I would appreciate any help in learning how to make a dress form cake. The kind that looks like a dummy in a dress store! How do I get the cake into the shape of the bodice and then the skirt? Also what kind of stand do I use to support the weight of the cake on such a small support pole under the dress?
Thank you so much for any help you can give me!
I believe there is a tutorial on this site on how to do a stand up wedding dress. Look under "Articles".
This shows you about the stand.
Cakegirl, Thanks - that is beautiful! However, what I am looking for is a cake that is more on an elevated stand. I appreciate your help!
Imagenthatnj, This is closer to what I need - but I will be making it on a larger scale, with the actual cake about 24 inches tall. I think I now understand how to make the stand. Thank you!
Now, any hints on how to do the bodice?
Again, Thank you for your help!
One more from the same blog.
And, I remember this one on a Cake Challenge on the Food Network, but have no idea how to make it!
[quote="imagenthatnj"]This shows you about the stand.
This cake is stunning! Beautiful work!
Imagenthatnj, That is exactly what I want!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now to figure out the "how"!!!!!!!!
I also want to do a cake like this. I was thinking of using 12, 10,9,8 and wonder pan to make skirt and rkt for the torso. So it will be fairly big
I have no idea how to start the torso. Do I need to put a pvc pipe in the middle and mould the rkt around it? When it is done what would be the best way to attach the two parts together.
Wow! that is just what I need. Only mine will be a wedding dress.
Imagenthatnj - you rock!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for all your help! I appreciate it more than you know!
