For two decades, cakemakers have marked their calendars for the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show (OSSAS), a prestigious cake competition in Tulsa, OK. This year’s ballet theme inspired dozens of extraordinary cakes, and cakemaker and OSSAS 2012 Grand National Champion Vivian Pham created a definite showstopper. Innovative and stunning, this video provides a look at the process behind each detail on Vivian’s cake, all showcased in a captivating time-lapse video.

I wanted to share with the world how passionate I am about cake decorating. This video wasn’t meant to be a tutorial, but if people can gather some insight from this than that is great. This cake took over 300 hours to finish.It is a dummy cake, but everything that is covering the dummies are edible.

This was my third year competing at the Oklahoma Sugar Art Show, directed by Kerry Vincent.
