I have a new customer that ordered a 1/4 sheet cake with a geyser on it...Old Faithful in particular. I have no idea what to do. Does anyone have any ideas? It's not a 3D cake...

Thanks in advance!

I've seen somewhere that someone put a small amount of dry ice in a plastic film canister with a hole in the top to make a steam train actually "steam". Maybe you could do something similar. Sheet cake, canister buried, little fence/roped off area and a sign? Good Luck with that one!

I was thinking dry ice also and blue piping gel for the water...

You could sculpt the geyser out of rice krispy treats so it will stand straight up. You could incorporate the dry ice also. Could be really cool!

Good luck!

That is a pretty skinny one I would try white wire and piping gel over it. I cluster of wires from one spot reaching up and then bending out a little. I think the landscape it really key to this cake also. Take your inspiration directly from pics of it.
