Hi! I've been getting very good tips on how to make this truck, but I have one more question (god I hope it's the last one! lol)
The truck is going to be about 12" long, 7" wide and 7-8" tall... I'm planning on using a sheet pan and cutting and stacking from there... the question is, do I need to use dowels/board in between for a cake this size? I've never done this kind of cake before so I'm not sure and don't want it to "buckle" but don't want to do this if it's unnecessary. Thanks for your help!
giving you a bump (to bring your topic to the top for others to see and help you)
I used a sheet cake to make an airplane. I cut the sheet cake into thirds then stacked with buttercream between each layer. The airplane was on a platform above the board. I used skewers to go through the cake and into the foamboard platform just enough to give stable support. You could sharpen a dowel for the same effect, skewer was small and handy.
Hope this will be of some benefit to you.
