Does anyone have any idea how to make a ship mast with multiple platforms? I don't know how to get the platforms to stay up on their own.
I'm modeling the cake after the USS Wasp. Here is a model version of it, which I think is helpful to see how it looks since all the real pictures are so far away.
From far away, it looks like just big antennas, but when I see some other pictures, I do see the platforms. I was going to make the antennas out of gumpaste, but I don['t know how to get the platforms to stay up on their own. If I made them out of gumpaste as well, I think with them all being on one side, it would tear through the cake because it's heavy on one side.
AI would make every mast from a thick dowel with balsa wood or plywood cut out platforms drilled through and glued in place, all the railings and aerials would be wire, I would then spray-paint them the right colour and set them aside ready to insert at the end.
I would do this weeks before I started the cake as there is a humongous amount of work in all the details....
I can't wait to see your cake it's gonna be amazing!!
I was hoping to make it edible. :) haha
AI'd have to go with "Sorry, I'm all booked up." Wow, what a cake! Stressful.
AI couldn't not do the details! It'd kill me handing it over knowing all the things I'd missed out!
What do you mean by small? How many servings?
