I am going to be doing a cake to look like a wedding dress for a bridal shower in 2 weeks. The plan, so far, is...I'm going to use a 6" and 8" and carve the it to match the dress. I was just wondering if anyone had any helpful tips or advice on thise.

Thank you! icon_biggrin.gif

Use the wonder mold, or the mini wonder with 4" and 6" layers.

I just did a wedding dress (pic are in my photos) and used the wonder mold. My only complaint was that it looked too domed. I wish I had carved it down. I made the mannequin out of modeling chocolate several days prior and let it set up for a day then attached the bodice.

My only suggestion if you are planning on using a 6 and 8 inch pan is that you may not get enough height if you just use the two cakes.

It was fun to be a dress maker for the day!! icon_smile.gif

I"m sorry, that last post just didn't make a lot of sense did it? lol anyway, what I meant was that I won't be using a doll or anything to put in the coset. do you think if i went with 2 6" and an 8" that it would be tall enough. she just stressed she didn't want it to look "girly" she wants elegant. she even asked if i was talented enough to do a corset. ha ha, so i smiled and said yes. ; )

I think so. It all depends on the height of you cake. You may find that just the two is enough, but you won't know until you assemble them. How many people are you trying to feed with it or is it just a centerpiece?

The wonder mold pan has a serving size of 10-12, so you may not have enough if you are going to follow that pattern. Since you are using the round pans, you may get a few more, but remember you will be carving it down.

Just an update...the bride called to say not to do anything on the cake, she may be postponing the wedding. So, now (I know the clients) she's probably going to call on Wednesday to say to go ahead and I'll have to say no for time purposes. : (
