The thing about cakes like these is that yes, they look absolutely stunning, but personally I don't care what a cake looks like, I care what it tastes like. I've had some pretty disgusting wedding cakes but granted they looked awesome.

So congrats on the DD for sure, this cake looks stunning. But I do wonder what it tastes like.

Thank you VERY much! Your comment made me smile and I just had to tell you, that this was a cake for a competition. Underneath all the fondant and royal icing is styrafoam. So to answer your question, it tasted horrid :) But he made a 22 hour car ride to Ohio like a pro! Of my cake orders, not of the styrafoam variety, I've been told that I make some pretty tasty cakes. Thanks again

Hehe that is awesome.

I feel a lot better now knowing that is styro, cause when I bake my own cakes (In no way competitive, just for when I feel like having cake) I have such a hard time imagining how one could bake something so perfectly round.

But I just watched a video on fondant (never knew what it was until now) and I can't help but think it's utterly cheating! For me icing is mixing icing sugar with a bit of butter and a bit of milk, spending ages to get the taste and consistency right and then painting the cake really carefully until it looks nice and thick and smooth. But a sheet of nice-and-easy fondant? hehe. Each to their own :P

Thanks for getting back to me! :)

You should get some of that spray resin stuff that preserves food infinitely and spray that cake so you can have it like a sculpture!
