I have a cake that they want me to make a bra. the last one I did I wasn't too impressed with but I just "winged" it. Please help me in getting it down right. How do you make a bra?

I just cut the "cups" in to what ever shape I want them, usually rounded on bottom and straight line slant on top, and then dry it over a bowl in the shape I want it. I've heard icee cup lids are perfect for this.

I'll trim if I want to, and add the straps after it is dry.

thank you so much! Do you know if there is a pattern for cutting out the bra anywhere?

I recently made lingerie cupcakes and in my research on the internet came across this Wilton thread. Hope it helps..

I've never used one. I just cut one and lay it on the bowl until I like the fit then use that one to cut another.

Sometimes it is easier to go trail and error than spend forever looking for a pattern. I did that when I was going to do a zebra cake. Spent an hour looking for a zebra pattern I could use, then ended up freehanding it in the end. icon_smile.gif

I recently made a bra cake and used a styrofoam ball as my "mold" just covered it with plastic wrap first - hopefully you can see the pics
