I need to make a "tire" shaped cake to accomodate a construction themed b-day party. Can someone please tell me how to do this? Do I need to buy contour pans (don't have any) or is there a better way.?

Cake needs to be a 9 inch or 10 inch.

Thanks in advance,
Rhonda

just use the 10 in round pan(bake 2 of them) stack them and using a smaller round template cut a circle out the middle....if it has to stand up you will need to dowel it.

Do you want to make your tire lying down or standing up? da757deevalibra's instructions for a tire lying down are perfect. If you need it to stand up, you should layer the cake as usual, then use a template to cut in into a circle. Here's a standing tire cake I did:

It needs to lye down. I'll have to search for those instructions.

DianeLM,

  What size was your standing tire, and how wide did you make it? I am needing to make a standing tire 12" and am worried about the structure and it leaning or sagging, especially during delivery. I was wondering if it would be best to countersink some screws into the bottom on a wooden board (so the board will still set flat on the table) with dowels sticking up and set the cake down onto the dowels and layer as you would a regular tiered cake. But this way the dowels might help the cake from leaning since they are attached to the base? Does that make since? Is there anyway you would be willing to give me details on how you securely stacked yours?
