My sister's birthday is on Wednesday and she is really into photography... She wants me to make her a cake. I was thinking of making an 8 inch round with a camera sitting on top. I haven't made a carved cake yet and have no idea how to place the camera cake on top of the 8 inch round??? Does the camera portion even need to be supported? It will be covered in fondant... If so- how?
yes the camera part would need supported - you will have to use a cake board to sit under the cake, and a couple of dowels in the 8 inch to support it, and thats all. just like a regular stacked cake really.
although you could also make the camera out of rice krispies, would be lights, although i would still support anyway.
Should I carve the cake board to match the shape of the camera cake?
yep the board should be the same shape as the cake. possibly slightly smaller as there wont be a border to hide it!
Thanks for your help!
