these are from deviantart I don't know if you all are on here much I doubt it because its mostly a pen and paper place but I could be wrong its a HUGE community, but today this showed up in the daily deviation (best of the site daily) and I felt as though I should share. click the image to make it bigger. I don't often see cakes show up in this list I can think of only one other instance, but I liked this. if one of you made it congrats

Oh my, that is amazing. The neatness and precision of many of her cakes are the best I've seen. I wish I can do the same.

Two of the pics are in books I have seen (one in Toba's book). The one with the hailspotting and the tower'y one. I don't know if I remember her name as being the creator but I'll try to remember to check.

Macakes, they dont teach stringwork like that in pastry school. If you want to learn it, you can go to a class with someone like Kim Morrison that teaches basic and advanced stringwork. Not sure where you live, but I know we have a couple of cake shows like OSSAS and they have cake artist's that give various classes. THe one here in the Mid Atlantic area has classes with Kim along with Geraldine Randsome who teaches Australian stringwork. The key to this art is to have constant pressure when piping, the right consistancy of RI, and a steady hand! I havent got as advanced as this woman has(or as good) but I was able to do some of it after tinkering around!

After reading this thread I decided to visit the site to look for more cakes. I ran across this one so far. It's pretty, too!

Nicholas Lodge wrote a book for the international sugar art society or something or other and i covers string work and is a very good reference book.
