I am brand new to cake central and pretty new to cake making all together. I really enjoy doing tiered cakes, but was just asked to make a 3d cake. I have never made a 3d cake before. Can you please tell me if it is beneficial to carve the cake while it is frozen? Does anyone have tutorials on how to make an airplane cake, more specifically an F15c cake? Anything at this point would really help. Thank you so much!
i'm not sure about airplane carving, but i have carved a few cakes (see my pics) i try to carve my cakes when they are semi frozen, i find that the more firm they are the easier and less crumbs i get. good luck.
i think your best bet would be to make the plane out of ricecrispy treat and make the cake the base part, like the runway. An F15 is so slim it would have to be huge in order for you to make it out of cake,
Thank you both so much for your suggestions! I'm going to try it and see how it turns out =) I'll post a pic once it's complete. The cake isn't due until Dec. so I have a lot of time to practice.
