Hi i have to make a standing meerkat made all from sponge the customer doesnt like rkt
does anyone have any sugestions for this
I was thinking of round cake stacked and carved but worrying about the support
AWhat size do you need? If they insist on it being cake and not cute wee modelling choc ones on a bigger cake (and are prepared to pay for the 3d- I find the price usually puts em off!) the we'll need to know how many servings before we can really help :-)
AHi it's for 20 servings and they don't want models still to quote the price
AI'd probably stack 3 6" rounds with an internal board and supports half way, I'd insist on a strong filling like ganache too... You might be able to do all your detail carved in a thick crumb coat and not have to use fondant- just brush on brown powder colour...
I'd price them based on costs plus 10hrs work, it'll be pricy for such a small cake! Hope you get to make this it sounds great fun!
AHave given price they are going ahead with order not had much notice due for collection on saturday i have made 3x 6 inch and 8 inch round for base and legs stacked and frozen ready to sculpt tomorrow but really don't want to cover in fondant as I think it would be to heavy would a grass tip be ok for fur or would I be better using butter icing and making fur that way
