Thanks for all your ideas with the light bulb cake that i had to do this week. Ill attach a picture for those who would like to see. I am inrterested in any feedback. I used a sprtsball pan and 2 6 inch rounds cut in half to make my light bulb and then placed on top of a 10 inch round. This cover in MMF.

TIA
John

That's great! But why exactly did you have to do a lightbulb cake?

That looks terrific thumbs_up.gif

I see on the lightbulb where you used the sportsball pan but where did you use the 2 six inch pans cut in half??? I don't see how the "stem" of the bulb is the 2 six inch pans??? By the way, the cake looks really small to be the pan sizes you say they are. Did you stand on a chair to take the picture?? That might be why it looks small to me.

You did a really great job with this. I would have never thought to make a lightbulb cake. thumbs_up.gif

The shiny icing was an accident, it was kinda warm where i rolled the MMF out so I put the cake near an airconditioning vent and I guess it just built up the humidity. It looked OK but if you touched the MMF the colors bleed.

AThis is amazing. It's exactly what I was looking for. I'm not sure I can pull it off?..

funtodecorate2 Posted 3 Jun 2013 , 9:49pm

looks awesome. And what a cool youth retreat theme. I'm sure the kids will love it icon_biggrin.gif
