Myan pyramid cake???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I need to make a cake to resemble a myan pyramid. The customer sent me these photos as a reference. She wants light grey buttercream, 4 double layers (6-8-12-16) and she wants the stairs going down the front. How on earth do I make the steps? Am I over thinking it? Since it's buttercream I feel like it's going to be really difficult. Any advice on how to do the stairs? [IMG][IMG]400

Yes, you are over thinking icon_smile.gif

The picture looks like they are all made up of single layers (except maybe the top and third tier down) with all decorations in BC.

It looks like a larger round tip, built out to create distance from the 'door', with lines for the steps. If you're worried you can make the BC a bit thicker for the steps.

What about under the stairs? Should I use scrap cake and cut out pieces to place then add the buttercream stairs? Or do I just piled on a crap ton of buttercream under the steps?
