I accepted a challenge to make a giant cake for a valentines' cake dive. I think I may have bit off more than I can chew. I have a baker who is baking the sheet cakes...any tips on the best way to frost such a monstrosity in a timely manner? anybody done one of these before? What was I thinking? Help!!
What is a cake dive?
I have no idea how big this cake is going to be...but if someone is literally diving in full body or full upper body in search of something inside maybe? then I would do what the Cake Boss did on Sunday night with the huge NASCAR cake.
He had buckets of buttercream and was throwing it on, literally, by the scraperful all over the sides and top of the cake as his crew then working to spread it around.
You must post pictures of this cake!!!!
The cake dive is a valentines radition sponsored by a local radio station. 97 women qualify for a chance to "dive" into the giant cakes in search of a diamond ring. We are baking about one hundred full sheet cakes...itwill also be broadcaast on TV..I literally have been finalizing my business license this week...it is nutty...
I saw a post here or a blog somewhere about this. Basically, she decorated them at the venue by butting the cakes against each other and icing them as one large cake. I don't know how she reached the middle, though.
Wow! Sounds kinda insane and fun at the same time! Both the concept and the decorating! Good Luck
