A friend asked me if I could make a cake for her son and he wants Disney's UP theme cake. She thought maybe a house or something but I am not sure what would be the best way to make a house. Any ideas would be really appreciated. I did look on here and saw no UP cakes and none really online except for 1.
so, consult this blog:
and then this photo of a model:
and see this cake:
it'll be just a bunch of slabs of cake carved to get the basic shape --- and then a daunting amount of detailing!
good luck I have no idea!
You could do the house with a ton of balloons coming out of the chimney!!
Doug, you really are incredible!!!!!
I just saw this movie for the first time last night with my 3 year old.
Definitely the house with a ton of balloons on top would make me recognize it.
However, if that is daunting, what about something less detailed like making Kevin, the huge colorful bird, as a FBCT and then gumpaste models of the old man and the little boy? Not sure where your skill comfort level falls.
Hope you can manage the house! I would love to see it!
I saw a cake based on that movie and I cannot for the life of me find it again -- I don't know if I saw it here on CC or on Flickr. Anyway, the cake was a house cake with balloons on the top and had fondant figures of the old man, the kid and the dog. She did a great job with the fondant figures -- looks just like the characters in the movie!! If I find it I'll definitely post a link!
Here's one that appeared on CC that you could use for starters: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1382313.html
This house looks do-able.
Scroll down to the end of the blog entry. Even though it's from cakewrecks, it's Sunday Sweets so it's a good cake!
An even easier house!
A more abstract interpretation, but still recognizeable for sure!
The big kahuna
Of course, the real problem is that the bunch of balloons has to be a lot bigger than the house. That's why the movie was so incredible visually, and the 3D version even more so. I can see that on a cake that lies flat like the first one in Chasey's post, but it would be a real challenge for a cake that stands upright. Anybody up to it? I, for one, would love to see a rendition that does it justice.
