I have a drum set cake to make this weekend and I am having issues figuring out how I am going to make the bass drum sit up on its side. A couple people have suggested that I use a styrofoam dummy but I really want to use cake. What type of supports should I use? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
What about making the bass drum like a giant jelly roll or what I remember as kids we would have ice cream cake roll for special desserts/ You could just spread bc on the flat cake then roll. Try to secure the edge somehow & put the seam side down, then frost or cover how you want. I would not try standing a cake on end...but that may just be my inexperience talking. I would love to see a pix of the finished cake. Good luck
This might not help much as you don't have much time left but yrs back a Wilton Yearbook had directions on how to do that. I no longer have that issue but maybe someone who does will look it up. I'm thinking it was back in the 1970s or 80s.
