Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how I can create a 3D boat cake? I am just a beginner in using fondant and carving cakes. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I did a trial run yesterday but it didn't turn out that great. I used loaf pans to create the structure, but maybe a circle cake would be easier to work with if I carve the boat out of that?

I just did a motor/sky boat for a friend's wedding. It is in my pics. I baked 2 pound cakes in 9x13 pans filled them with the filling, put them in the freezer to firm, and then carved.

i made this cake for my dad's bday last year. i used square pans or you could use loaf pans. i just cut the pieces and stacked them, icing in between, until i got the right shape. the front of the boat is made of rice crispy treats because the flare was so great... i didn't want to to fall! what kind of boat are you trying to make?
