I want to try this for my son's birthday party.
Does anyone have an idea of how this person made the"neck" of this cake?
How does the cake set on it and not fall apart. Is it because it's covered with fondant?
My guess is that the neck is actually a small cake drum or foam core and that the head sits on a thin cake board that then sits on the neck. HTH!
I was kind of thinking that it was probably cake boards or something. I guess my question is what about the cake that extends out past the cake boards. How does it not break?
I just had this thought after the my last reply. If the cake itself is on a cake board and then on a cake drum for the neck than it probably should support it without breaking.
I LOVE this cake! Please post a pic when you make it.
The bottom could be a styrofoam dummy, stacked cake boards or actual cake covered with fondant. All three methods require a cake board under the larger head cake. If its styro stick the head piece with cake board underneath right on the covered styro (after fondant has set). If its cake use short dowels to support the head piece. Do the same with a cake board for the smaller top piece and use dowels in the head for support. Actually looking at it again, you may even want to put your supporting cake board 3/4 of the way up the head piece and them your top piece should be easily supported by the few inches of cake at the top of the head. Great cake, I just made one but it was Lego blocks with Legomen. So much fun!! Good luck.
