What are you most proud of? how solid the structure was! it handled the delivery drive so easy! i was so nervous but it didnt move a bit! the finishing is pretty average, but i was really testing the structure, looking forward to fine tuning my finishing on the next project! on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? plan it out, print your templates and draw it up, then you know exactly what you need to build! thanks so much mike for your amazing class! on

Hi Zarlene, fabulous cake, I would love to know where the support sits in the jug part of your cake? Is it tilted like the jug? I have been looking and looking, please put me out of my misery!

hi kathryn, thanks for the lovely comment! the structure was actually really easy, i took a plastic beer jug and cut half of it away to make it easy to add the cake, and just attached it to the bent threaded rod! i will upload a picture of the structure which will explain it all! thanks!

Aw thanks for sharing this with a pic. Was wondering how in the world to get a cake standing up on a structure like this.
