i need to make a boxing glove cake (2 gloves actually).. what type of pan should I use?
I was thinking about a rectangular pan + half circumference on top.. or 2 rectangular cakes?
need advices pls!!!
I'd probably use a loaf pan as boxing gloves are pretty rectangular, go for a sturdy cake recipe like Madeira so you can carve a good shape. You could either carve away to leave a thumb or make it out of fondant
Hope that helps
I dont have a loaf pan but i have 2 rectangular pans: the first one 10" x 8" and the second one 14" x 8". So I can use one of them.. It's my first carved cake so I'm pretty worried!!!!
Which one would you use for 35 people (each glove)?
Don't you worry you'll be just fine
I'd go for the 10x8 I think, that'll be plenty of cake for people, put the cakes in the fridge overnight before carving and you'll have a much easier time, if you can print out a glove from above and from the side at the size you want it'll help you loads with carving.
If you're comfortable with ganache I find it way easier to work with than bc when crumb coating a 3d cake because its so much more stable when its cooled, but if you're not sure don't worry, it'll just be an extra stress you don't need
Take your time, start early and you'll do great! I usually give myself 6 days (evenings) to do a 3d cake.
Hope you have fun, looking forward to seeing it in your gallery
I just saw your boxing glove cake - wonderful job it looks great!
Happy new year :)
