I have been asked to make the "deer head" cake for a grooms supper. I have found many cool ones and have attempted to contact those "cake artists" on how they went about making them. So far no luck. Does anyone have some instructions or suggests on how to get started. Like pan sizes and stacking. How about which tips to use for decorating. Here are a couple that I like.

I wonder if those are just a bunch of 9x13 pans stacked and then carved to form the deer's head. The antlers are probably gumpaste.

Hopefully, someone will come along and help you figure it out!! Good luck!

Sherirose, if you want to let others know how to make your cake, and don't want to be sending the instructions all the time, you can put them in a thread titled something like : Deer Head Cake Tutorial.
A link here in this thread, and perhaps on your picture's page, will make it much easier on you.

I have the info and would be willing to post it to a thread.....just don't know how. I have been forwarding the instructions to those that have asked for them.

Just go into "How Do I"; click on "new topic". A page will come up with a typing box just like the normal reply box. Type your words there, hit 'preview' to check, and then post reply.

Is the information in pictures instead of (or in addition to) text? There is an 'add attachment' bar just below the typing box. Click on it and an additional box will open below to let you go find and add your pictures. Be aware they will post in reverse order. Image
If they're too large they can be shrunk at http://www.shrinkpictures.com/

When posting a new topic, you have to click the 'watch topic for replies' phrase down on the bottom left, it won't let you know otherwise.... They never have been able to get it to notify you automatically.

Please let me know if I didn't make something clear.
Good luck

You're welcome. Glad to help.
If you PM a moderator, they can make it a sticky at the top of the forum with the other instruction threads so it doesn't get lost.
