I have a request for a Coinstar machine cake!! They want it to be a 3D replica, obviously not to scale... probably about a foot tall or so I would think. I'm not sure where to begin. Would you use square pans and stack them? I think I would have to use dowels and separator boards every third layer? I've never covered anything that tall with fondant.

Ugh.... I'm so worried about this one. I'll attach a picture of the machine.... any tips or advice is GREATLY appreciated

Ok, I ran up to the market and took a picture of the darn Coinstar machine so I could upload it!!!

Any ideas...? What size pans... how would I carve it?

Please help?!?!?

i think you are on the right track - lots of stacked squares (ok it looks rectangle based in the picture, but i wouldnt worry) with a cake board after 3 layers. maybe id do the top in rice krispies, or else just stack smaller shapes for the back.
good luck - im sure you will do great icon_smile.gif
