I finally found the photos of the jukebox cake I did to match the hamburger cupcakes for a friends daughters 16th birthday party. I forgot my camera battery had died that day and I used a different camera... derrr haha
Below is a quick basic photo tutorial of how I made the cake (image heavy)
As you can see its by far not perfect and because I did not do a support layer only some dowels, the cake started dropping by end of day causing the fondant to pucker but overall it was still somewhat a success, birthday girl was very happy :) The cake was about 35cms tall with jam and cream layers.
This was extremely stressful as time was against me but my lovely husband came to the rescue, carved the curve of the cake (I was sure I would stuff it up) helped me straighten it out when it was tilting to one side, helped with details and made me lots of tea...
If I did this again I would not use the yellow, I think it would have been better pink but I ran out of pink and did not want to go to the shop again. For the silver details I used a metallic edible paint that comes with a brush (looks like a nail polish) I use that often and find its better than a shimmer powder as I can never get the powder even.
I really wanted a neon look with the colours but the lovely ladies at the shop said no brand makes any neon colours, so I grabbed the pink and teal :)
My handwriting is terrible, so ignore that lol I used a edible texta I brought from my cake supply shop, I was not too keen on it as I had to press to hard to get a darker black which would push into the fondant. I am probably doing it wrong and maybe should have researched how to use these correctly haha
My instructions for the cake was basically do what I like as long as it has one of her favourite bands Simple Plan, We are Kings or 360 somewhere on the cake.
This is what I used for the majority of the cake. I like using this Fondarific brand as it goes far and does not dry out, which gives me plenty of time to do the design and correct errors ;) My friend who is a cake artist uses a brand I am hopeless with haha So my advice to everyone is find a product you like and find easy to use and stick with it.
Above are some photos my friend tagged me in on Facebook, all ready to go in the fridge lol
Not my best cake but not my worst, it looked great next to the hamburger cupcakes which made it work :) I was happy it was all finished and delivered on time and that afterwards my bed was calling my name hahaha
