Toilet and Plunger Cake

Toilet and Plunger Cake

This cake was for my brother-in-laws birthday, he owns his own plumbing business and I wanted to do something funny and I knew he would get a kick out of this toilet cake.

For the toilet I used a loaf pan, oval pan, and 8" square pan. The Plunger I used the mini wonder mold pan. Once the cakes were cooled I stacked and trimmed them down to make the shape of a toilet (I took a picture of my toilet to give me a visual). I used dowel rods to support the weight of the bowl and cut down a cake board to the size of the bowl.

Once everything was cut down I iced the bottom and back portion of the toilet first, then the bowl and placed it on the toilet. For the toilet seat I melted white chocolate, poured in the oval pan, then placed in the freezer to harden. Once the chocolate was ready I lightly tapped the pan on the counter to loosen the chocolate and turned the pan upside down to take out the chocolate. I filled a decorating bag with melted chocolate and used a #3 tip to write on the lid, let it dry for a few minutes. I cut a whole the size of the lid in the back of the bowl attached a dowel rod to the chocolate using melted chocolate and a heated up dowel rod and place the lid in the whole behind the bowl.

For the plunger I mixed burgundy and a very little bit of brown to get the color. And for the handle on the plunger I used a plastic dowel rod with one end covered in plastic wrap then taped around the dowel rod so chocolate would not come out, poured melted chocolate using a funnel into the dowel rod and set in a cup standing up in the freezer to harden. Once the chocolate was done I just pushed the chocolate out of the dowel rod with a wooden dowel rod and placed in the middle of the plunger.

For the water in the toiled I used Wilton gel with blue coloring and made the droppings with melted chocolate.

How did you get the "toilet water" not to soak into the cake?

Since it is piping gel it sits on the icing and does not seep through like actual water would
