I'm doing a grad cake for my nephew in a week. He is into air rifle and archery, has won many championships and even got to go to olympic training camp last summer.
Anyway - I thought it would be cute to do a target on his cake with an arrow holding the diploma to the bullseye. Is there anyway to tmake the target standing? Even leaned back is ok. They're not having a huge amount of guests - so I think a 6" cake as the target would work well on top of a round or 9x13 cake.
I am very new to all this. So, this idea might not work. How about making a giant cookie of 6 " size (Preferably a hard one not chewy) and cover it with fondant and Stick it vertically on the cake?
My first thoughts. Would it be easier for you to make the target out of a 6 " cake board and cover it with fondant? You could have it angled on top of a larger cake using cookie sticks or straws cut at different heights. Also, If your really want a 6" cake and want it tilted a bit, I would just bake a 6" x 3" and then slice it from left top edge to bottom right edge, then flip it over, to make it tilt. HTH.
The cookie is a good idea.... Or rice krispie treats?
Ooooh, that cookie idea sounds good!
theres always good old gumpaste or royal icing too.
