I need (want) to make a cake in the shape of a Washer and Dryer (side by side). I'd like to cover it in MMF. But I'm not sure how to start cutting out the shapes.

Any Ideas?

make 2 separate cakes side by side with little tiny gap in between

cut sides of each as one long continuous piece. so if the cakes are 4x4x4 then you need 2 strips of fondant 16x3.75 for the sides. purposefully short so the top piece can overlap and have the the little seam like on most w/d.

then you cut top piece that is 4.5x4.5 -- nip out a 1/4x1/4 square at each each corner so can fold over easily with out excess to trim away

center on top, fold edges over and seam it all together.

detail out (doors, knobs, etc)

I had to read that 3 or 4 times before I could picture it in my head... but that sounds like a good idea! I guess I'll bake a rectangle cake, then cut four squares out. The washer and the dryer can each by two layers high, I think that would be proportional.

And I could detail it with MMF cutouts, or buttercream...

hmm.. sounds good! thanks!
