this is fantastic. tell us about the bottom layer of the cake. how did you get the top lid to stay on the bottom cake?
very good cake. kindly tell us about the bottom layer. how did you attach the cover to prop it up? thanks
Hi cake bites, thanks for your kind words. I just positioned the lid on top of the box. It was heavy enough to keep it stable. I did make some gumpaste "hinges" which attached the lid and box although these were simply decorative. The lid was propped up be the sweets and choc coins and a wedge of leftover fondant or gumpaste. Happy cake-ing
Did you have a certain mold to make those hinges and gold strips? What about the wood boards? Or did you just use shaping tools for those details? It looks very awesome!!
hi there.thanks for your kind words. i didn't use any molds on this cake. i just cut and rolled gum paste into the right shape for the hinges. Yes, the wood boards are just strips of sugar paste. i used a veining tool to make the wood effect.the gold studs are dreges.
