My husband is a plumber, so I want to make a toilet cake for an office party they are having. It's still a while away, but want to get the ideas flowing. I've seen some in the galleries. Is anyone willing to give me some instructions? Especially the lid part. TIA!

I made a toilet cake out of a loaf pan it wasn't that big though because it wasn't for many people.i just cut and stacked the pieces on top of one another and iced in BC.For the bowl part I used a glass bowl and baked the cake in that to get the shape and cut the hole in the middle for the water to go.I used fondant for the lid and just cut a oval and added the details and let it dry completely.hth

I'm also making one in May and interested in my options for the lid. I do not want to waste all that fondant on the lid, so I'm looking for other options. I bought the wilton horseshoe pan for the seat. I'm still figuring out my bowl options. I don't need a big cake, so that makes it more difficult to keep it small and still look cool.

You can make the lid ahead and let it harden. That way, it would be a lot easier. If you don't have any oval pans, you can use a round pan (depends how big you want your cake to be) and then trim the edges a little bit, to form an oval shape.

If you don't want to use fondant maybe white chocolate is the way to go but it will be heavy

Thank you so much for the tips! I just wasn't sure about the lid part, and I saw so many good ones on here! I knew I could count on you all to help me out! Mine will have to be pretty big, his company has over 50 employees. I also wanted to put doodoo in it, mainly because I think it's hilarious!! Thanks again!

For the water part I just colored some piping gel blue and put a big piece of brown fondant poop in it

Wow. Not sure what else to say. I am not sure I would want to eat a piece of that cake Rylan. lol But from the decorator standpoint .. the reactions to it will be priceless.
