Does anyone have experience carving a snake out of cake and if so, would you PLEASE share how you did it with me? I need to know if I should stack round cakes and then carve them or carve each round layer and then put them together to form a coiled up snake..thanks!!
I would suggest using a savaron tin if you have one, and then cutting into sections and forming into a snake. However, if you do not have one, just stack round cakes and carve the edges so they look round, and cut the middle out. Hope this helps, and good luck!
An angel food tin or a ring mold will also help to shape the cake as much as possible. You bake a few and cut each ring in half, then you stick them end to end on the board. Then only the head and tail need detail work.

A friend of mine tried it. Here's her blog post about it. HTH!
Thanks for the link traci_doodle. Very helpful!
Go to the photos section and in the search box put "coiled snake cakes". It came up with 13 cakes. Maybe one of those would give you some ideas. Good luck!
