Im not sure if there is a pan, but I just carved a sheet cake, and added two 1/2 ball pans.

Thats what I did too. It is so easy. Mine in my photos is carved from 12x18 and the 2 half ball pan. If you have any questions just let me know.

I've done something similar (except with no corset) and it was just a 9x13 and two mini wonder molds, then carved a bit. To make sure I got it all even on the sides, I cut a pattern from waxed paper and set that on top of the 9x13, cut out the shape and rounded the edges, then put the small cakes on top, no cardboard underneath the small ones.

I did the same as the others listed above, mine was also a 12x18 sheet. Carving is the easiest part. icon_biggrin.gif Just think of an hourglass. Cover it all in a crumb coat, then cover with fondant and smooth. I have some pictures of the one I created. There are stages as to creating the corset included in my photo. icon_redface.gif

Dummy me, but I am assuming you are discussing the stand up corset cake...right??? Why would you use a sheet cake instead of a round cake then carve? Does the sheet cake give you more play room?

Wow yours is excellent! I have seen one on here too where someone has just used a heart tin and cupcakes ontop, I suppose it wouldnt be as full as yours but It did look ok, what do you think?

If you don't have the ball pan, you can bake in a bowl instead icon_biggrin.gif

I made one that didn't need to feed a lot of people so I used a 9x13 and then shaped rice krispy treats. It worked out well that way because the spouse of the person the cake was for wasn't really a cake person so they got to eat the rkt.

I used 2 heart shaped cakes with the bottoms cut off and then used the wonderball molds for the "boobs".

The stand up corset cake is usually used as a top piece for a wedding cake or Bridal Shower. Use the "flower pot" pan or method. Bake two, invert one (top down) put the other on top of that one bottom to (bottom) top. It should look just like an hour glass. thumbs_up.gif No carving necessary, or if you are a good carver, make a 4 layer round cake and carve out the "Waist". Crumb coat and cover and smooth. The corset is usually fondant, although if you are good enough (not me yet) you could probly do it all out of bc. The laces were the most challenging. I am currently working on this very cake. When I get done I will post the picture. Good Luck. Post yours too. icon_lol.gif

I just done one (in my photos) using te 9x13 sheet cake, carved. I then molded the boobs from cupcakes and wrapped a piece of cake scraps around each boob b/c I don't have a dome shape that small. However, before I do it again, I intend to get some sort of dome shape or bowl to bake in. That would have saved some time! Overall, though, it was a realitvely easy cake to do!

The mini wonder mold pan works perfectly for the boobs on a 9x13 sheet. Keep an eye out for a hobby lobby coupon or a michaels coupon and the pan is pretty cheap.

Oh, I was thinking a stand up corset. I see the sheet cake for on laying on top of another cake or just laying down. Apologies for the confusion.

Thanks! I was just at Michael's and I looked for it(mini wonder mold pan), but I think they must have been out- go figure, since I have to drive 65 miles to get there! Thanks for letting me know that they do indeed carry it- now I'll be sure to keep checking with them!
