I am a beginner at decorating cakes. I make cakes that taste really good and sometimes look really good. I have been asked to do a "camel" as a groom's cake for a guy in the Masons. Does anyone have any simple ideas or photos of a camel cake. I need some directions please.

Thanks,

i immediately thought of this photo...

look closely -- the black camels are the shadows! great optical illusion.

sooooo

I'd make a gumpaste plaque camel that would stand up on one edge of the cake -- could decorate it w/ a fez or other Masonic regalia...

then the cake could either be a sheet cake with the shadow drawn on it

or if up for more of a challenge -- carve the sheet into the shape of the shadow.

in either event -- could even add basic masonic symbol in middle of shadow.

i thought something like my dragon cake (or one of the many dino cakes on here), make it brown with a bit of fluff and shaping, http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1346557

Hello! One idea is to use the Wilton wondermold pan to bake a couple of camel humps. Place those on a larger cake that has been carved down to be camel body, head resting on the ground. (trying to make it stand upright can be more difficult).
