EASY Plants vs. Zombies Cake

  This was the first time I've attempted to use fondant.  I thought things might be a whole lot easier if I used rice krispy treats as a base.  I packed in the treats pretty well.  Some posts suggested crushing the rice krispy, to keep the base from falling apart.  Mine stayed together just fine without doing that and the treats were still edible.       I made some vanilla butter cream to smooth over the treats to ensure that the fondant will lay smoothly.  I didn't want to have to move the cake once completed and decided to decorate it right on the... read more

  CLASSIC PIANO TUTORIAL By ANA REMÍGIO This was my first attempt at making an elevated piano. I’m sure there may be alternative methods for doing these steps but this was the way that worked for me.     1 - First of all, you need to do the structure to hold the cake. I used two cake boards, a round one for the base ( big and strong enough for the entire cake to sit on), and a rectangular ( thinner) one to cut the piano shape (that will be base for the piano) and the piano bench. Draw the shape of the piano onto the board and using an Xacto knife cut out... read more

How to Make a Box of Crayons Cake

By tguegirl   I've gotten a bunch of requests for this, so thought I would post instructions. First of all, all credit and many thanks goes to kiraboo for the original idea.   STEP 1 Start by stacking sheet cakes into an 11X15 rectangle (I only had 9X13 pans, and so baked three and cut them up until I got the proper size.) Make sure to bake them high enough, as you'll need some height for the ice cream cones to fit on the side. On one end, carve out a semicircle shape with three arches for the crayons. Again, be careful not to carve away too much of... read more
