Adventures in Cake Decorating- 3D style

Since the rise of Cake Decorating t.v. shows such as The Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss the general public is catching on to what cake decorators can really do with their passion. Luckily for us now everyone wants a 3D cake for their special event. Don't get us wrong, we love a typical birthday cake/occasion cake, but we have to admit that taking on a 3D challenge is a lot of fun! This 3D frenzie has even prompted us to create a 3D Cakes section in our photo gallery. Here are some that we have done so far:

We know, you're thinking...what kind of 3D cake is that? Well, we wanted to start you off slow. So, check out the city scape and sky scraper made from our MMF on this Batman Birthday Cake.

Here is a Volcano Cake that we created a while back. The Volcano is made of cake and actually erupts red icing lava. The volcano was covered in our MMF. We flavored it with Strawberry Kiwi Kool-Aid for a kids birthday party. The cake was a hit!

This Red Sox themed birthday cake has an edible cake Baseball on the top of it. Still not enough 3D for you?

How about this cigar that we created for Dr. Huerter? It was carved from two sheetcakes, stacked and then covered in our chocolate MMF. The gold band around the cigar is edible as well.

This Coors Light Beer Bottle was made for a Groom's Cake along with a Longhorn shaped cake. The bottle was covered in our chocolate MMF and the label was hand piped onto MMF.

We were asked to do a cake for the Girard Medical Center annual Golf Tournament, so we decided to make something everyone would remember...a GOLF CART! The entire thing was edible except for the white polls holding up the top of the cart and the handles on the golf clubs. We really hoped they enjoyed it, because we sure had a good time making it!

Although this one might not be as impressive as the golf cart, we loved it and thought we would throw it in here. It is a 45 record player with a 45 Etta James record playing on it. It is all edible.

Last but not least is the Jeep we did for the Petroski Wedding. If you follow our blog you have probably already seen it. A few pictures of 3D cakes that we don't have are a life size, Dime Bag Darrel Guitar complete with an edible fondant hand and a Lightning McQueen (look a like) 3D Car Cake. If any of you were at these parties and have a picture, please send it our way. The camera decided to eat our photos from that weekend. Of course we have our famous Bachelorette party cakes, but we can't post those on here!

We might not be as good as The Ace of Cakes, but we try and we have fun doing it. So, hopefully with some luck there will be plenty more of these in the future!
