Hi Everyone!

I am entering my first cake contest in April (yay for me!) and the theme is Spring Flower Garden. On the top of the cake, I want to add a watering can that looks like it's pouring water on the flowers that are on the cake. Similar to those beer can cakes, pouring beer into a mug.

I will probably have a clear plastic dowel running thru the entire cake, and I'll put the spout part of the watering can on top of the dowel, so the can is sitting at an angle. But now the challenge is, hiding that plastic dowel.

Any ideas on how to make "water" pour out of the watering can to hide the dowel? I was thinking fishing line with royal icing water drops?

Any ideas or suggestions??

Thanks! icon_smile.gif

For my Aquarius cake, I wrapped flexible copper tubing in plastic wrap. I covered the tube with blue fondant, then applied the buttercream.

Go extreme.... hook up a small fountain pump and run a hose up into the watering can. Then make a bowl for the water to collect in and stick the pump in it.

oh yeah!! icon_smile.gif
