Urgent help needed PLEASE!!!!!
A customer has asked for a quote for a cake very similar to the cake in the link : http://michellecakes.co.uk/img/port/large/hollywood.jpg.
My challenge is how to carve out the cake to have the stairs. I think the stage can be made out of gum paste made well ahead of time and left to dry firmly. All ideas/suggestions on the cake, the stage and price will be highly appreciated
AYou could make the stairs Rice Krispies and have it meet up with the cake.
I would do the stairs out of krispie treats and put that sitting on a square or rectangle cake in black fondant. ( so where they have the cake board is the cake, if that makes sense?)
wow good luck ;-)
Many thanks to you both for your responses, very well appreciated. Your ideas are fab. I've been looking online (google images for cake with stairs ) and have come across some in which similar cakes (to the holywood one) have been done. I will share them asap. I'm still looking
