This cake recently came about because my friend, Bob, was looking for a humorous birthday cake for his two friends who were turning 60. And he got it.
The bowl was three layers of vanilla cake with raspberry filling and the tank and toilet paper roll were Devil’s Food layered with vanilla butter cream. Everything was covered with fondant.
The poop was chocolate butter cream, the water in the bowl was tinted piping gel, the handle on the tank fondant, the toilet paper was preforated fondant and the lid was custom made out of wood. There was a detachable card on the inside of the lid that everyone signed for the birthday couple.
Because we had never done this before, it was an engineering challenge. A sturdy platform (cake’s heavy!) had to be built for the tank that included a back so the cake tank wouldn’t lean halfway through the party and we had to find small hinges for the lid, which also needed a place to be attached so it could be opened and closed.
All of the wood was painted white to seal it and to make it washable. The platform was covered with blue and white checked washable vinyl wallpaper to imitate a typical bathroom floor.
Now that we’ve made this cake for Bob, we can make one for you. Contact us with your event: be it an anniversary, birthday, an open house, renovation celebration or any party for a plumber.
