I really need help gettig this shape of cake, can use dummy if I found the place or how to order, this cake is due for valentines day wedding, please help me. here's a picture of a cake taken in ices convention in orlando 2 years ago.
my bottom tier would be "rounded" then a 12" regular then a rounded again about 9" and a regular 6" or 7"
Can this be done in actual cake? it is better to use fake? how and where to order? do I still have time? omg!!!! please help me!!!!
Can't help, but this is a beautiful cake. Good luck, and please post pictures.
I'm not the right person to help but I would guess use dummies for the oval shaped cakes. Google for a place near you selling cake dummies. I'm wondering if you would carve a square into that oblong shape? Whatever you do put a long long dowel down the centre to hold the lot in place. I wish you the best of luck and really hope somebody more knowledgeable will come to your asistance.
This is beautiful! I have seen Buddy on cake boss do something like this and he is on CC, or he use to be. I would look for him, he is wonderful for asking questions. If not him then maybe tonedna, however I haven't seen her do this one. By the way they use real cake and they flip the stacked cakes to sculpt the round tiers.
WOW, i wouldnt know where to start on this one. Good Luck, and yes post pics,
That should have been for answering questions. Dah!
beautiful! if you can do it out of cake, i would - I think it's so much more impressive! But if it's just too much, I would do at least parts of it with dummies - like the rounded ones if you don't want to mess with all that!

Cake Boss here on CC is not Buddy from the Cake Boss series. Our Cake Boss, I believe, sells the Cake Boss software that sometimes pops up in the ads.
I would think a stainless steel bowl like this one....just lop off the what you don't need
Buddy's member name on Cake Central is buddyV. It appears he has not posted anything here since April 2009.
I'm thinking you would not have much luck contacting him.
Hopefully someone else can give you the answer you are looking for.
I'd use two contour cake pans, flat edges together. (Normally with countour pans, you use one regular pan and one countour pan.)
If you want to use dummies and not try to carve up the styrofoam yourself, I ordered some dummies (pillow shaped and some similair to the shapes in this cake) from a guy at the Maryland cake show last year. Their website is www.guildcraftfurniture.com - they seem to be able to make just about anything (they charge you by the cut; they are furniture makers so they use leftovers from their manufacturing). If you call them, they can probably accomodate you.
guildcraft is the best for cake dummies, but order all you need becuz you will save on their surcharge and UPS. great custom service quick shipping and good prices. I got my dummies in 3 days.
