So Im stumped. If you have any ideas, maybe someone's done a cake like this before?! Customer likes this design here:
Her fiance wants it to be a groom's cake. I don't think I can sculpt this, and I really don't want to try...and edible images aren't going to work either...What other ideas are there? She said it doesnt have to be exactly like this..He goes by Falyn Angel (band name) ..Don't know if that helps. Just don't know if I can make this look like a cake..doesn't even have to be sculpted she said in that shape..just something with a cross and wings I guess??! AHHHHHH!

I hope you have large square and round cake pans, lol This can be very easy. Make the large square pan then cut the cross design 4 pieces and put them together like a cross. Since it doesn't have to be exactly like the design this will work
step 2, use your largest round pan and start cutting thinner half moons so that they look like the angel wings- i wish I could draw this for you since I did a similar design but sorry no pic. To clarify further, draw a large circle on parchment paper or a paper bag, draw a line vertically down the middle, then start drawinh half moons on either side of the circle-different sizes, cut then shape around your cross until you have th design you want- HTH

do a search for angel wings on cake central, they have several cakes where they simply carved 2 wings out of a large round, then covered in feathers using the large leaf cutters.
