I got this in a email. The cakes all have something animated on them. Very neat cakes.

If you click on each cake you can see the videos.

I stumbled onto this site too. I was in shock!! icon_eek.gif I'm a newbie so can't see myself being able to do something like this anytime soon. I'm curious if anyone else has done cakes similar.

Will,
Your cakes are amazing. I can't even begin to imagine how you do all that. I am a Halloween baby and I loved that cake. How long does it take to put something like that together???

Thank you so much for the compliments. It's nice to hear our efforts are appreciated.

I'd say usually about 2 weeks for a cake. The time it takes us has increase on the last few. After the Halloween cake the plan is to scale it back a bit. I think we actually started on the cake 2 weeks prior but we were shopping and planning a month before that. And I had my mother in law there the week prior and she worked with us until midnight all week. Too much work on that one, so yeah a bit less in the future I think.
We'll be doing the Elmo cake again next month. The one on the site was for a friend but my 2 year old really wants an Elmo cake for her 3rd bday. I wanted a new design but my wife is bent on the same cake. Well, at least I'll see if I can improve on it a bit icon_smile.gif . Since we throw it all away anyway I have a chance to go back and redesign.

If you want to make something move go to www.allelectronics.com. Good prices on motors, 1, 3, 4, 6 12, 30, 40, 60 rpm for cheap. But the shipping is usually around $8 so it's best to buy a lot of stuff to bring the average cost of shipping per item down. Uh yeah, that's my excuse for my wife anyway.

I'm so sorry, I've been so busy I forgot to check back for replies. If you just want to move the base you can use a lazy susan bracket. There are square and circular.

Circular

Square

Here are some sketches of ways to do it. You can take advantage of the hole in the center of the lazy susan bracket to hard mount the center of the carousel to the cake base. Then place the motor just about anywhere to get it to spin. You can glue a rubber band to the motor wheel to give it soem traction on the carousel floor.

Thank you so much for going above and beyond to help! I REALLY appreciate it! I sort of understand but come time I may PM you with questions if you don't mind. Again, thanks so much for breaking it down for little electronically-challenged me!
