My niece wants me to make a babyshower cake for her teacher in 2 weeks, and I would love to know how to do the top part of thise crib?
It doe say "10" cake cut in half to make the hood of the bassinet", so do I just put buttercream on the bottom so it wont fall? Because this is going to travel around 45 minutes.
Make 2 rounds (or 1 depending on how large you need it) Ice them together then cut off about 1/4th then lay on its side ... HTH
Yes - Ice under it first and if your traveling you might wanna dowel it first
it looks like its a round cut in 1/2 and put together sitting on its flat sides and then iced
I'm just scared that it will fall.. Do I dowel both if I ice together 2 ?
You definitely want to put a board under that portion of the cake and dowl under it as well as skewer through it. I had a cake that had a volcano on the side and I didn't do any of that and it totally collapsed. the extra weight on that side of the cake will cause it to split the bottom tiers and then everything will lean or worst case...fall.
Always board and dowl if you're in doubt. It never hurts!! I learned the hard way. My cake was setup exactly like this one...
