So, the new craze for kids are these things called silly bandz. I have a customer who is wanting to order a "silly band cake". I dont want to throw a bunch of rubber band bracelets onto a cake so I need all of your creative juices to flow. What the heck can I make for this little boy who has a love for silly bandz? Thanks for any and all ideas!
Hi I know a little boy turning 8 this weekend and he wants me to make him a silly bandz cake also. I am curious as to what you decided to do. I thought about doing a topsy turvy cake but i've never done one and after reading the "how to" Im not sure i am ready to do one. I also do not want to put plastic wrist bands all over the cake. I would appreciate your reply. Thanks. Kim
If it was me, I would either ask the bday kid what their favorite silly bandz is and make the cake in that shape OR make the cake with a solid dark background like black or navy blue and then attach a bunch of fondant shaped like silly bandz to cover all over the cake. Remember, although they are still selling them, silly bandz have lead in them. Not good for putting on something that is edible. I don't know completely how it works, but I would think it could contaminate the frosting. Good luck!
i have a friend who rolled out fondant overthe silly bandz, thenwhen she put the fondant on the cake, the bands were up. it was very cute and colorful
my son was begging for a silly bands cake....i finally talked him out of it but the cake i ended up making was more work, lol.
but when i had been thinking about it, i thought i would use the extruder and make sillly band shapes with the small single hole disc.
How about drawing out or placing the actual silly band under waxed paper and using either colored chocolate or colored flexible gumpaste to make the bands???
I don't know, the first thing that come to mind arw the pull n peel twizzlers. I know they come in different colors and they kind of have the same texture and translucentness (I know that's not a word, lol)
My daughter is wanting one also so wish me luck lol ... anyone else tired of the silly band craze
ANYWAY my idea is a topsy turvy cake with fondant girly shapes and i thought about grouping the sillybands tied together with wire so that they make kind of a firework look and stick into the cake in different places... that way she can take them off and share with the guests
hoping this will work lol
