i have seen some great photos of book cakes and now trying to do for the first time
fatherinlaw turns 80 this weekend and wanna make him a pair - he will get such a hoot out of it
any help or advice would be appreciated. do you use pans or carve out - heck dont want to end up lopsided
I make mine with a 9x13 sheet cake as the body, carve it and make the "boobs" with this pan http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001VEHZYI/?tag=cakecentral-20
Crumb coat of buttercream, then covered in fondant and decorated. I wish I had a pic to upload sorry!
I make mine out of 11x15, and use the pans that came with the bowling ball bake set, and then place them at the top and carve in the body
You could use the Wilton sports ball pan or the Wilton mini wondermold pan if you want the torpedo look LOL.
We used cupcakes for small boobs, muffins for medium boobs, and glazed donuts with cupcakes on top for extra large boobs.
I don't know if you have Pampered Chef in the U.S....but I use the large pampered chef glass measuring cup. You can bake right in it!!
I use the 3D Easter egg pans. They always turn out looking pretty close to it. I have a photo of one posted (in a bikini top).
I do mine with a 9X13 in pan with a heart pan for the boobs. I have to cut in in half and carve to right dimensions but I have made two of these and they turned out great!
I used a heart shaped pan, turn it so the point is up but cut the point part off
