AHi i have been asked to make a standing xbox 360 cake but worried about it falling over size in inches height 12.15 length 10.15 width 3.27 any ideas what I can use so this doesn't happen
what do you mean standing?? will it be on something?
just use plenty of support and dowel through the whole thing maybe 2 dowels ...probably ganache it for extra support! I've only made one laying down! Good luck!!!
AIt will be on a cake board was planing on stacking the sponge and using dowels hopefully it won't fall
Oh ok, I feel like such a idiot lol I'm so use to seeing xbox cakes laying down, but I now know what you mean
Yes, I think great support would be key here, along with ganache to hold everything in place. And putting the fondant on in sections sounds like a good idea.
How did the standing Xbox turn out?? I did one laying down that turned out well. But I haven't seen any standing ones yet. :) http://www.caketheday.com/2011/07/xbox-360-birthday.html
AHad to put thin board between layers to make it stand then had to do fondant in strips not in a hurry to try again
