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".

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!

And, I remember this one on a Cake Challenge on the Food Network, but have no idea how to make it!

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.
