Hi,
I have been asked by hubby to make a cake for the office for Friday- for a brunch. My husband suggested a cake in the shape of " Toast w/ pat of butter." I've looked for pictures for ideas, can't find one... icon_cry.gif

Any ideas- it's for a brunch (someone's moving to another department)
I didn't want to do any bacon & egg cakes though...

thanks icon_smile.gif

I have seen cakes that looked like a stack of pancakes. Round cake with a fondant ropes around the edges and a pat of fondant butter. I think they used piping gel tinted brown for syrup over the bc.

There was a waffle cake too.
Try the search window....it is under the picture of Boween on the right of the screen.

I'm thinking two 12x2" squares. After splitting and filling, carve each square to resemble a slice of bread. Crumb coat, then ice each cake smooth in a light tan color for wheat bread, off-white for white bread. Use a sponge or some other rough-textured item to get the centers of the cake spongy looking, like bread. lie strips of cardboard across each cake for the toaster marks and airbrush or color spray a toasty brown, mostly the center, not to the edges. Remove the strips and airbrush the "crust" brown, too, to about 1-1 1/2" in towards the center. Place the first toast onto a "plate" or covered cake board. Dowel and stack the second piece of "toast" onto the first, off-center. Mold a pale yellow pat of butter from candy melts and melt some in a bag. Make a pool of melted candy for the melted butter, then place the pat in the center. Drizzle the pat with melted butter at the sides, to make it look like it is melting.
I can see it perfectly in my head. Where'd Doug when I need him? LOL

You could use a charger that looks like an oversized plate for the cake board.

Fondant would have been my first choice, but the sharp edges needed for the bread slices would be tricky. I can make a much sharper BC edge.

Can't wait to see a pic, Tynie! Be sure and let us know when it is up!
