When it comes to baking, what’s your bag? If it’s showstopping, jaw-dropping, ‘how-did-you-do-that?’ cakes that get your guests buzzing with amazement and admiration, this Carry Cake Kit will always be the height of fashion – and you’ll end up with a cake you can actually carry, adding even more ‘wow!’ as you tote it in for the big reveal.
What’s in the box?
There’s no end of beautiful bespoke bakes you can create using the simple frame as a base, making this kit a great way to make something really special for a birthday or special occasion. Here are some of our favourite ideas:
Handbags – you might not be able to afford the original, but you can always recreate the latest must-have bag in cake form for their birthday instead – and it’ll taste much better than the real thing!
Katy Sue Designs Zip Mould is the perfect partner to finish off the top or side with realistic zip detail, and you’re sure to find what you need in PME’s 14-Piece Icing Tool Set to add all the little finishing touches like stitch effects.
Flower baskets – perfect for birthdays, weddings or Mother’s Day, a ‘basket’ filled with flowers makes a great take on a standard floral cake, and our easy flower cutters make it so simple to create beautiful blooms. Roses, carnations, peonies; water lilies, chrysanthemums, dahlias – there’s sure to be a favourite in there somewhere!
And you can ‘cheat’ the woven sides of the basket with Katy Sue Designs Basket Weave Mould too.
Toolboxes – if they’re a DIY addict, make them a DIY cake, complete with shiny metallic lustre dust finish.
Goodie-crammed gift bag – top your cake with cookies or sweets for kids’ birthdays, or whatever other edible treats take their fancy – a layer of home-made chocolates or macarons? Don’t mind if we do…
Simple to assemble with full instructions
It might look like it’s beyond your skill level, but the easy-to-assemble pieces and step-by-step instructions make it easy for even novice cake decorators to achieve amazing results.
Bake, stack and sculpt…
Bake your sponges, cut them to size using the base as a template, stack them up, then put the base on top of the cake stack. Push the supports through the slots and down into the cake, then turn your cake over and slot the handle through the holes in the tops of the supports. Once you’re happy everything fits together, there are carving templates to help you cut your cake into a ‘handbag’ shape.
… fill and decorate.
Unstack your cake to add any filling, layer by layer, reassemble, then add a crumb coating of frosting. Chill, smooth over, then cover your creation in ready-to-roll fondant icing. Once your cake is covered, unleash your creativity by adding flaps, catches, buckles, straps, stitch detailing – anything you want to finish off your fabulous bag. And if you get a bit stuck, you’ll find plenty of design inspiration on Dinkydoodle Designs’ website, and a full Video Tutorial.
How to handle
The handle supplied is silver plastic, but if your design requires something different you can make your own handle from beaded wire, leather, ribbon or chain – you’ll just have to make sure that your replacement handle is strong enough to take the weight of your cake.
The platform, supports and handle are all made from food-safe, dishwasher-safe, BPA-free plastic.
Base 24.5 x 14.5cm.
