See folks - it's as simple as can be to create your own 3D whale cake just like Ron Ben-Isreal! No problem - all the info you need is in this thread!

Well! icon_eek.gif If I knew it was THAT easy, I would have never bothered with all the dvds, books, and magazines. How come no one told ME? icon_lol.gif

That is blatantly ridiculous!

Okay, who is this Mindy Kobrin and where can I get some of whatever she's smoking? But seriously, those are the most tragic instructions I've ever read. Sounds like the cake would end up looking like two deformed boobs and a shoe box. icon_lol.gif

Wow... I'll bet that's exactly how he did it! Take a Wilton Easter Egg pan,a loaf pan, and a box mix or two - voila! 3-D whale!

Roll out fondant icing and knead in colors you'll need to create your whale, including blue for the body, red for the tongue, and white for the teeth, spout, and eyes

I bet that at least one person following those directions will knead all these colors together into one lump of fondant....

Wow! All you do is color the fonant and roll it out thin? I can do that! (Of course, my whale would look like a giant blue raisin bleeding from the mouth after tearing in a million times and tryin to smooth it out but who's really going to compare mine to his? This doesn't even take into consideration the millions of shades of blue we could be looking at here.) I can see someone trying this, stepping back to take a look at the finished product, and saying "WTH, why doesn't my whale look like his, with the luster dust finish and smooth, seemless fondant?" Why not start a beginner at the beginning before jumping into the 3D, fondant covered masterpieces?

Funny how the picture of her is bigger than the picture of the cake - I'm thinking nobody should write a blog on how to make a 3D cake unless they #1 did it and #2 posted the picture of how wonderful theirs came out compared to Ron Ben Israel! icon_rolleyes.gif People....I swear.

There are only 2 steps in 3D cake making? You guys have been hiding that from me, shame on you. All this time I thought that fondant and 3D creations were way beyond my current skill set. Now I realize its as easy as 1..2...done, no three even needed. Also did you all notice that there appears to be airbrushing on this thing, how the heck am i supposed to do that?

This is truely stupid lol.

PS Who in the wide world has a 'color palette' for a kid party. Honestly have we gone nuts?

oh you'll get a whale out of that all right - a bloated, decomposing beached whale. What a conversation piece.

OMG.......Must try....it's sounds soooooo easy. lol
There are so many visuals you can imagine.....

bwonderful's comment......one lump of fondant.

What about the tail.....Shape the tail a voila...it stands up???????

All I see is a large cake ball made by frustration!

Good laugh for the day....thanks for sharing

My evil mind has a theory that the cake designer gave the site dumbed down instructions to get them off his back. He must be sniggering as we speak..............................................

The instructions are so vague I don't know how anyone could follow them. I like the first sentence -
"Break out your favorite box cake mix, and prepare the pound cake recipe on the back. "

Do all cake mixes have a pound cake recipe on the back?

And it just goes downhill from there.

2 errors that stuck out to me:

1. She said to roll out the fondant as THINLY as possible. Umm, yeah sure, imagine the frustration of a beginner when the fondant tears as they are putting the fondant on the whale!!

2. She says how to make the tail, but doesn't mention how to get the tail to stay up in the air!! Do you just stick the loaf on the back with buttercream?

Is this lady serious? icon_confused.gif

Ok, someone with spare time needs to follow these instructions 100% and then post a picture of the finished product. LOL

I've heard of the minky whale and the hump-backed whale but never the loaf tin tail icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Also she says to just roll out your fondant and THEN kneaded in some color.....sounds Fun!

Yes one of us needs to definitely try to make this! That would be so funny to see how they would come out. Or we could have a whale showdown. icon_smile.gif LOL

A whale showdown BUT you have to follow her instructions EXACTLY. That would be hilarious.

Oh please do that and all that do make this whale by her instructions should mail a picture of it to her and be like "I followed your direction to a T why is my cake not looking like the one in the picture, what did I do wrong?" LMAO!!!!! icon_lol.gificon_cry.gificon_lol.gificon_cry.gif
