Hi All!
I am attempting to make a snake cake for my friend's daughter, who is having her 8th birthday. She wants a realistic cake and I am SO new at this. I've googled "snake cake" and found some pretty cool ones that actually look like a real snake. I'm sure I'm over my head, but have 3 months to practice so am going to give it a shot. Do you know if there is a pan that would allow me to back a round cake? Like a tunnel or something? Is this a stupid question? lol Or do I have to make a regular cake and sculpt the snake out of it? Geez, I hope not! I've got great ideas to use fondant to get the skin and scales right and am sure, with some practice, I will be able to get that done good. I am just nervous about shaping the snake and could use some pointers. Thanks to anyone who has any tips.

i'm sure if u look at other snake pics on this site you'll find other steps people did to make their cakes.
good luck!

there's the horseshoe pan, that would make a long snake if you cut it in half and place the pieces end to end.

I made a snake cake last year using the horseshoe pan. I don't know if this is what you are looking for, but here is the pic. Hope this helps!
