I would like to make a 3-D pineapple shaped cake. What type of pans do I use and how many? What pattern do I use to decorate it and make it look like a pineapple down to the stem. I was considering using the top of a pineapple for the stem.

I think I would stack a bunch of 6 inch rounds and then carve it! That's the only thing that I can think to do. You could probably make the pineapple stem out of gumpaste.

measure how high you want it to be and that will give you an idea how many 2" high cakes you will need (include some filling, of course) - 6" diameter pans would probably be best, unless you were wanting a much larger pineapple - then go with 8". If you could freeze them before carving that is always helpful, they have less give when they're frozen and they carve more easily. Good luck!

my wal mart (for some reason) has started stocking the football shaped pans again. i would use this pan, then trim the top and bottom points off. should be the perfect shape with the curves you need. hope this helps! icon_cool.gif
