hi everyone just wondering can someone give me some tips.
i have to make a wrestling ring cake but havin difficulty deciding wat way to do the posts and ropes.
any ideas would be great
You can look at mine in my photos. I used bamboo skewers through 'tootsie rolls' of black fondant for the posts. I stuck them into the cake about an inch in from the corner, and kept pushing until they were firmly into the foam board. The ropes are just the individual strands of Twizzlers Pull'n'Peel candy. I used a little black royal icing to adhere them.
I molded Rice Krispies into the rounded posts and used skewers in the middle and push it down into the cake. I used red ribbon as the rope for the ring. I hope this helps you.
I used pretzels rods covered with black fondant. wanted to use red shoe string liquorice but only found some pinwheels that i pulled apart and hung in between the post. There is a pic of it in my photos.
I molded the posts out of fondant mixed with tylose then stuck on skewer. To keep posts steady without ripping the cake I made fondant, mixed with tylose, circles with a hole in the middle, glued it to the cake and stuck post through it. The buckles, padded thingy that holds rope on post, is made out of fondant and stuck on a toothpick. The ropes are liquorice.
thanks everyone for the help
hopefully mine will turn out as well as yers.
I made a UFC themed cake (in my photos) and used Oreo Fun Sticks for the poles.
