Hi all, I have seen some mailboxes in the galleries and have a customer wanting for her mom who is retiring from the PO... how do you get the "mailbox" shape? I know some will say carve it, but I am worried it won't be even... any pan you could think to use for the box itself?
maybe try a couple loaf pans. It shouldn't take much carving. Use a stencil and follow it to get great results. Good luck and thanks for what you do for our soldiers..
I'm curious. I've never carved a cake before. Is there a special way of doing this to make it even all over. For example, when doing a 3D cake such as a purse or something, can you use a stencil for that?
I just use the stencils to eyeball it as I carve.
If you are interested I can tell you how to make a cookie mailbox PM me if you want the info.
