Calling for all CC help!! I made a portrait to put on a cake. In a frame, HOW DO I MAKE IT STAND UP??? I have tried everything!! How do I make a stand for it!! Neek cake by Sat!!! Please help!!
I'm sorry, but I can't visualise what you're trying to do...can you give some more details please?
The cake itself is the picture and frame, or there's a picture to stand on top of the cake...? If the former, can't you just prop it up at an angle? If the latter, if you put a cake board under the frame it should support the weight. Have I completely misunderstood?
I have a shopping bag cake in my photos with a gumpaste frame...I made the gumpaste frame and a back like a real frame and let those dry, then royal icing-ed the stand to the frame and it worked great. Just like a wide piece in the back, set at an angle to the frame...just like on a real frame that you'd set on a dresser top.
If you don't have time to let one dry now, you could use a thin piece of foamcore or stiff cardboard covered in fondant to prop the frame up in the same way.
The photo is in a frame and it will sit on top of the cake..
Yes Kitagrl, just like your photo in the frame. Do you have a pix of the back?
perfect!!! thanks so much.. I have been going crazy on this!!
I think I would make a cupcake and decorate it , either upside down or rightside up...whatever you want, and lean the frame against it. You can do alot of things with the design to make it work. Or even a cube shaped small cake...hmmm how fun. I have a couple in my pics, and tried different way...leaning was best. The frame is heavy, so leave it off while moving the cake. the cupcake or cube, whatever...you can toothpic/scewer the bottom to make secure.
have fun with it!
I do like the frame in the shopping bag cake.... gonna have to try that,too.
Well, I made it thanks to all your help!! Photo uploaded. Ended up making a two sided stand. Held together with RI. Birthday boy loved it!!
Looks great...love your cakes. Thanks for posting!
