Hi everyone! I am pretty new to cake decorating. I have only done round cakes and 1 shaped cake that was flat and easy. I am doing a grooms cake for a friend that is due in 2 weeks. The grooms cake (Red Velvet with cream cheese filling) is suppose to be a bowl filled with noodles. My question is if I fill the cake and try to shape it into a bowl, won't the filling spill out? Or am i suppose to shape the cake first then fill it??? Please help.

shape the cake and then fill it! icon_wink.gif also, it works best when you freeze the cake and cut little by little when frozen. good luck

I'm one of those that likes to start with a basic shape first. For a bowl, depending on what size it is, I'd probably use the ball pan or even the wondermold pan then there is no to very little carving. You can also bake in the pamper chef glass measuring bowls.

This is exactly what I would do. I'd use a pyrex mixing bowl and just bake it inside it. All you have to do is torte and fill then.
