Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Bottom layer is a cheesecake smothered in chocoate glaze. The "glove" is cake, icing and fondant. My air compressor was on the fritz so this cake is hand painted with a mixture of reds and some brown.I didnt have my edible printer yet so i printed on a piece of transparency - cut it to size and wet the edges to adhere to the cake & to keep it from curling up. Just remember to tell people that it's not edible! You will also need a stitching tool, fondant tools, serrated knife.

What are you most proud of? I think it turned out real good, I like the "used" look of it. The birthday guy loved it too!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try to have the real object to see & touch when designing the cake version. Since the bottom tier was cheesecake & needed refrigerating and the top tier was covered in fondant (not refrigerated) I did not stack them together until I was ready to hand it off to the customer.

How did you sculpt the glove? What size cakes did you use and how did you stack them?

Sorry for the delayed response, I don't always notice responses on my projects for some reason. It's been about a year or more since i made this cake. I know the bottom round cheesecake was made with my spring form pan. So that's a 9.5 inch round. So it looks like the glove must've been 10" round that I carved. I would've torted & filled the cake and just carved it to match an actual boxing glove that I had on hand. (no pun intended haha). If you take away the thumb its just a rectangle with one side taller then the other. Then round your edges off. As for stacking, i kept the two separate until delivery day. Since the cheesecake had to be in the cooler. The glove was on a cake board, so i just lifted it and placed it on top. With the hardened chocolate glaze on the cheesecake i didn't feel the need to support the glove from underneath. Hope that helps you.
