This giant Subway sandwich cake was made for my brother in law who owns and operates a Subway shop. I took on this project when I was still a beginning decorator, so of course this cake took an insane amount of time and effort to create. If I made the same cake now, I could probably do it so quickly and easily. ;D
- The bottom bun and filling are composed of 3 layers of sheet cake, and the top bun is 2 layers of sheet cake, all carved to the desired shape.
- The top bun is a separate cake added with dowel supports beneath.
- Both are covered in fondant and hand painted (made before I had an airbrush).
- The meat, cheese, and olives are made of fondant, and the lettuce is shredded coconut dyed green.
My local Subway lent me a couple sandwich wrappers to place the cake on. When all said and done, the cake was about six times the size of an actual sub!
The cake was a huge hit at the party!
