Normally I'm not a "Need help ASAP!!" kind of gal - but today that is me! My husband is turning 40 on Thursday and I am planning on bringing a surprise cake to his office tomorrow. Obviously, because it is a surprise I have to work on it when he isn't here and couldn't really finagle a trial run. The cake I am making is a paddle tire cake - looks just like the attached photo except it is laying flat on the ground. The plan I had in my head to do the paddles isn't working out and I am mentally stuck. I need to finish this by the time he gets home tonight. Gahhh.
you could cover rice krispie treat tires with black candy clay/fondant/marzipan paint the interior silver --
but before you cover the tire affix the little parenthesis looking strips (the paddles?) onto the tire and then cover it then quickly mold around the strips with a soft pointed stick to reveal them underneath -- same with the dotted lines dashes on the other tire --
is that what you mean?
AMaybe soaked lasagne sheets, cut to the size you need them, dry into the shape needed, paint and attach???
Well...I needed to get it done before he got home so I just "winged" it. I ended up adding a ton of tiles to the satin ice black fondant I had, cut the strips out, rounded the corners, smoothed the edges, folded into an "L" shape and attached them to the cake, then did some more smoothing. It dried out soon quickly and some ended up a little cracked but it's for my husband - so he has to love it, right? LOL!
AMaybe she means tylose [@]-K8memphis[/@]? Otherwise I'm as confused as you!
AAh, autoincorrection.....once again you triumph with a new word that perfectly captures society in 2014! Great job, [@]-K8memphis[/@], your work is now done.
Aha! YES - TYLOSE!!! This isn't nearly as bad as when I texted my husband-
"Busy day - late start, grocery, made cookies, buttercream, went to orgy. Totally tired."
MEANT to say:
"Busy Day - late start, grocery, made cookies, buttercream, went to ortho. Totally tired."
Oh - and here is the finished cake:
oh you did awesome -- i bet he was so pleased! cake, tire/tiles, orgies and all
Ah, autoincorrection.....once again you triumph with a new word that perfectly captures society in 2014! Great job, @-K8memphis, your work is now done.
thank you, wm, i particularly love to make up words but i hope there's a few more things i can do ;)
AHey girls, I'd much rather go to an orgy than the ortho any day.....see you all there!
And the cake is pretty fine, your husband must have been so pleased. Maybe an invite to the next orgy will top off next year's birthday though?
He was kind of bummed that he wasn't invited to the orgy - also asked if I took pictures. Love that man - keeps me laughing!
