I’m a woman so I don’t necessarily appreciate the appeal of the lady who pops out of a giant, fake cake at a bachelor party. However, I do know how you can make that huge cake! If you need such a cake you’ll have a really hard time finding one, and if you ever do, you won’t want to pay the price they’re asking for it! But, you can easily make that cake yourself and the woman that hides inside, well, that’s up to you!
One way to make the cake is to simply use cardboard boxes you already have. You’ll need at least three boxes to create a really large cake that will easily conceal the woman. However, you can use even more if you want. Each box should be smaller than the previous one and each box should be perfectly square. Make sure the top box is large enough for the woman to slide her whole body through.
Remove the flaps from the largest box and place it upside-down on the stand you will use. You’ll need some type of stand that rolls easily to hold the cake. This can be just a piece of wood with casters attached.
Remove the flaps from the next box, turn it upside-down, and set it on the first box. Draw around the smaller box then cut out the square. But, as you cut it, make it an inch or so smaller than the drawing. Continue doing this, placing the next and the next box on the stack, drawing around each one, then cutting the hole a little smaller than the drawing.
As you cut the opening out of each box, turn the box upside-down on the stack, then glue or tape it in place. The top box, of course, needs no opening cut into it.
Decorate the fake cake by using dimensional paints. These will give you more of a look of frosting than traditional paints. You’ll find dimensional paints in many different colors at most any craft store. Decorate the cake with artificial flowers by simply taping or gluing the floral pieces in place wherever you want them.
If you have no square boxes you can make the cake yourself. Cut circles of poster board so that each one is a little smaller than the previous one. Cut bands of poster board long enough to wrap around the circles. Wrap one band around each circle and glue or tape it in place.
Set the largest arrangement, upside-down, on the rolling carrier. Place the next largest one, draw around it, then cut out the opening. Continue doing this, as stated above, to create a large, fake, round cake.
Don’t go overboard when it comes to taping and gluing the cardboard boxes or poster board shapes together. The woman should be able to pop out without having to clobber her way out. To get her inside, simply lift the lightweight cake, have her crawl onto the rolling carrier, then set the cake over her. It’s a huge, and I guess pleasant, surprise for everyone at the bachelor party!
