Anyone? This cake was one of Eight's btw.
It looks like a half round pan-- a cake baked in a half round (pound cake consistancy would easily stand up like this (I think) whereas a round cake cut in half just wouldn't make it.
Not an expert by any means and I could be totally wrong!
What is "8's BTW?"
Val is right a pound cake in a half round should be fine
For my eldest grandsons birthday I cut a 9" chocolate wasc in half. It stood up just fine with a dab of royal icing underneath to secure it.
Or, if you want fillings, you could use small sheet cakes, stack, fill and carve them into that shape. That way, you have fillings.
Yup Two rounds cut in half and standing up. Make sure to secure them together with picks though...
I use 4 inch bamboo skewers. I'd place them in a crisscross pattern about 4 of them, mid way up the cake.
Just be sure to let the customer know about them before they serve it though.
No tips, but just wanted to say that cake is adorable!
I just did a purse cake with 8" rounds. Cut a section off the bottom and I iced the two bottoms and "stuck" them together. Crumb coated the cake standing on its end and covered it in fondant. It is still standing after 2 days (it's here at my house...a practice cake my family is eating) I didn't use any support system.
Thank everyone so much!!!
i persally would section of a round tin with cardboard ( i do this all the time with my square tins to make rectangles) I use the bottom of a cereal box and cut of the front leaving the bottom sides and back then cut one end so that it fits length ways into the pan but has one full corner for stability then like with baking paper so it wont leak and hey presto -new shaped tin (I also use this method to bake several different flavoured small cakes for taste tests) hope this helped!! just thought it would save you needing to crisscross pin t as it would be in one piece that would easily hold up.
