Do you sell this cake? Yes

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Bottom layer is a cheesecake smothered in chocolate 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 do I make fondant boxing figures please

I'm not sure what you mean by boxing figures? If you mean something like people figurines that are boxing then I recommend signing up for one or more of the Craftsy Classes that will help you design/sculpt figurines. Personally I have the customers buy the toy sculptures/figurines & I use them on the cakes.

How did you shape the cake into a glove

07/20/2016 Flag

Start with a rectangle shape, add layers for height. The thumb will be added later. Now for the carving: round off the front-side (where the fingers would be). mark-off approximately where the wristband meets the glove (maybe 1/3 the way up). Again from the front-side start carving - gradually taper the top of the cake to the wrist band, at that point - keep your knife parallel to the table & carve the wrist band height. Round off all the edges except for the bottom-edge (opening hole of the glove). For a more realistic look don't forget to round off where the cake meets the board. For the thumb: use the carved off pieces of cake (or use cake balls or use fondant) shape to a large thumb & put in place. Cover with icing. Roll out the fondant, drape over entire cake, carefully pushing in & around thumb area & tucking under the cake next to the board. Use modeling tools to create the wrinkles, lines & stitch marks. Then airbrush or hand paint. Hope that helps :)
