I was surfing flickr and saw this in the international cake competition:

Oh my God this is so amazing! I don't know how the fur is made...it looks like individual strands but I doesn't look like piped royal icing.

This was from the Birmingham Cake International, it was so amazing to see in person. I couldn't figure out how it was done.

It didn't win 1st.. it came in 3rd...

These are the winners in that category

If you click on the very first link to Flickr at the top of this post, once the photo loads, click on sebel2000 which appears next to the copyright notice. This will take you to the photographers Flickr site where she posted several photos from this cake show.

Oh my golly goodness! How on earth does one get that good? I'd have to live 200 years to cake like that!

platinumlady Posted 26 Feb 2011 , 6:02am

Amazing

Ursula40 Posted 26 Feb 2011 , 6:54am

The Koreans won quite a few awards last year, beautiful and very detailed work

Kaylani Posted 26 Feb 2011 , 5:32pm

Anyone have a guess on how it was done? icon_eek.gif

Davwattie Posted 26 Feb 2011 , 5:58pm

it's looks like a better version of the grass tip.

IT looks amazing though icon_surprised.gif

weirkd Posted 26 Feb 2011 , 6:01pm

How the heck he didnt get first is beyond me! That is amazing!

debster Posted 26 Feb 2011 , 6:11pm

My personal opinion is that cat beats the heck out of those other cakes, though they were NICE too!!!

SweetHope Posted 26 Feb 2011 , 7:19pm

Here is Lindy Smith's comment about this cake on her blog: "...but this one by Song Eun Sook was definitely the most impressive. It looked as if each piece of fur had been rolled by hand how long did that take?" Lindy Smith is someone who knows a lot about cake decorating - that's for sure.
Absolutely amazing technique!!! icon_eek.gif

Sassy74 Posted 26 Feb 2011 , 7:57pm

O.M.G. I can't begin to imagine how that was done, or how long it took lol .

KayMc Posted 26 Feb 2011 , 9:49pm

That is really amazing. My hand hurts just looking at it!!!

Davwattie Posted 27 Feb 2011 , 12:18am

just been watching cake challenge on food network and they were doing Disney Pixar.

One man did Sulley out of Monsters Inc and he did his fir with a grass tip! it looked amazing but it feel backwards right on him oops icon_surprised.gif

Kitagrl Posted 27 Feb 2011 , 12:36am

Wow that fur was amazing. I wonder if she piped it a strand at a time with a #1 tip????

I don't understand the one that won the gold, the chocolate dragon thing in the cake box. Huh? Oh well.

i said "huh?!" as well!

I think that it is gumpaste that has been extruded through the tiniest of holes and then individually rolled out and attached with tweezers. Lynn McKay does something very similar, although I havent ever seen her do it THAT tiny!! icon_eek.gif

Oh that sounds like WAY too much work! haha.

tryingcake Posted 27 Feb 2011 , 1:51am

It looks like clay to me also - although I would never have the patience to to do that. Amazing!!

Evoir Posted 27 Feb 2011 , 2:14am

Looks like a grass tip, or even a handmade multi-hole tip.

Years ago I was taught by an old pro cake decorator how to pipe using a hypodermic needle - that's commitment!! I can't imagine how long this took if the decorator used a needle method!!
