hey ppl,

I have a customer who have sent a picture of cake for her father's bday. Now it is a tabla cake and to be honest i m confused bout how to build this cake up. NOw she told me that she will suprise him with the cake on a picnic trip. Thus that means my cake needs to be stable and filled with filling that can be outside.

Can anyone plz share tips and hints on how I can build the cake up as shown on the picture?

Will really appreciate it thumbs_up.gif

Hey Noorya, I am only new here myself, but I would stack the layers and carve them down like you would a teapot. I would use plenty of support, like dowel. I would use possibly a buttercream filling? or mock cream? If you are going to cover it with fondant, I would ganache the cake with chocolate, and let it set. This will make it more sturdy for travel. I did this with my 3D thomas the tank which had to travel for 3 hours on my lap! If you want any info on ganaching I can find a good tutorial for you. I hope that helps, maybe some more experienced decorators may offer some suggestions. Good luck.
