I am hoping someone could help me, my son has asked me to make him a helicopter cake. I have learned alot from this site and I am hoping I can learn this also.

I have already searched online for tutorials, including this site, based on what I have found I think I need to use the egg shaped pan and carve into shape.

If anyone could help me I would really appreciate it. Am I right about the pan? My second choice was a oval pan?

Thanks in the advance for the guidance.

I think carving cake and fondant. icon_smile.gif Since my son's only 7, he would just be thrillled with a dimensional helicopter themed cake. I would make a scene of some sort and use his Lego helicopter or something similar. That may be the easy way out to some, but it's so fun to come up with it all to make it "lifelike".

I think the egg pan will be closer to what you need.

actually, a sheet cake split length wise and stacked on itself will work just as well.

What with the carving involved, there's no real advantage to using egg or oval pan.
