Tinkerbell 3D Stages by ginas-cakes Tinkerbell 3D Stages by ginas-cakes
This is the other cake I have been doing this week. It's been a difficult one as I still can't get my sponge right after getting my electric oven, so will be looking into a new recipe...(any sturdy, tried, tested and tasty vanilla sponge recipes will be extremely appreciated)

It's a 13 inch victoria sponge,with vanilla butter-cream and rasberry jam filling. I used a support rod as it's got to travel a bit of a way.

It's based on a picture of a cookie jar that I was sent photo's of. It's didn't turn out exactly the same as the picture, but as long as it looks 'Tinkerbellish' that's the main thing.....

These were 13 inch round cakes that were used or was it 13 inch in height. What sizes were the rounds?

I actually carved her out but as soon as I got done carving everything except the front indentation on her face..then ahe started falling forward. It was still exciting to see it come alive. Mine wasn't as clean as yours and I think it was because of the cake recipe. also I didnt freeze the cake beforecarving so there were tons of crumbs. Im going to redo it again this weekend using the sour cream recipe from cake central. This time I will freeze a little before carving. The only concern is keeping it from falling over. I didnt have a dowel rod tall enough.  Also I can't put in a cake board support inside because once I start sculpting the board would be sticking out. Super fun and relaxing. I can't wait to do it again.

I'm glad that despite a few learning curves, you are enjoying the process.

Firstly, I don't freeze sponge....I didn't know you could actually. My recipe is

quite light which is why it's such a task to carve the things :)

I've heard that pound cake that 'Cake Boss' uses is really good for carving.

 

With keeping Tink upright, after I carved her out, I

had to lift her up, and put her through the support rod that I'd glue-gunned into the

cake board. I put a smaller rod through from her head to the bottom as straight

as I could so it would help guide me to the support rod on the board. I don't know

if this is the correct way of doing it, but it worked for me.

 

I hope that helps a bit. It's sometimes a bit difficult to explain exactly without making it sound

complicated :)

Oh thats great info on the rod. I may try that. I havent tried buddies recipe. Im going to look it up on cake central. The recipe I use is the sour cream almond. Starts with cake mix, tlour, sugar salt then wet ingredients are water sour cream vanilla and if you want almond flavoring. 4 eggs and vegetable oil. Lots of fluff everywhere when carving. But also I have to keepexperimenting with knives.  I miss my old carving knife it didnt rip the cake. Ive been using a paring knife lately. If you look at the pumpkin carvers they also use peelers and those wire things that are used in clay sculpting. Im going to get a potato peeler. Thanks again for the tipa
