Weight Lifter's cake


This was a fun creation!

Three layers of yummy cake iced with butter cream and covered with black fondant.
Note to self.....black fondant made very dark black.....TURNS PURPLE!!
Needless to say, I removed the fondant and started over!

did you bake the cakes in a special pan to get the ridge around the edge?

Love it, how did you get the ridge around the edges that makes it look so much like a plate?

Hi there~!
So sorry it took so long to get back to you.
No it is not a special pan I just shaped the cake to look like the weights,, then when the fondant was placed on top I adjusted it to have room to make that ridge...if the is now as clear as mud!!!
Thanks for looking.

Great job on the weightlifting cake. Are each of the three layers made up of a double or single layer cake?

I love your weightlifting cake. I was curious if each of the three layers is made up of 1 or 2 cakes put together.
