When I finally stopped laughing I remembered another cake I was not so proud of.  Lets just say carved cakes have not been easy for me to learn.

nancy lee,  You know its been a couple of years since I made it.  I know its bc but can't remember if I colored it first or put food coloring directly on the bc and swirled it around.  I'm pretty sure that's what I did tho. lol

 

JWinslow, I don't know who was more scared, me or the cat rofl..

I made this for my wife's birthday a few years ago 9" rounds 2 ft high. I didn't even think about using a smaller cake it took all day but she loved it.

Those figures aren't bad at all, they look like charichatures!

I think this is my third or fourth cake...maybe fifth.    Anyway, I had just moved into a new house about 1 block from the ocean.   Little did I know that I moved into the most humid friggin house of all time.    The top is the before pic the night before, not perfect but OK considering I was working without a smoother.    Halfway through the night I realized disaster had struck.  I even ripped off the top tier to redo the supports (poly dowels) thinking I had buggered it up very badly...maybe the bottoms weren`t flat enough because I think the one side the dowel tilted....   The cake was MELTING!  When we cut into it all the strawberry BC had melted into the cake.   I didn`t even complete my design which was to hand paint the tiers with flowers, and plants because the fondant had rippled so much.   Also, I tried to make the Rapunzel topper (1st one!) with zero sculpting tools other than a toothpick.  Haha, she also softened, and I honestly had no idea what I was doing.

Oh and I stopped the outline on the sun because I didn`t like it.   Should`ve just rolled with it but I covered nearly all of it with hair.   I did a new Rapunzel cake this year.   This cake still niggles at me for the wreck that it was.

I can't believe I'm about to ask for attention for this monstrosity, but like all addictions, the first step is admitting you are powerless before buttercream...

 

so I made this cake last year for a friend and drove it from San Diego to Yuma Arizona. It was actually fine until we crossed into Yuma, then it just started to melt! We rushed to the venue (a private home) only to find there was no refrigeration. Slowly, inevitably, everything just drooped or fell off the cake. My rough icing technique turned spongy and the colors morphed from delicate to morbid. Finally, the cake itself started to break apart. Not the supports, mind you, the actual cake was unable to maintain it's own structure. I've delivered cakes in heat before, but there is something aggressively damaging about the Arizona heat...

 

In the end I had to beg the bride to serve the cake before it collapsed completely. On an upside, it was completely room temperature, and very MOIST. Haha!

 

 

roughly reassembled, even in the air conditioning I couldn't keep it together. it's already tipping dangerously to one side. Oh and the flowers which were made of individual petals were the first to go. they are just stuck back on the cake with huge blobs of BC holding them together. 

*

like a faded bloom, it was pretty...once *snort*

 

*edited* In hindsight I realize that I should have taken it down to two tiers, frosted it smooth and covered it with flowers from the grocery store. the rest could have been served as kitchen cakes.

This is the first fondant covered cake I ever made. I really had absolutely no clue whatsoever what I was doing and did the crumbcoat with a butterknife!

Although I don't have pictures of it handy, mine was a 3-tiered fondant covered wedding cake with fresh roses.  Very simple, or so you think-grins.  It was for a friend's wedding and I was doing it as a gift for them.  Unfortunately, my husband was also in the hospital for what turned out to be colon cancer.  (He is fine now, thank goodness)

 

I had to transport it 60 miles up a bumpy winding mountain road in my Toyota Matrix.  It had been in the 60's the entire week before, but on this day, the weather decided to warm up to 90.  By the time I got it up there, the layers were sliding and collapsing.  I tried to assemble it the best I could (No local bakeries around) and I covered it in roses.  It held out long enough to get a picture and serve.  It looked pretty covered in roses, but it wasn't what they wanted.  I offered to refund them their money and make another cake for them for free, but they said no.

 

They did say the cake was delicious though.  French vanilla cake with lemon curd and blackberry filling.  I was so embarrassed.

 

In retrospect, I think my fondant was too thick and the weight of it caused the layers to collapse.  I know better now.  We learn from our mistakes, and I will chalk that one up to experience.

That Wonder Woman cake just makes me so happy, I kind of love it... hehe.
Your poor hand must have been dead after all those stars!

 

You should do one now, and do a before and after kind of deal :)

I love your Wonder Woman! ;) Although, she does look a little like Jabba the Hutt's daughter... good grief, it's not as bad as my first cake. I tried to sculpt a volcano for my son's birthday, it turned out like a mound of brown frosting. (With marshmallow clouds and red candy melt lava..wasn't I clever) :-t

YES, my hand was dead! I remember that. I know I was awful clever to pipe the rope, and hair, and breast plate, though! It looks so much better than stars, too, lol.

 

Maybe I can get my daughter order one for her 10th birthday ;-)

HAHAHAHAHAA!!!!!!!!!!! That cake is awesome, lol, lemme see.....

I was really proud of that cake...sniff! I had the grace to be embarrassed over the Wonder Woman cake, but at time, this shark cake made me proud! It is a wonder Mold, with the hump (from baking it) cut off and placed on top, to make the pointy "nose" of the shark.

A[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3094024/width/200/height/400[/IMG] it was indeed a cake disaster. But my little cousin randy (whose 6'4") loved it for his birthday present. He has autism and he expresses himself a lot by quoting movies. Three stooges is omenof his favorites.
