I have to make a Mr. Potato Head Cake. So far I have 2 6" cakes, torted and filled with 3 layers each (total of 6 layers) with board in center of cake. It's chillingnow getting ready for me to carve him up. What's the best way to set this up? Need tips for sculpting the right shape or any and all tips you can give me. I don't know why this cake is making me so nervous! Probably because the shape is everything and I'm afraid to mess up. Help please! Idea or suggestions?

I'm no pro, and assuming the cakes you've made are round, I would prob start carving at the top, sliding the knife down - sort of rounding him off to the middle where you have your board & do that al the way around. Then, do the same with the bottom. Because he's a potato, and potatoes aren't perfect, you will get away with a couple of minor imperfections (should you have any! which i hope you dont and good luck. dont be nervous and just cut small & take your time. dont forget the pics icon_smile.gif
