[postimage id="3485" thumb="900"]Hello I wondered if anyone could help me.
I have been asked to make this cake I am just wondering how to make the hood that you see on the cake to make it stay up what support would be needed.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the cake
There is a youtube video on it by SDcakes. The hood stays up with wire that the fondant is draped on.
hi, you can make it stay up with wires or if you can find flex plastic sticks. I do not like to stick wires to a cake, so I am puting piece of straw in to a cake, and then wires in to a straw.
Here is link to youtube *fondant baby cariage* and you can find more there, just to get idea.
They are really cute, almost makes me want a baby.......almost!
Great thank you for the advice I was at a loss what to do
That vid is soo cute :).....
I think that due to the size of the hood ypu need to make in order to span the diameter of the cake that fondant would not cut it......here I think you need to use pastillage....it is stronger and dries harder and can then take the weight of all the fondant used over it for decoration......it has to be made in advance and dried thoroughly....here is an example of a similar cake done in Pastillage ......

I would find a bowl that works to the dimensions of the cake I have to decorate and use it as the form for the hood.
Have fun :)
That is beautiful right there y dear. Well done x
@ Cakebaby2... :) thanks but I can not take credit...I got the pic from the internet as an example :)
Back in the *old* days, we molded sugar for those 'hoods'. If you have ever made a panorama sugar egg you will know what I'm referring to. If you want instructions let me know.
