I need a little help fihuring out how to do a GLOBE cake. Can anyone give me some pointers on how to stack and carve to get a sturdy round shape?
I want the overall size to be about 9 to 10 inches.
Thanks for your help!!!
The best way to get a round cake (and have it remain sturdy), is to make the bottom half out of styrofoam, and put layers of cake on top of that. This is the only way that I've seen 3-d round cakes assembled. Here's a link to a tutorial for a cherry cake:
This is almost the same concept, except you would not need the hole in the top for the stem. Hope that helps, and good luck!
I was going to suggest using the Wilton sports ball pan, but I'm not sure it would be big enough: http://www.wilton.com/shapedpan/Sports-Ball-Pan-Set
Yes, JGMB I had thought about the sports ball pan but it is just too small. But the link ChoueiriCakeCo provided on the Cherry Cake is a perfect idea and exactly what I am going to do.
Thanks so much to both of you for helping. You have no idea to crazy ideas I was entertaining!!!!!
Have a great weekend.
