OK, so I got an order for a drum set cake. It is a personal cake so it doesn't have to be really big, and I am pretty confident on everything except the bass drum. Does anyone have any ideas on how to stand it up without the cake collapsing on the bottom? I was thinking of just putting it on dowels, but my dh thinks that if we just lay if flat and cover it in fondant, then wait until it drys to stand it up, it will be fine. ??? Any suggestions would be much appreciated
I have a drum set cake order as well! I would suggest making the bass drum a dummy cake, then no need to worry about collapsing cake. Also, depending on the size drum you're making, you could also use cereal treats. Good luck!
Thank you Jamielc, I was so excited for this challenge, until the customer decided it was too expensive. I don't think that a drum set replica AND a 1/4 sheet cake for $150 is too much!! but oh well, you win some and you lose some. It just kills me when people don't understand that these specialty cakes take a LOT of time and, our time is not free
Good luck on your cake, I would love to see pictures
