Not to pat only my back but all you CCers because without your insights AND shared mishaps this would never have been possible.

Someone mentioned they wanted to see the pvc armature. Well, here it is...

@Chala86: Sure you can!

Go to Home Depot and buy the PVC pipes, flanges and mdf board.
Make a lot of RKT and modeling chocolate.
Of course bake the cake and buttercream.
Assemble your armature. Assemble your cake within the armature. Then wrap the armature with RKT, make sure to use all your strength to compact it as much as possible. Cover in modeling chocolate. This will give it extra strength. I also at times had to put saran around some places (i.e., torso) so that the modeling chocolate would stay put until it dried hard. Smooth. Cover in fondant. Smooth. I airbrushed the lines but I think in hindsight painting with a brush and gel colors would have made for cleaner lines. Then...voila!

It is amazing, I was one of the people who asked for the picture so thank you for posting it icon_smile.gif not that I would even attempt to recreate it haha. I must remember not to let my 4 year old sit next to me while I'm on the computer or he will no doubt demand it for his birthday in September too! How long did it take you to do?

@jennifercullen: It took me three days where the decorating would go into the wee hours of the morning. And the final day I did not sleep.

@Charmed: I made the RKT without butter.

So which parts exactly are cake and which parts RKT?
How did you add the cake? Cakeboards?

Would you perchance have any of those photos?

An awesome cake

oh and how much cake did you bake and how much RKT were needed? How many did this cake serve?

Hey all,

The total cake baked was two half sheets stacked with a cake board dividing the layers then trimmed to fit proportionately. The cake sat on a board then a bed of RKT and there was a board dividing the cake from the RKT on top. I must have made about 8 half sheet pans full of RKT. I remember it this way because I melted the marshmallows in the half sheet pan in the oven and just mixed the RKT right there.
