Good Morning all. I am a recreational decorator and my son has decided he wants his cake in the shape of a Segway because they are going to see Mall Cop for his birthday party. Well, mom is stumped icon_confused.gif , so I thought I'd ask for some guidance from all of you wonderful people. Here is a link to the segway site so you can see what I'm talking about.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Does he want it 2D or 3D?

For a 3D cake, how about if you make 2 8x3 round cakes and a small rectangular cake. the round cakes can be up on the sides, supported by swewers or dowels and the rectangular can be angled with a cake board and attached with dowels or skewers. if you are nervous about stability, you can always cut the round cakes in half and then put back together supported by a cut cake board and more dowels. Just a thought. the handle can be made from formed rice crispy treats.

3D for sure! I was thinking of having my DH build a wood platform with short legs for the base. I like the idea of rice krispie treats for the handle, maybe even for the base and then only having the wheels be cake. Hmmmm. This might actually be fun.

Thanks for the help.

I'd just make the handle of PVC pipe covered with fondant or candy melts.

I was thinking the same thing. That would be the easiest way. I'd probably do fondant so I could get it smooth.
