I am supposed to be making a 3d deer cake for my friend's little boy's birthday in a few weeks. I have neve attempted this one, but I have made other 3d animal cakes.
I just wanted to see if anyone had instructions or any experience on how to build the structure for a cake like this?? thank you!
There is an episode from amazing cakes (I think it was that one) that a cakery in the Durham nc area made on on a mount for a grooms cake....might be able to find it on the network website or on YouTube...hope that helps a little
Below is a link to one in the CC gallery. It knida/sorta tells you how it was made. Hope this helps and good luck!
I would use PVC for the legs, secure them to a wooden cake board base and attach a cake board to the top, then cover with fondant or modeling chocolate.
Thanks to everyone for the help!!
I'm just planning on doing it like a "mount" instead of the whole body standing.
I came across this thread--how did your deer/buck turn out? I've been asked to create one for a groom. Any advice?
Hi there...I am a newbie, but I just made one a bit ago.....not sure if this is something you are interested in, but mine was loved, loved by all...I used covered wire for antlers, then covered in fondant, to shape the head and nose of the deer, i used rice krispy treats...it really turned out awesome...take a peek!!!
edited to add, it won't upload my pic, but you can see it in my album here!!
Would love to see it and any insturctions you would be willing to share!
