I have an order for a mortgage burning cake. They want it to feed 150 and be three layers with filling! Now, I am trying to find some good ideas for this massive cake. Any ideas out there?
What about being topped with a roll of fondant that is made to look up like a rolled up peice of paper and have a fondant lighter with flame touching the paper? You can put a ribbon around the rolled up fondant that says 'mortgage'
That is a great idea. I need to practice with fondant. I have never worked with it before. It is intimidating to me for some reason. Thanks for the suggestion.
Maybe this is what I need to get over my fear of fondant.
Or you could do fondant in the shape of a piece of paper and use diluted black coloring to paint the title "Mortgage" on the top (get out your own mortgage for reference!! lol) and then just do some painting to replicate typing down the rest of it....then take bc and pipe on some flames at the bottom of it in red/orange/yellow...all on top of a sheet cake.
Better yet, you could do an edible image of the mortgage and then pipe on the bc flames!
Just some jumping off points....HTH
I have thought that I would make the top of the sheet cake look like the actual mortgage... and then put the black edges around the entire thing to make it look like it had been burned?
I don't know.... I am stuck on this one.
I like the flame idea. I will have to do some thinking on this one.
Maybe the top of the cake could be the mortgage and the sides all flames???
I really like your idea of the top of the cake being the mortgage and the sides looking like flames. You are going to have big sides to work with--so you had best cover them with a main part of the cake.
Can't wait to see pics!
That sounds like a good idea too...and very easy to do, not too complicated. Good luck!
What about a bonfire w/ pretzel sticks with icing as the fire & have the fondant mortgage sitting on top of the fire? You could even do fire around the edges on the cake too.
Awesome ideas! I am hoping to finalize the order in the next couple of days. I will let ya'll know how it goes!
Is it possible to make this three layers with filling? I have never done that many layers before?
Don't see why not--that's going to be a very big cake, though.
That is what I was thinking! I think it is going to be very difficult to transport. It is for the owners of the company that I work for... so it needs to be perfect.
Nothing like some added pressure
What a great idea for a cake!! That's what I love about this site!
Another idea would be to have two cakes - different favors - that will help with the size of the cake. You could have one with the name of the company and the other with the mortgage burning.
Can't wait to see the pictures.
