Step 6: Tiles, ASSEMBLE!

Time to apply your tiles! If you have a cube handy, get it out and scramble it to your liking and then apply your tiles accordingly. Paint the backs of each of your tiles with a small amount of water and apply to the cake. Patience, young Skywalker. This will take some time.
Thanks for the Instructable. I made this cake over the weekend for a rubik's cube party, and everyone loved it. <br>If you want to make the layers rotate (on a budget), stick 2 pieces of foam board with a rings cut from plastic between them, between each layer. Then insert a paper towel tube through the whole thing. The second and third layers will each sit on a piece of foam board, and be able to rotate independently around the paper towel tube, using the plastic rings like washers.
Looks delicious! You can solve this cake at http://www.rubikscubealgorithms.org/ : ) <br> <br>Sharing this on my facebook page!
Hi, thank you for sharing the idea. I'd like to share my attempt at making a Rubik's Cube cake.

Half the pictures were the same as here:<br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Pimp-That-Snack-Rubiks-Cube-Cake/<br><br>There were IDENTICAL pictures!
Good Eye! It is a little suspicious when two members manage to make the same instructable and both are using IDENTICAL pictures....
Don't worry, Pimp that snack explained to me the situation. Look at the ible comments.
Wow I have my birthday in a week and I hope I have time to make this awesome cake! I think your instructable is very nice and detailed. Thank you!
Made this cake for an 80's theme party I threw!<br><br>Everyone loved it!!!!<br><br>Check out the cake and the details of my party here:<br><br>http://elizabethdoodah.blogspot.com/2011/08/happy-30th-jeff-rubix-cube-cake-ecto.html
This was a lot of fun! The directions were quite helpful. My 13 y.o. daughter and I just made this Sunday for my son's 17th birthday.
That is awesome!
Hi! I was just wondering how difficult it was to make this cake?
What cakes do people recommend to use?<br><br>I just used my pound cake recipe but it does not rise enough so I need to start again.<br><br>Also where it says double the mix is that for each cake or just double and make 3 cakes out of it?<br><br>Thanks
You fricking win to the epic degree!
Cub.. I want it!
Do you think that you could maybe make it of rice crispy treats maybe...? And then cover it with fondant....?
It's pretty awsome... Too bad it's a lie....
If I make it from a chocolate cake, so that I don't need to use the ganache, what type of icing should I usefor the step:&quot; The next step is to cover your cake in a &quot;crumb coat&quot; with your frosting. Don't feel bad when this looks ugly. That's why it's a crumb coat. Just make sure to evenly coat your cube and let dry before you move on to the next coat of frosting. &quot;?<br>
It's not perfect but I learned ALOT and it was delicious
I am in the midst of making this cake... I used an 8x8 pan (it's all I could find) but the problem I have is that the layers seem sooo thin, I am icing them and putting the guanche on before I stack them. will this help make it thicker or what should I do to make it have thicker layers.
pretty dang good
Wow, yours is awesome :)
unfortunately, its also impossible on a cube
Amazing cake!!!
One little pet peve I have is when someone makes a replica Cube they make it so the colors on their replica are positioned in a way impossible to have on the real thing. I just want to say thanks for this awesome Ible and thanks again for making it realistic!
<strong>Completed!</strong> My first cake ever with several failures...<br/><em>Fondant:</em> 1st batch had too much oil.. 2nd time was practically perfect. Coloring &amp; kneading the fondant to the right color was VERY time consuming &amp; hard for me. I also rushed on the tiles because I was running out of time..<br/><em>Cake &amp; Icing</em>: I used an 8x8 cake pan and cut it into 4s, therefore the center was very moist and practically impossible to put icing on. That is why I end up with such an irregular shaped cake. The instructions on the black dye said to mix it with chocolate frosting, and I ended up with a matte black colored frosting. <br/>Thank you very much for posting this, it is really a great idea because my boyfriend loves the rubik's cube and he liked the cake, so mission accomplished. :D <br/>
The chalange is can you make it 5x5?
Excellent idea! Looking at some of the other cakes in the comments, there seems to be a tendency to have sagging at the corners. Perhaps a thin piece of cardboard under each upper layer would give some stability?
Wow. I hate baking, but this is a challenge I just HAVE to try! And now you've got me thinking... A friend of mine makes origami balls. I may be able to make one -- using your fondant techniques --as a cake for his birthday!
<em>Thanks for the instructions. They helped a lot!</em>
&nbsp;Thanks a ton cant wait to make this its going to be GREAT!
Thanks for the lesson.&nbsp; My friends loved the cake so much that it was the talk of the party!!<br />
It looks fantastic! Wonderful job! <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
that looks soooo good<br />
I attempted this cake for a friend's birthday... I&nbsp;used the store bought fondant, I was too nervous to try and make my own (being my first fondant cake). My biggest issue was the support system (or lack thereof). Anytime you make a layered cake it needs to have a central support system. Mine didn't, and barely survived the subway ride.
It looks awesome! Great job!<br />
i so plan on making this cake for my sweet 16 it is definitely the perfect cake since my theme is the 80s thanks for the amazing directions you make it fun.<br />
&nbsp;it looks very deicious
Wow, it looks great!<br/><br/>Im going to make this in celebration of 111009... the perfect g33k party. All I need is a case of Bawls rootbeer. <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.thinkgeek.com/caffeine/drinks/2818/">http://www.thinkgeek.com/caffeine/drinks/2818/</a><br/><br/>-PKT<br/>
How long does fondant keep?
Fondant keeps for a <em>long</em> time my friend.<br/>
I hate this instructable for one reason, and one reason only, it makes me soooooo hungry!!!!!
Making it for sister's surprise 30th b-day party. 80's theme.
great job!! :) very amusing directions, too :)
The rubiks cube is SO AWSOME! especially now that its a cake...
Could I possibly use nutella instead of ganache or frosting? Love the recipe! I'm getting ready to make it... And can I just buy premade fondant.. I'm scared of making my own XP Thanks
I have two concerns with that. One being the nutella. Nutella is generally a lot thinner and will not solidify the way frosting or ganache would. I'm not positive, but it could end poorly. As far as fondant, I one hundred percent recommend making it. It's ridiculously easy and the premade stuff is just awful. I promise you I'm not exaggerating. Regardless, I hope it turns out to your liking! I'd love to see pics!
