I recently picked up one of Lakeland’s “anti gravity” cake kits by CakeFrame and decided to try to entire their November online contest to win £50 worth of store vouchers. I didn’t win the contest, but it was an excuse to make myself a birthday cake fit for a cake decorator.
The piping bag was made out of rice cereal treats, shaped around the plastic stick of the kit with the angled piece sticking out.
Then I covered that with royal icing to smooth it out, let it dry, then covered the whole thing with fondant, shaped a tip, and hand-painted some gel colour to look like a piping bag logo on it. I’ve done this sort of thing before, just not standing upright.
I then made a dark chocolate cake and covered it with dark chocolate ganache and chocolate fondant. I added other fondant accents to look like piping. The cake was slightly too short for where the bend in the tub occurred, so I made some fondant flowers to hide the pipe.
We took some photos to make it look like I was using the piping bag but then able to back away from it in mid-air.
But the funniest photo was this badly overexposed one with my toddler totally photobombing in the background.
