One of my brides would like a cake based loosely on this one, it's the shape she is after, the alternating layers of normal cake and cupcakes. I was wondering if anyone knows how this one may be constructed?
I'm thinking it was probably custom made and I could maybe do it by dowelling the first cake and then using three tiers of my perspex cupcake stand and then dowelling the next cake and so on, but if anyone has any better ideas I'd love to hear them.
Thanks so much
Hello! I recently made a cake with this same concept. I found 2 different ways to do it; The first way is very simple and cost effective and could be used depending on the size you need. I used cake drums and fondant wrapped dummies (6") and stacked them, then drove a dowel thru the entire cake. I had to assemble it all on site...it is the dinosaur cake in my photos. Another way my husband helped with by using PVC pipe and couplers (all the supplies are available in the hardware store). I haven't used this method for a cake/cupcake combo but I am sure you could. The thing I like about the dummie/cake drum option is that is is pretty sturdy and you can easily match it to your design.
I hope this helps!! Good luck!
Thanks that sounds just what I need. I love this website It's not until March next year, we're just going through the initial stages now but I will post pictures when it's done. I'm leaning towards the dummy cake I love the way it would be so sturdy.
Thanks again x
This site is the best! Good luck...it is such a cool cake concept, I can't wait to see the pictures!!
