Could someone help me with a cake in the form of the breast cancer pink ribbon?
I need it for a corporate morning tea to raise money for this month's breast cancer awareness.

Hi Luraleigh,

I need some ideas about what tins to use for the ribbon shape.
Then I need a recipe for the amount of cake battter to use. I make cakes from scratch.

Wilton has the ribbon cake pan. I bought one recently at Hobby Lobby. I believe it is a one cake mix pan. I have not used mine yet.

HTH!!

gcc - wilton has a ribbon shaped pan, it's available at michaels. you can cover it in fondant or star tip... it's quite nice and applicable for a lot of different functions.

wilton makes a ribbon shaped pan

for a larger cake: -- bake the horseshoe pan and a long loaf pan. then cut the long loaf pan and add to ends of horseshoe to get the ribbon shape.

I am making one for a door prize at the Breast Cancer Golf Tournament on Saturday but I bought the ribbon pan to bake mine in. I plan on frosting it with pink buttercream and putting darker pink roses on it and trim it with a shell trim or rosettes. Haven't decided yet. I am also making cupcakes for the luncheon and thought I would make them strawberry with pink buttercream using the 1M tip.

Try looking here for some ideas:

Thanks all,

Luraleigh...I am in Australia and haven't seen a ribbon tin here.

jillchap... thanks for the fondant and star tip suggestions, nice ideas.

Doug ... the horseshoe tin might be a good way to go, thanks for the sketch too.

lionlady di...thanks so much for your suggestions and the link gave me some good ideas too.

GCC,
I think Dougs idea is a good way to go if you don't have access to the ribbon shaped pan. My daughter Melissa was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago at age 41, so I want to thank you for doing this very special cake. It touches my heart. My daughter is doing quite well at this time, no cancer cells found in any of her tests, and she has just entered nursing school.

Hi Shirley W,

Thanks for your comments. It's the least I can do.
This is my second year taking part in the breast cancer awareness campaign. Last year we did only breakfast dishes, so cakes weren't asked for. (Can you picture pink scrambled eggs? )


My heart goes out to any family dealing with this most awful diagnosis.
I'm glad your daughter has had a reprieve and hope she continues to do well in her nursing.
