I'm doing a scary menacing rat for this weekend and I'm trying to figure out what I want to put on the cake board. If all goes well the rat is going to be standing up, so a lot of the board will be showing. I don't want the base to be a rat cage...I'm thinking something more outdoorsy. I'd do cobblestones but I don't have that impression mat yet.
how about a floor?
A manhole cover!!!
A manhole cover!!!
I WAS THINKING THE SAME THING!! DUFF ON ACE OF CAKES DID THAT! IT WAS SOO COOL!
I don't know what this is for but if your going for a halloween theme you could make him in a grave yard. Or you could make him peaking round a log if you like the outdoorsy look. I don't know just throwing some things out there!
Dirt? Chocolate switls n chunks an cocoa powder.
Could you make the cake board look like a dirty street? Then you could put "trash" around it. Or maybe a severed finger that the rat is ready to take a bite of.
Rats = NYC subway
how 'bout a track? But I like manhole cover, too!
wow, thanks so much for all the ideas!! That really helps a lot. I like the idea of a dirty street with a manhole cover! I do remember that AOC episode.
Irene, I love the NY subway idea too. I doubt I have time to do a track as good as I would want it to be.
Ewww, that would be so funny if the rat was eating a severed finger!! I'm not sure if they want it to be gross too...or just scary. It kind of depends on how much time I have. It's due Friday night, and I originally thought I had till Saturday....so I better get going on this cake!!!
Please post a pic when your done!!
First thing I thought of was a trash can lid...
How 'bout a tombstone... RIP.... and give him some gnarly teeth lol.
Thanks again for all your help. Since my rat was dark gray I didn't want the whole board to be gray too....so I ended up making it look like the rat was standing in murky water and I did part of a manhole cover on the corner of my cake board. I didn't end up having the rat standing up. It's already pretty low to the ground so I didn't think it would be worth the time and effort to make it standing on four legs. I did make his mouth open with sharp teeth though.
I was thinking garbage heap. Like the manhole too
I'm a country girl, when she said outdoors I started thinking... you know - outdoors, not city streets. LOL!
