I want to make an umbrella cake sitting upside down on the open side. and inside the open side i will be making cake boxes, that will look like little gifts. anyone ever do this before.
i don' t remember a sculpture like that exactly but it sounds like a cool idea
i know i've done drawings similar
so is the handle sticking up or touching the cake board--i'm getting myself lost in the upside down part
so the boxes are made of cake or do they contain cake?
cool idea--for a shower, no doubt
I made a shower cake with an upside-down umbrella theme a year ago. I made the umbrella out of RKT and covered it with candy clay and left it to dry with the umbrella open-side down so the points of the umbrella would harden. I covered a plastic dowel with the same candy clay and pushed that into the center of the umbrella. The whole umbrella was then turned upside down, put on top of a cardboard cake round, filled with RKT kewpie dolls and set atop a 12 inch round cake. With plenty of dowels under the umbrella for support. Should be in my photos. Hope this helps!
