    Re: San Diego Cake Club Cake Show - Photo Heavy

    Wow... they always make it looks so easy to do these on tv. I've never worked with fondant, someday I'd like to try it but I know nothing I could come up with would ever look as good as any of these!

    It is all about taking classes and practicing. I take classes every chance I get even if I already done something similar to what they are doing just so I can get another teachers thoughts and ideas.

    OH my goodness those are awesome, so many talented and creative people!
    Thanks for those, would be fun to try if only once.

    I fear it could be quite frustrating.

    No, actually those cakes are made from cake dummies. Very few people if any actually use real cakes in this type of cake show.

    Re: San Diego Cake Club Cake Show - Photo Heavy

    So fun too look at these! My sister wanted a big fancy cake for her mad hatter tea party birthday this year, but she hates the taste of fondant (I agree). Fondant can look really cool and smooth, but to me it doesn't look like food (or feel like it in my mouth, yuck). For her cake, we found a book from The Whimsical Bakehouse. The book has recipes for cakes, filling, and icing, and step by step tutorials for the decorating techniques they use. Their philosophy is that cakes should taste as good as they look, so all of the decorating is done almost entirely in buttercream frosting and chocolate accessories. It's really amazing! They've got tutorials on their website too. I gotta say, that cake tasted GREAT.

    I agree that fondant is not the best tasting thing but it is here to stay. Most people who I make cakes for ask for non-fondant cakes. I may use it for decoration purposes but not to cover the whole cake. But with that said most brides will still ask for it as it does give cakes a wonderful look. Most servers will just tear off the fondant before serving the piece of cake.

    Those cakes are seriously amazing. I watch stuff like Ace Of Cakes and Amazing Cakes, but wow.....the time, work and attention to detail and such that goes into making these. I wish I could make a cake even half as good as those.

    But my vote goes to the Castle cake. That flat out amazed me to see the detail and everything on it, just beautiful. It'd be my dream to someday have a cake like that, but I can easily imagine the cost..and it's not pretty like the cake. Worth every penny though, yes.

    If you are talking about the Disneyland castle that is actually all gumpaste no cake, and it won 2nd place for the gumpaste catagory.
