I had a request for a groom's cake that looks like a strip of bacon. Any suggestions on making it look more realistic than cartoonish? I was thinking perhaps strips of fondant, but other than that, I'm at a loss.
If it's going to be a cake that looks like a giant bacon slice, it may be hard to get away from that cartoonish feel. Maybe use some piping gel to give it that "shiny/greasy" look? Good luck!
Thanks for the suggestions! I think I'll try icing, rather than fondant.
Wow anabelz01 those pics are awesome. sweigl make sure to post pics of your cake when you finish. I would love to see it.
cheers dmhart... I found one of them on cake wrecks under the heading 'eat with your eyes closed' which made me chuckle! I've not yet had an utterly weird cake request myeslf.. can't wait till I do! hehe
I'll post a picture when I make this cake - it's not till Oct, though! I'm trying to figure out how I'd do it so that I can work up a price.
