremony.
So I'm thinking some kind of L-bracket? Ugh---I wish I'd gone to school for structural engineering. Who knew it was necessary for cake decorating?!?
