I need to construct a 3D slot machine cake for around 60 people -- I'm fine with everything except how to actually construct and carve the shape -- Anyone have any helpful ideas??? Thanks!
for this one I baked 2-12x18 cakes, cut them in half and stacked them one on the other, that is the entire bottom square portion, the top slanted part is rice krispie treats (I also did one a month ago, but didn't get the photos yet......had to borrow a camera, whole big thing lol) and used carved styrofoam for the top. Without the top being cake the cake served 100 easily!
Then I assembled the whole cake and made a paper template of each side in sections and used that template to cut fondant, put the fondant on in pieces and then used royal icing to "caulk" the edges. Then I used americolor gels to paint all the designs on
to make one laying flat, try this.
(12x18 cut into 2x2 pieces serves 54)
WOW Doug!!!!!!! You are the BOMB!!!!!!!!!
