I have a request for a T-Rex cake. The customer said I could just do the head, since it's only to feed 25.
I have an idea for modeling a large gumpaste T-Rex head, and placing it on a square or rectangle sheet cake, slightly smaller than the head, but I can't figure out how to combine the two.
How should I decorate the square cake, to make it look normal to have a T-Rex head sitting on top?
She wants it to look more real than cartoonish, since her son loves the scary teeth and the scary look of the T-Rex.
BTW, I posted this in another forum, and just realized it should probably be here. Sorry about that!
I think it would be hard to use the square or rectangle as is and make it look cohesive. Maybe if you rounded off the corners and made it look like the T-Rex's shoulders/body, might work out a little bit better.
You could maybe make it look like the T rex head has just smashed through something....?? Or is coming through the tropical plants somehow?
Can't wait to see what you come up with. My son LOVES dinosaurs!
I did a t-rex head from rice krispie treats and put it onto carved round cakes. It might be more cartoonish than you're looking for though. It's in my photos.
