I have to do a bodice/bustle cake and I wanted to know if anyone know where I can get a cake pan or have any suggestions on how to do them. I'm now sure I can carve the cake correctly without the cake pan.

I have never seen a pan. Draw a pattern on parchment, lay it on the cakes and carve.

Hi, I recently did a Bodice cake... It is in my gallery. I used two cardboard heart that I drew. I put them over the cake and carved. Then I cut off the point on both and laid them point side together... then I used my sports ball pan for the boobs. Hope this helps.

Hi, I did one and I used a THICK 11x15 cake for mine. I used cupcake tops for the breasts. I cut a curve in each side. and buttercreamed the whole thing. Take a little off at a time until it looks right. Then I covered my in fondant sections. First time doing it and it turned out great....go take a look at my photos! Good luck!

I have one in my gallery too that I just did in June for a friend's 30th birthday. All I did was use the sports ball pans, and the cake scraps were used to form out the abs.

I used Wilton's mini wonder mold pan for the two bodacious breasts and baked an 11" x 15" sheet cake for the body. I found my electric carving knife, that I've had for years and never normally use, to be a big help in the carving of the body. I used butter cream icing because I knew that would be easier for me to make a nice smooth looking lab coat and curves over the breasts. I hope my attachment to this will come through. Note how you will need to make cleavage to make it look realistic. Good luck. (This cake was my first attempt at making a bodice cake.)
