Yeah! My first post. Hi ness-p! I have been looking forward to being able to respond to someone's question. there are so many talented people on this site and i am always the one searching forums looking for answers to all of my questions. i just recently made a pinata cake for my dd 1st bday party witha fiesta theme. i got my inspiration from another cc member. just look up pinata cake in the gallery section. for the life of me i can't remember or find the link to the tutorial, but i was so glad i could remeber bits of it when it came time to make the cake. i started with the legs using 1/2 inch dowel rods cut to equal lengths and screwed into a plywood board (probably overkill, but was very sturdy). i then used the pampered chef measuring cup (the 1 that has 1 side for liquid, 1 for dry) without the cup. i stuffed it with rkt, make sure you pack it in real good or else it will fall apart when you insert them onto the dowels. there was probably a much easier way of doing this, but like i said i lost the tutorial and was going on memory icon_smile.gif you can use the cup to measure the correct length for the dowels. i then put a dab of RI on each leg to secure the body which was 2 - 9x13's on cardboard. i iced the legs before i added the body. it was a really tight work space already & there was no way i could've done it otherwise. i carved the head out of styrofoam and attached with 2 dowels. I used waffle cones for the ears and iced the cake with tip# 47. used curling ribbon attached to skewer for the tail. i hope this helps. i will try to attach a picture of the cake. i do not have the confidence yet to post any pics. i usually just make cakes for my family for free!!!! no pressure involved!! icon_smile.gif feel free to message me.
