I found these cakes in the bridal shower gallery. I've been asked to do a cake for a friend of a friend's shower and I'd like to do one of these, but I honestly don't know where to start. I've taken the Wilton classes 1 and 2 but not 3...how would I go about doing these cakes? Can anyone share how these might be created? I can do basketweave, no problem, but know nothing about the satin ice or whatever it is nor do I know how in the world to make a corset cake, what pans I would need, etc.

Help??

for the corset shapped one, it looks like 2 heart shaped cakes, with the tips cut down a little bit, with . . . . . . . it might be wondermold pan . . . cakes for the boobs? there are several in the galleries and I know some of them have shape/size pan information with them. Good luck, these are really cute cakes!!

The 2nd one is 2 heart shaped cakes and 2 mini doll skirts (or possibably 1/2 balls) cakes put together.
The hearts are put on a board point to point (the points are cut off some so it fits together better). The 1/2 cakes/minis are place on top of one of the hearts and all iced w/b'cream.

the top one is just 2 layers of round cakes w/a cut to shape teddy probably cut form rolled out fondant.
Though hard to tell looks to me like the sides of the round is covered w/the same 'squiggles' used on the top of the 'teddy'. (The squiggles are an attempt to do cornelli.)
If yhou need more info just ask.

For my corset cake, I did a 12x19 sheet cake and then 2 small ball cakes for the boobs. Just carve the sheet cake like a waist! It's in my photos...good luck!

I made mine using a 12x18 sheet and the ball pan size. I just carved out the shape of the body. It was super easy. Mine is all buttercream smoothed. Good luck and post pics!

lvspaisley, I just pmed you about the pink corset. I am not at home right now but when I do go home I will post the other cake I did. Satin ice is pretty easy to work with, just like your normal fondant but taste better than Wilton fondant.

I added the cake I did with the corset, its blue and black in my photos. Something similar to what you were looking for. All buttercream. I used a 12x18 sheet and I used the ball pan.
