I have a wedding cake coming up that will be the Stanley Cup.

I am wondering what you think would be the best way of doing the bowl on top. There seems to be design and some wavy ridges around the bottom.

The bride wants the bowl and cake to be ivory with silver trim. Cornelli lace around the top of the bowl and every other tier. Cornelli lace done in silver with the icing ivory

If it were me i would do the bowl with chocolate and to get the wavy lines I would line the bowl with saran wrap but messy like so it was not smooth if u get me. But that's just me and I'm no pro.

Hmmm.....those wavy lines do not look intentional to me. They look exactly like pp says they were probably formed, and maybe not amoothed out afterwards to get the smooth look desired. Or am I hockey trophy dumb???

The real Stanley Cup has wavy lines on the bowl.

The Stanley Cup is supposed to look that way because of the design. Try laying fondant on a bowl and use you tools to make the lines. Let it dry and you have a cup.

Haha Jamie, you are not. I actually had to do some research to figure it out.

Thanks...my actual thought was to use gumpaste and leave it wrinkled some to give the wavy lines in it.

I have some time to get it right. Thanks for your help
