My best friend just bought a house for the first time in her life. I want to make her a cake to celebrate, but I can't think of anything to do. Now I have only been seriously decorating for about 9 months- a year so I don't know how intracate i could get on the frosting work. But does anyone have any ideas? Please help. Her housewarming party is July 4th weekend!
Maybe you could do a 4th of July theme? Make some explosion looking swirls and starburst shapes on the cake and write something cutsey on it? About starting off in her new home with a "bang" or something? Or if you have the wilton stand up house pan you might do it on a sheet cake and do red and blue borders and shells? Just a couple of suggestions.
I like the idea of the 3D house cake, bt I don't have the pan. Is there another way I might try it? I'm going to practice tomorrow night.
Do you have any square pans, or what is the largest circle pan you have?
I have 9" round pans and 10" round springform pans. I have a 10" square pan. I'm still working on collecting my pans. All are 3" deep. Any ideas?
You can use a sheet pan and cut it into a house, nothing fancy just cut the top corners (tringles). Frost it and draw a the details- windows, doors and on the bottom part you can put nice flowers. Sounds simple enough.
I made a small house b4 without a pan ...also you could do a house sheet cake. by baking one rectangular cake then taking a square cake and cutting it diagonally so the you have 2 triangles, then put the cut edge on the top of the house to make a roof. It would work to make 2 squares as well. Then cut the one to make a roof.
As someone who has recently moved, I immediately thought of a huge pile of moving boxes and packing paper. I think you could cut smaller squares out of your large square pan and do something like that.
I like all the ideas!
I did a gingerbread house last summer for a client whose sister was getting a new home...as week after giving brith to twins too!
thats a really cute idea too!
Wow! That cake is beautiful! I don't think I'm anywhere close to being that talented!
Wow!! Those cakes are unbelievable!! I wish I was that talented.
