Hi all,

I am greener than green in making cakes, but I am trying my darnest. icon_smile.gif

Anyhoo, I need some help. My DD is turning one in August and I would like to make a crayon cake. I have found a bunch of cakes of "box of crayons" but can't really find a design for just one big crayon and I am not sure on where to start.

The reason for the cake is that for about 5 months now i've been telling her every possible way to stay away from her sister's crayons. She just simply LOVES to eat them. So I would like to make a crayon that I don't have to scold her for eating. KWIM? icon_lol.gif

So if anyone has any ideas on where to even start, I would really appricate it.

TIA

Sue

Hi and Welcome to CC, Autoemesiss. icon_smile.gif

Everything you ever wanted to know about making your first tiered cake:
(Lots of good info for making and using b/c and fondant.)

Crayon cakes from the CC gallery:
(Does have a few single crayon cakes.)

The easiest way to make a single crayon would be to make a suitable size sheet cake which you would cut (the long way) in sections to be filled and stacked. (If using a 13x9x2, cut in half. Might need to make several cakes for more servings. Be sure to use cakeboards [cut to size] for every 4" of cake.)

Then cut one end to look like the tip of a crayon!

Depending on how realistic you want to make the cake... You could make a larger cake and carve the stacked sides/top into a rounded shape.

Welcome! You can make a jelly roll cake, cover it with fondant, and use an ice cream cone for the tip. There are directions in one of the Wilton yearbooks, but I can't get up and look right now cause I have a sleeping baby on my lap icon_smile.gif

I can tell you it's either the 2005 or 2006 Yearbook, I bought both on ebay for under $10. Also, the Cupcake Fun! Book has instructions for Crayon cupcakes... Good Luck!

That Wilton crayon cake is so cute. I'd never have thought of something so SIMPLE icon_smile.gif

My DD also is a crayon eater...and she's 2! I have to watch her like a hawk...otherwise she's banned from crayons (she's allowed colored pencils only).
