Tangled Tower Cake

Brief Description:

My cake was inspired by the Disney movie "Tangled." I created this cake for a friend of a friend's daughter, who was turning 7. She LOVES the movie Tangled, and my friend thought an over the top cake would really surprise her.

Ingredients:

Chocolate cake, chocolate frosting, cereal treats, fondant, modeling chocolate, gum paste, edible paints and markers.

Steps:

I started this cake by going to the hardware store to get a heavy wooden base, pipe and flanges, which I used to create the structure. I wrapped the pipe with cereal treats and then covered that with modeling chocolate. I then stacked the chocolate cake, wrapped it in fondant, and added fondant and gum paste decorations. The roof is made from cereal treats, and hundreds of gum paste tiles. I attached a hard plastic plate to the top of the pipe using another flange, and then hot glued the cake board to the plate. I "glued" everything together using royal icing, and then hand painted the decorations using edible paints. I also added details with frosting, such as the flowers and leaves.

Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your cake is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
