I've only heard tales of such machinery existing, but then I saw this:

Everyone! Run for your lives! These are going to take over the industry! Who needs a human being to dream up a beautiful custom designed wedding cake for your big day when you can just get a sheet cake off the assembly line? These will even write on the cake for you! It's quicker, cheaper and more consistent! (consistently low quality that is. Did you notice the bare space in the bottom border of the blue cake?)

There's more videos of other things the machines can do too. Who knew the Terminator could decorate. . .

I don't think most of the members here are in danger. Fondant, and gumpaste seem to be the rage. Does anyone care what cakes taste like anymore? Including what's on top?

Yeah, that's been around for many yrs already. But from what I have heard the investment is somewhere in the $60,000 range!

Shoot, I'm still working on forward! Hmm, maybe that's the trick? Perhaps I should try backwards first instead of forward???

I'm not worried... those cakes will still taste like the cardboard box they were baked in!!! Yes it's true. Cardboard boxes.
