Hi everyone, I have to make a grooms cake in a couple of weeks and they would like me to make a replica of the grooms snowmobile. My question is, I am going to put it on a sheet cake and then carve the snowmobile, do you think it would support itself? It will probably be the size of a loaf pan, maybe a bit longer. It has to last from about Wed. to Sat. and they are driving a couple of hours with it. If someone can help with this and maybe any tips or ideas for the snowmobile it would be appreciated. Thanks
Tracey, unless this snowmobile is too tall, I don't see why to worry from structural point of view... yes, you'll have a thousand details to mold, but the cake should stand perfectly stable if you just don't try to lift it over the skies. Take a look, you may find some inspiration:
Thanks so much for your reply and yes looking at those pictures has helped inspire me, I did a google search and didn't come across those pics, they give me ideas on how I am going to pull this off Its all in the details.
If you do indeed put it on top of a sheet cake, and not just on a board like the examples in the photos, you WILL need support. Any layer on top of a larger layer needs support. Especially under the conditions you describe.
