AHello I am stuck on how to make a hot air balloon cake. The ones lying down yer can do that but the floating ones what will I need to support the cake floating?
use a very large plate on the bottom to anchor it down--don't get it too grandiose and you should be fine--
you could make the basket bigger than the tube--put a 'flame' in the tube so it plays to the effect you're trying to achieve--
i mean it's not exactly floating but that's about as close i can think unless you build something to hang it from--in fact there are those upside down stands somewhere online--see if i can find them...brb if i can...
here it is http://cakestackers.com/
Not sure if you're willing to pay, but if so, there's an amazing tutorial that'll surely help you...the balloon & basket are both cake: https://www.facebook.com/divaliciouscakes/app_251458316228
It's really, really, well done...one of my favorite tutes ever, and only 8 (US) bucks!!
