True to form I have cake block, can any1 help with a competition cake?
I am wanting to do a novelty 1st anniversary cake.....this is where it gets difficult.......I want to do a 10" cake on a 12" board the idea is 1 corner represents the wedding day , the next corner is the honeymoon, next 1st baby or 1st home, then final corner raised above the others showing 1st anniversary. Each corner is going to be raised above the previous one. Thing is whereI can't quite work out how to do it........am I going to over the top? Rules state that the anniversary being celebrated has to be clear to the judges.Dummy cakes permitted everthing 100% edible.
Any help would be greatly recieved.

I made a few cakes with 4 different squares like that. Check out these pictures and see what you think. It's a really easy technique that looks so cool, in my opinion.

I have a question. Now, granted, I do not have a degree in cake-ology, but how can dummy cakes be accepted if everything must be 100% edible? just....just wondering.... icon_razz.gif

BTW, I do love the stepped look. I may borrow it for my daughter's graduation..

I know what you mean ,I thought it strange that you use dummy cakes.......when I started college me being totally new and couldn't even cook a cake thought it was something that I would learn, but we use them on all our cakes a college.......strange but handy.

Thanks for sharing the pictures of your cakes, luv2cake!

I've been trying to think of how to do grandson's high school graduation cake (wanting to show different stages of his life or different interests he's explored). Now I know EXACTLY what I'm going to do!
