Sculpted Cake Creation!

It took us one week to make this pretty awesome sculpted cake! This was the first time I've ever done a large scale, 3-D cake like this. We were of course all following the teacher's direction, but nevertheless, I'm pretty darn pleased with how our cake turned out. It was a team project and my table-mate Haley and I worked really well together to build ours.

Its hard to tell from the photo, but the cake stands about 3 feet high. All of the elements were techniques we learned throughout the 4 months- like airbrushing (soccer ball, teddy bear, and wood grain) blown sugar balls, pulled sugar bows. The luggage and boat are 100% cake, as is the smaller red ball! Pretty cool to sculpt a round cake. The teddy bear is sculpted out of Rice Krispy Treats and covered in fondant.

The little boat was hand carved too. The mast and sail are made of very fragile pastillage and then airbrushed blue.
