Hi everyone, I need a little help. I'm supposed to be making a cake to replicate this:700

The megazord from power rangers jungle fury

for my nephews birthday. My sister wants at at least 2 to 2.5 feet tall. I have never worked with PVC piping before and I'm not exactly sure how to build or even size the dimension's for this. I do know that his arms and legs will be rkt, and I want the head and body to be cake. were do I start and what size boards do i use so I can order wooden ones? Thank you for looking and helping if you can.

This is a HUGE undertaking for someone who has never made something like this before.  I wouldn't even know how to type out instructions to pull this off.  It would be pages and pages.

 

But best of luck to you!  I'm sure there must be some sort of tutorial already out there for something similar to this, maybe try Googling.

This would be very difficult to do for me.  I do not have the knowledge for anything like this.  I am hoping someone here will be able to help you.  I can only do cut out designs into shapes and mine are never 3D but flat.

Good luck/Mary

Wow.  You must post a picture for us when you finish it.

I've tried googling... or maybe I'm just not looking hard enough I couldn't find the details. I really just need to know what sizing stands for the cakes to sit on and how big to make the base board. I should have it from there. thanks.

I can help with that part. Measure the object and say it's 2.25 inches wide at the bottom and 3.5 inches tall as it is right now in the picture. So you want it 2-2.5 feet tall? Multiply each number by 8 or 8.5 and you got it. So the figure will be approx 18 x 30 give or take.

 

One other thing determine how long you think this will take you to make and triple it.

 

Good Luck!
