I really need to pick your brains. I have a lady who wants me to make a cake that looks like a tanning bed. I am ok with the bottom of the cake, but how on earth am I going to make the top of the cake look open and actually have the cake not fall? Any ideas would be so appreciated.
I would use a thick foam and carve out the interior (cover with fondant) IF you want the depth.... you can use dowels to support the foam.
You can create a hinge system and drill screws to set the TOP in place, so that it appears open.... I will mostly like try this method the next time, I create a cake with an opening...
My jewelry box cake, was not well planned out and by the time I was ready to attach the lid it didnt work as I planned...lol So I was forced to put the skewers in the front since the cake was due in like 4 hrs....HTH
