I love Rosebud Cakes designs! There are so many techniques they use, that I can't figure out. How do they make large numbers, portraits or back drops that stick above the cake? Is it just butter cream frosting on form core boards? If so how do you prevent it from getting ruined while inserting and transporting?

Also some of their 3D items look like frosted styrofoam, can that be correct?

they do quite a bit on foamcore I believe.. ON the cake pictures, most of the time they tell you which isn't edible

Stitches, I adore Rosebud Cakes If I could be a fly on their wall I would!!!!
My best guess is they start with a foamcoare base or fondant bace and buttercream overtop. What incredible artists! I wuld love for them to come out with a book!!!

Say they do use foamcore...........it is light in weight, but it's still a challenge to get it to stand straight up as a back drop or on a cake. I just don't get what they are doing!

They take photos of completed cakes, yet in my head it would seem many of them would need to be un-assembled to transport them. So that would have to be quite durable. Much more then sticking skewers into cake layers. They have one photo where the cake has wings that come out on an angle from the cake. Nothing edible I know of can support that, all I can think of is they're using a full styrofoam cake dummy on those layers. Can that be?

I only worked with the frosting that you use for dummy cakes once in my life and that was long ago. Can you manipulate that type of frosting to get the effects they do on foamcore and on 3D objects?


My head spins when I look at their work, my heart pound quickly and I go crazy looking at their beautiful artistry.
