MY SON WIL TURN 22 IN APRIL. HE WANTS ME TO MAKE HIM A CAKE IN THE FORM OF A HAND WEIGHT OR A BARBELL CAKE. ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO DO IT?
VISUALS WILL BE GREAT, THANK YOU
id say do some kind of base cake, square, round, whatever, in a colour he likes, and do rice krispie treat weights, with some skewer or something to act as the bar.
if you do the weights as cake, then it means a lot of carving. id make a square or rectanlge, and cut that into strips. then stack and support.
seems easier, and like youd get more cake/ value for money doing the first way... depends what you feel up to doing.
I would say use your 8 6 & 4" round pans for diffrent size weights cut a hole in the center of them put diffrent weight sizes laying off to the side on the cake board, with the larger cakes 8" place a Wilton white dowel in between covered in fondant. Use a weight from his collection to do the details. Hope this helps...
Thank you for all your great ideas! will be trying it soon
