My DH's birthday is coming up in less than 2 weeks. I really want to make him a slot machine cake. I am still new at this and dont even know where to start with it. I really want to try it though. Anyone make one before who can give me some advice or instructions?

I also want to try to make a gumball machine cake. I did see some pics of them in the gallery. Does anyone have any instructions or advice for the gumball machine cake?
TIA

Here's a slot machine cake I made for my Nana for her 80th birthday. It's just as sheet cake and I used fondant to make the coins and the handle was actually a spike from my Crystal Look tier set.

here are links to two suggestions (sorry can't post pic to thread!)

1) gumball cake.....

use hex or round cakes.

just multiple tiers, stacked and carved to get the slant. then a found fishbowl or other round glass bowl that closes up tight at the top (put real gum ball in it!) and then some type of topper which could be a small cake.

just be sure to put a cake board and under the bowl and support it too.

2) a laying flat slot machine -- diagram gives details

for stand slot -- just lots of layers of cake stacked and then carved (like for the gumball cake -- except these would be rectangles.

Oh! FromScratch has a gumball cake on her website. Not sure if it has instructions. I think Doug hit on the good points.


Blah blah blah Doug. icon_biggrin.gif. Hey you asked, but I refuse to disagree with ya! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

Doug, you still never seize to amaze me with your diagrams. You break things down so beautifully that even someone like me can figure it out icon_lol.gif .
