I'm not so sure of all the detail, but I think you'd want to start w/ 2 bundt pans. This way the coach will have a pumpkin shape.

Are you planning to make the horses too? Or will those just be plastic figurines?

I made one as part of a Fairytale Castle wedding cake set-up last year.

I used the sports ball pan set (3D) and followed the instructions in Debbie Brown's 'Fairytale Cakes' book, adapting to my needs. The cake with the sports ball would only serve 16 max, but you could use pyrex bowls instead to make it a bit bigger if needed. I can scan and send the instructions for you if you pm me your email address icon_smile.gif

cute! No no horses. I have found the instructions in the Debbie Brown book. Mice will be used I think. I need to find a pan. I think the Bundt pan would not be round enough. The ball pan I need to buy. Crazy I dont have one yet but I havent needed one.

I made one once, but just a heads up.... I used to much buttercream under the fondant, and the weight of the fondant pulled the entire thing down...... it was "okay" and the lady that ordered it, really liked it, but it definately 'sagged".............. OH, and don't be afraid of the bunt pan.... it would serve more people, and certainly looks like the coach..... you need TWO cakes though..... one for the bottom and one for the top.... look at the pumpkin cake in my photos and see what you think..... GOOD LUCK !!

I did get them but Thank you. I would love to get more of her books I LOVE them all. (Well with the exception of the naughty one.)
Any scans would be great I'll pm you. Can I ask what you charged? Having never made the cake I am not sure of the hours involved.
And as far as pans go isn't the sports ball pan a little round one? I thought there was like a big soccer ball pan or something. Hand on I'll go look......


I'm back
Ok the sport ball only hold 2 1/2 cups of batter The Soccer Ball Pan holds about 4 1/2 cups. so about would the Soccer ball be enough?

In the 2009 Wilton Yearbook they have instructions on how to make a coach cake, page 100, made with their new Large Pumpkin pan. They say the finished size of the cake is 6.75" x 6" using 10 cups of batter. HTH icon_smile.gif

grandma_j: I love your pumpkin! and your right it does look like a coach.
