I would like to make a Cars cake for my 3yo son's bday. I want the side of the cake to be checkerboard. After several tries I still can't get the lines nice ans straight. Any tips?? If I don't get it right I probably make it a two tier cake instead of a sheet cake. Just a whole other design...
Thanks for the help!!
Did you try measuring with a ruler to make sure the spaces are even that are to be filled in? Not sure what you mean by not being able to get them even.
Enjoy your day!
*Edited to remove word duplication. Need more coffee!
Are you using fondant ? How are you measuring your squares ?
When I did mine, I did 2x2 squares from mmf and then laid the ruler down to make sure I placed them in a straight line. HTH
Mmm. I replied but it didn't showed up. I used fondant and a cutting mat. But I think I should have used black squares on a white background. I tried to cut all squares and put them together. Make sense..?? I will try some more, his birthday is not untill December 15th, so I still have plenty of time!
Here is the one I did. http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1262344
I cut both black and white squares so it would be more flat. I attached them to the board using a little BC and let it sit out over night to harden. The board i used was an old entertainment center shelf, so it was rather large and square.
I made one awhile back, and iced the cake in white, and just did the black parts in fondant......
Gramaj, that is exactly what I was looking for. I love it. I am planning on a sheet cake with a racetrack... But how you made the side is what I had in mind... This will help me very much!
I can't believe I didn't even consider sticking the fondant straight onto the BC...
Thanks again for the help!!
