An emoji cake can be a fun cake for any kid, boy or girl at any age. Today, I share how to make an emoji cake tutorial for standing Meh. If you are new and not into cake structure make him sitting down and if your feeling adventurous, have a go at a standing emoji cake using my detailed instructions.
Make a hole in the center of the cake board – the hole should be the same size or smaller so the threaded rods fits snug.
Attach the rod to the board with washers and nuts on either side of the board. So you will use 4 each
Cut the ball – you need only about ⅓ of the ball to use as the base.
Make a hole in the center of the ball. I offset mine by an inch so it would look like the leg is not in the center but don’t think it made much of a difference.
Trim to size and secure it on the threaded rod with nuts and washers again that’s 4 each again on either side.
Place a cake circle the same size as the ball where the cake will be placed. This is so the cake won’t touch the foam.
Tip – Make sure all the washers and nuts are securely tightened. This is because these do tend to get loose with the weight of the cake. No matter how tight I think I have made it – it always has a way out, so I usually get my husband to tighten them even more.
Tip – As I have shown in the video – to ensure you have a perfect ball shape – use your ball pan to layer the cake – then place it in the ball pan with the foam – check to make sure the edges of the ball pan meet – if not trim some (watch the video as I have done this there)
About food safety
Probably the most important part of making this cake. No cake must come in direct contact with the threaded rod, nuts, washers, or foam. There are many ways to ensure this, you can wrap these with foil, cling wrap, tape. Today I have used white chocolate – I just poured white chocolate on it all and let it dry. For the bottom of the cake – I wrapped sticky tape before I wrapped fondant for the leg.
