Does this look good?


This is actually a cake, not a sewing basket. Isn't this darling?

I found out about fondant. Where have I been? While researching more about fondant I came upon some amazing concoctions using fondants.


Custom designed Fondant Gucci purse that was created for a NBA Basketball Player- he gave  his wife the actual purse & wanted her Birthday Cake to match
A bride to be had this cake made for her groom.




This little guy looks so real


These are all cakes. A-Maz-Ing.


My mother turns 91 today so any of these fun cakes would be appreciated by her, but I think she would like the sewing kit cake the best. Happy Birthday, Mom.

Happy Birthday to your Mom!

They ARE amazing! I have a former neighbor that does cakes along these lines. She's good at it. LOVE the Chihuahua! Sure would be hard to cut into those masterpieces!

It is amazing what people can do with a cake. My wife has done some pretty good ones over the years - probably her best was a Jurassic Park one, complete with jeep.

Lucky you to still have your mom around to wish her a happy birthday! I also hope she has a great one. Those cakes were a real treat, so to speak. How cool! :-)

They are amazing! How talented. And Happy Birthday to your Mom, that's a great age!

I agree with Mrs. A above-it would be hard to cut into these cakes. I love that artistic efforts come in so many forms.

Those are cakes? I can't believe it! Truly amazing. Especially that little ratty dog. Can you imagine cutting his head off and having it looking at you from your plate! Could you take a bite????
Eeeewww.....

Happy 91st to your mom! Sounds like you've got good genes.

These cakes truly are amazing! I've heard of fondant, but don't know anything about it. A friend of mine is a "cake artist" and loves the stuff!

That chihuahua looks freakishly real! I think you'd enjoy the Cake Wrecks blog. They feature beautiful cakes like this on Sundays (like this one one but they show how bakers mangle cake orders the rest of the week. The commentary is a hoot, also.

Happy Birthday to your Mom!

Wow! So much artistry in these cakes. I bet they taste good, too, if you can bear to cut into them. Happy Birthday to your Mom.

I never heard of fondant. The cakes are so unusual. Good find.

Very cool!

Stickup Artist said...

Oh yeah, I've heard of fondant. I actually thought of taking a class in it, but then worried I'd probably eat up all the profits! Happy 91 to your Mom. Gosh, the things she's seen and all the history witnessed. I can't imagine but hope I find out...

I am absolutely floored by how non-cake like some of these look. Super talented people out there.

Happy 91st to your mommy!

I'm on Facebook with a cake artist. She posts some amazing photos, but nothing like that dog. I couldn't eat that one. The corn though, that would be a fun cake to cut into.

My husband's mother is 91 and still attempting to live on her own. Hope your's is doing ok.
