I need some help with the cakes with wheels and or legs that have some space under them. Like a skate board or toy truck etc..... I know it involves foam core board but I just don't see how to get the lift and support to keep it all together.
Anyone have a tutorial? Maybe youtube?
When I did my firetruck cake, I bought styrofoam (1" thick I think) and cut it about an inch (on each side) smaller than the board the truck was sitting on. I used royal icing to glue the styrofoam to the base board and then more royal to glue the cake board to the styrofoam. I made sure the royal had at least overnight and all the next day to dry before driving with it.
I hope that helps!!! Good luck with your cake!
Is foam core strong enough to hold up most cakes?
If I was doing a skate board would I just run a support from front to back? If I use dowels how are they anchored?
1/2 in foam core (either single sheet or two 1/4 in sheets GLUED together is more than strong enough)
run solid support lengthwise like on right side of diagram.
to anchor dowels -- screw and glue w/ wood or just glue (hot melt) on foamcore
