I am making a cake with a killer whale biting into a bigger cake. Ace of cakes did this with a bulldog too and had the whole side of the cake exposed-but I can't remember if they covered it with something??? How should I keep the cake from drying out while it is exposed to the air?
Hmmm...well, while you are figuring out how you will do the cake, make sure it is covered with plastic wrap?
They covered the bite with crumb coat and black fondant.
If you want make the bite look like exposed cake, I'd cut out the bite, ice it with your icing of choice, and then re-adhere some of the cut out cake to it, leaving some crumbs on the board for effect.
I remember that they did cover the "bite" with icing and some fondant. I like the idea of adhering some of the crumbs to the outside and the board tomake the bite a little more realistic.
Take the "bite" out at delivery? Not literally of course! OMG! i crack myself up! LOLOLOLOL~
I remember when they did this......I think that they put the cake in or around the dogs mouth!!! then they sealed off the cake with a plain icing.....
