I don't do very many cakes anymore since I don't have a business, but I try to push myself when I get the chance. I really thought I did a great job on this one but haven't gotten any comments yet. I'm sorry if this sounds whiny, it's just that I know you guys understand the passion of decorating and the hard work that goes into it, and I was really looking forward to some feedback or constructive criticism on this cake. It's the first cake I ever tried that was standing up. Here's the link:
He is toooo cute. How do you have him standing up? I'm patting you on the back; you did a great job!
Oh my gosh! It looks just like Gingy, I kinda expect him to start talking any minute! Very cute
I used a wooden board for the base and attached L brackets, that had been hammered to about 80 degrees. Then I attached Gingy's cakeboard to an identical wooden shape and attached that to the upright of the L bracket. I torted the cake and used tiny little cardboard supports in two places with Wilton plastic lollipop sticks cut to size for the internal supports. I was surprised how sturdy he was. the only part I would have changed was that I had to use Parve chocolate instead of the Hershey looking chocolate for his "skirt". Oh, and I didn't get the skirt pieces aligned quite right.
Wow! It's perfect! LOL Love it - he's great!! You totally captured him!
Even though you explained it, I still have no idea how you got cake to stand up like that!! I'm trying my first topsy turvy cake this week for my neice's graduation party - I hope it turns out even 1/2 as good as yours!!
Thank you, LeckieAnne. I just looked at your photos and I have no doubt your topsy turvy cake will be beautiful!! I especially love your husband's grad cake- the owl is incredible!
(you're applying to take over my job on advising on internal support structures???? ya dun "that" gud! real real gud!)
I love it! That is sooo cute. Great job.
I love it!!!
Thank you everyone. Yesterday was such a depressing day for me that I really needed the lift. You guys are great and I feel so much better today!
