fancycakes You did a fantastic job"this is exactly what i'm looking for to do for a grooms cake. Would you mind giving me some pointers on what you did.thanks
Sure. I used two 1/4 sheet pans. I stacked them, then cut out a curve on the top right hand corner and a smaller curve on the left side. Then I cut out a long rectangular piece where the keys would be. And sculpted the curve on either side of the keys. I used a piece from the large cut to make the bench. Then I put the filling in between the layers. Then iced the white part on the bottom half. Then piped a black line around the center then filled in the black sides and smoothed it. No more room.
I love this cake!!!
You did an excellent job!! I thought the piano was freestanding as well. Excellent detail work.
Very cool cake, from the thumbnail I thought the piano and bench were actually standing on legs with no cake under them. Good optical illusion!
Great cake! How in the world did you get that icing so black?
I thought they were standing up too...you did a great job!
great cake..thats cute
wonderful cake!!! love it... and I have to be dingy and say I love the counter top too....thats the counters I want!!
Great job!! Was the wilton pans and kit used?? Love it!!!
I love the cake and I was thinking the same thing about the counter top!!
Wow, thank you. I used a lot of black gel color to get it really black. No I didn't use a wilton pan. I cut it from two 1/4 sheets. And It wasn't my countertop(I wish). This was a piano recital at the house of a wealthy friend.
was it all buttercream icing?
Yes, all in buttercream.
