I know that title subject got your attention icon_wink.gif

I won a cake competition a week ago, and I just got the cake back from being on display. Since I'm not going to eat it (Im sure it might be okay to eat, but I'd rather not!) I would love ideas on fun-ways to destroy this cake!

Its a three tier 12,9,6 covered in fondant. icon_biggrin.gif

Gimme your best! icon_smile.gif

(and, I have plenty of access to farm machinery, guns (hehe), and fireworks icon_wink.gif

what would a combine do to it?

or a harrow?

guns -- almost too easy.

fireworks? hmmm....lots of possibilities.


i say to a mythbusters type of thing


start small and keep going bigger until total demolition is achieved.

Fireworks sound fun.
Although if you have a really bad day, you could take a page out of "Office Space" and just beat the heck out of it with a bat.

I'm a big fan of the fireworks myself....

Or hitting things with hammers.

Hehe this is a fun thread!

Im thinking of hallowing out the center somehow and making a "Works bomb" (youtube it!)

But maybe I'll have my dad or DH take a tractor and see if he can stick a tine into the cake and lift in in the air and watch it drop icon_wink.gif

Must. Get. Video!

don't know if you have one on your farm...

but what would it look like going through a manure spreader?

Do you remember that scene in the movie Fargo, where the sheriff walks around the house and the guy is putting pieces of his buddy into a...

Wood chipper? LOL

Freeze the cake first, though. That'd make instant cake confetti!

Be sure and record whatever you do, and post it on youtube or wherever!

If it were me, I'd throw that sucker in the back of my SUV, over a nice thick layer of towels or canvas tarps, and take it on a test ride to see just how much abuse in the car a cake really can take before it topples, slides, or becomes a delivery disaster. I've always wanted to know just how quick can I take a turn with a cake in my car before it actually will fall.

I am so liking this idea .... fun but useful info LOL

BethLS Posted 9 Aug 2010 , 2:41pm

haha what would the fun be in that?

This cake has already surpassed my stability test....it went off-roading in the back of a jeep at the fair-grounds! And the plates and dowels worked just fine icon_wink.gif Today (its in the un-ac'd garage) the cakes fondant is starting to droop a bit (icing is melting) but this cake is OLD. lol

Thinking of maybe putting it on the spring-board and making it soar high into the lake *muhahaha*

My car is at the shop today so will have to wait till tomorrow to get it to rural country icon_wink.gif So excited to demo this sucker!
