Easy Gravity Defying Cake
Gravity defying cakes can sometimes be tricky and involve a trip to the hardware store. We are always looking for the easiest possible option that still looks amazing when it comes to cake decorating. So, today's cake construction couldn't be simpler.
I'm going to show you the easy way to build a gravity defying support system for cakes that features something suspended that is lightweight. Lightweight it the key word for this type of cake construction. ;0)
For today's cake, we're suspending a gift bag with candy spilling from it, but there are endless options: candy wrappers, empty soda or beer cans, plastic bottles, cartons, etc.
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we thought that it would be fun to use a gift bag so that we could incorporate all sorts of candy rather than just one kind. I hope that you enjoy the video! We had so much fun making it!
