Hi there, I'm new to all this & will be attempting a 3D mushroom style cake. I really would like to ensure the whole thing doesn't collapse.
Both the "stem" and the "cap" will be made using a mud mix and covered in fondant.
Apart from using skewers through the stem and placing the mushroom cap on a cake board large enough to sit on the stem underneath it, can you think of anything else I would need to do, so that the mushroom cap (being the heavier cake) won't collapse?
Thanking you in advance
instead of skewers, use some larger dowels so that it's a little more sturdy. Also remember to place a dowel through the top all the way into the bottom cake board for support. I cant wait to see your cake. I LOVE THE SMURFS!!!!
I don't know how big you need it to be, but the mushroom cake in my pics I made using the cupcake pan from Wilton. I just inverted the base of the cupcake, and shaved the point off of the top.
geri4292adams, the cake isn't due until the end of this month, so you'll have to wait to see my pic but I will post it, and thanks again for your advice, I will keep that in mind
