MOUNTAIN-CAKE
Somthing I realized when carving my first spiral was that I didn’t need an extra cake to make the road. The piece I carved out of my cake could be flipped and used to create that road effect. My cake had 4 different flavors so I wanted each layer to stay the same flavor without baking an extra cake to make my road (I’m pretty frugal and don’t like extra work if I can find a shortcut…no pun intended).

List of Materials

  • Toothpicks
  • Offset Spatula
  • Very Hot Water
  • Sharp Knife
  • Frozen Crumbcoated cake

Using toothpicks outline the road down the side as to how far you want it. I used toothpicks just to outline my curve on top.

After cuts are complete pull out the extra cake carefully to keep the piece in tact.
