Hi! I wasn't sure if this would be classified as a "naughty cake" since there's no nudity or anything so I'll go ahead and ask my questions and it can be deleted if need be ^_^
So I need to make a bustier/corset cake for a bachelorette party and I havn't had nearly enough cake decorating experience. Here's my plan so far...

Bake 2 9x13 chocolate layers (for the body) and 2 bowl cakes for the "bumps", let them cool, put them together and do a crumb layer. Wrap it in saran wrap (which I'm not sure how to do). Freeze it.

When I'm ready to decorate (the end of this week probably). I planned on carving the sides while it's still frozen. Then ice the entire cake in skin colored BC frosting. I was then just going to use fondant to lay over the "body" for the bustier part.

Does this sound right? Does anyone have any tips/tricks or advice? This is my first big project like this and I really don't want to mess it up!! Thanks!

The bumps on the 9x13 need to be kind of small to fit. If you look in my photos, there's something like you're describing, except that it isn't wearing a corset. I used 2 9x13 and then the mini wonder mold pan to create that shape. It might give you a good idea of how it would look (just imagine it dressed icon_biggrin.gif ).

Mine bust cake is classified as naughty but I used an 11x15 for the body and Wilton's small ball pan (the one that you set on rings) and used a few scraps from carving it under any that hung over the 11x15 cake. I thought the preportons were great. (I used 3 mixes)

I beleive I only used one 11X15 and the small ball pans too, wasn't naughty. (see photo) I cut a flesh colored piece of fondant to fit on the top and ten covered the rest in green fondant. good luck. make sure you post a pix.
