This is so gross but I have been asked to make an emoji poop cake and I can't wrap my head around how to make it look like a "swirl." Any one have any suggestions? The customer says she would like for it to feed 15-20. Thanks!
Seems to be a popular trend right now - emoji poop Birthday parties, go figure. What about doing the cake with basic decoration and the baking some mini cupcakes or biscuits to sit on top with a poopie swirl and eyes etc? or Giant cupcake? or a cake with a carved round top?
Can't see how you could do a standard cake with a high enough swirl without going overboard with icing.
What about a brown beehive? Is that done with a beehive-shaped pan? You could easily add a top swirl and eyes.
I did a quick Google search and found a couple of tutorials. This one looks good:
Good luck with it!
I would stack an 8" layer, a 6" layer, a 4" layer and and an upside cupcake, carve the edges to round off and form a point on the cupcake at the top, then finish with buttercream or buttercream covered with fondant (which would yield a more detailed finished piece). Good luck!
not that you actually asked this but i would decline to do this cake -- i don't do the cat box cakes either -- i mean it's a just say no y'know?
you could call me a party pooper -- hahahahahaha
(but seriously i wouldn't do it)
Sorry, @kstevens! I was just thinking how I would do it. @-K8memphis, you could always think of it as the wizard's hat (or whatever it is) from Harry Potter. Every time I see one, I think it looks like a pile of poop. Hate that hat!
Thanks everyone! @k8memphis I wanted to turn it down because she booked for a Moana cake at first and then changed last minute
i hope all the orders you get from it are of a different nature!
kstevens -- let's not go too far with this -- chocolate is chocolate-- ahahahahahahaha
sandra, i looked it up, the hat, yeah it does -- yuck --
miss. -- i'm sorry you gotta make that thing --
but that reminds me of a true story -- couple decades ago maybe even almost three decades -- i read in the paper that this cake decorator in arkansas got arrested for putting ex-lax, a chocolate laxative, in someone's cake icing -- ruh roh --
the caker had a difficult customer and she thought she could get away with doing that to get revenge or something -- but she got busted for her actions --
now this situation is completely different but it just reminded me of that old story -- the chick went to jail -- wish i could find a copy of it --
The poop emoji doesn't bother me but if someone asked for a realistic turd or one of those God awful headless baby butt cakes.....that's a different story! Lol
Personally, I would not do the poop cake either OR the baby butt! I don't know why people think they are cute.
