Today I disassembled my cake from the Mid-Atlantic Cake Show! It was sculpted cake, so there was no way for me to save it. Boy did it hurt!! icon_cry.gif After all the hours, blood, sweat and tears I just couldn't bring myself to throw those poor little people in the trash!! Sooo, for a little while they will be residing on a shelf in my kitchen! I think next year I'll do something that I can do on a dummy. Anyone else who did a sculpted cake have the same experience or am I just obsessive? LOL

oh no!! I loved that shoe!! I don't blame you for not wanting to throw them out! They'll keep for a long time! My cousin still has his Redskins man nearly 2 years later - not growing yet! icon_smile.gif

Could you sculpt a styrofoam shoe and place it on there, then you could keep it?

I had to leave my sheep behind at MACS - funny how attached you get!

I still have my scarecrow cake that I did for a contest! I can't bring myself to get rid of it. It is a dummy...so I can keep it for awhile!

I must be wierd then.. I have no problem getting rid of stuff. All of the dummies I have done have been disassembled the day after I did them. I do still have the little Emily from my DD's castle birthday cake.. but she wanted to keep it so I couldn't toss it. I am going to mount it on a small styro disk for her.

Wgoat5 - I love your bugs! How adorable!

Beachcakes - What a shame to have to leave your cake behind. I loved that cake and I know how much work must have gone into that. If I had known you had to leave it behind, I would have brought it home with me! I would have adopted those cute little sheep! lol

Just an FYI - I had a support system in my cake that I wanted to save so I had to cut the cake before throwing it out. Believe it or not, after sitting for about 2 weeks the cake was still edible! Not that I would have given it to anyone after that length of time! icon_eek.gif But just out of curiosity, my husband and I took just a little taste and it tasted ok. A little dry, but ok! I was amazed. I expected it to be moldy!

How long will fondant figures last? I added tylose before I made it. Do I need to spray it with anything to preserve it? Thanks!
