For this cake, we frosted a four layer, six inch double barrel cake (which stood approximately 7 inches tall). As with our other double barrel cakes, we placed a cake cardboard halfway up with bubble tea straw supports (or your supports of choice) beneath.
Gum paste & cutters for number topper (In a pinch, you can knead tylose into fondant). If you don't have a number cutter, you can also find number templates online.
Piping Tips: Tip 5 (head and neck), Tip 3 (legs), Tip 2 (eyes), Tip 3 bead borders, 104 petal tip for ruffles
Coloring Gels: We tinted our buttercream with Americolor Deep Pink, Sky Blue
Piping Gel or Tylose Glue
Candy coating for attaching anchors to back of number topper
Disposable Piping Bags
Small paintbrushes for applying piping gel "glue"
Cake cardboards - For the bottom and middle of the double barrel cake
Bubble Tea Straw Supports (or supports of choice)- We used 4 supports beneath the middle cake board halfway up.
Miscellaneous: We used disposable piping bags, small offset spatula, turntable for frosting the cake, bench scraper is helpful. Cake base/drum/ or pedestal (this is a heavy cake, if using cake cardboards for your base, stack about 4 together and wrap with cake foil, plastic tablecloth, etc.
