Those look like computer generated pictures of cakes to me. JMHO

some of the pics do look computer generated, but some look like the cc's are on dummies with the top tiers (without cc's) are maybe real cake. its an cool way to display them!

Whatever it is I thought it was pretty and a nice change for a display. I think I'll try dummies with real CC's. Maybe a real cake for topper to save.

wow! these ARE really pretty! I do too think that most are computer generated...but it would look like a nice alternative to flowers on a cake...I am just not a flower person though icon_smile.gif VERY COOL idea! icon_biggrin.gif

if you try going to cake journal she has instructions on making cake displays that could look like that-i've gone to pinkcakebox and she uses cupcakes alot with a small cake topper. whatever they are it's a cute and different idea

I like them..
I dont know about computer generated, but some do look like the background was changed in photoshop to match the cakes though JMHO

debster Posted 9 Jul 2008 , 1:19am

Yeah, I just thought that it was a neat idea, it's amazing what one person doesn't think of the other one does. We NEED each other. icon_biggrin.gif

mcdonald Posted 9 Jul 2008 , 1:26am

wonder if you could use large boxes, upside down and cover.

psurrette Posted 9 Jul 2008 , 1:27am

I think she used the program called wedding cake design pro to make the displays

danizabe Posted 9 Jul 2008 , 1:32am

mama mia,i dont care if they were computer made or hand made but its a great idea and beautiful too super wowicon_biggrin.gif

michellesArt, I didn't see anything on the site about a cake journal. Could you please put the URL?

CakeWhizz Posted 9 Jul 2008 , 6:21pm

I think CakeJournal's name on CC is Louise.

alicegop Posted 10 Jul 2008 , 1:41am

I think those are cake dummies.... what a cool idea! I could put a real cake on the top! REUSABLE! SCORE!

SweetResults Posted 18 Jul 2008 , 12:44pm

Brilliant display!! I may have to set up some dummies for this - would work so amazing with a Cupcake Bar!

loriemoms Posted 18 Jul 2008 , 1:05pm

they do look like something odd was done to them...fixed up or something.

My question is will real cake hold that many cupcakes up without sagging? (they are pretty close to the edge)

SweetResults Posted 18 Jul 2008 , 1:20pm

I don't think they are meant to be real cakes, just fondant covered dummies. They are the best displays I have seen, other than when people use real and different cake plates at different heights and styles mixed together, I like that, too.

You're correct.
If you click on 'how to order', it states that they are cake stands decorated to match your cupcake choice/decor.
They only do cupcakes.

I found the cake journal. I didn't realize you were talking about a different website, I thought it was a section on that one. :blush:
