Its basically using a turntable like a potters wheel, using the same techniques you would with clay - from memory I don't think there is cake under that - its just a blob of ??  buttercream/cream

Well, not certain - doesn't mean YOU couldn't do it on a cake - but I think this video is more to show what 'might' be possible - the bit where it goes into hemisphere is where I think you see it isn't really cake

 

This might be good for people who DO have pottery experience but for somebody just starting out with cakes I'd say there were heaps easier ways to do it - this is NOT as easy as it looks..... speaking from somebody who has had a crack at pottery on a wheel  LOL

They actually start with frozen cream.  I don't think there's cake anywhere near it.

I love the way he uses the spoon on the sides of the cake!! Saw this video a couple of months ago but could not remember where to find it again.  I also think he is using some kind of cream or bettercreme.  Thanks for posting!/Mary

I just wish I could make a turntable spin that fast and evenly...

carmijok Posted 30 Dec 2012 , 4:35am

ASeems to me you could get an old turntable and turn it into something similar...

newbaker55 Posted 30 Dec 2012 , 5:06am

Saw that video some time ago...amazing!

 

Let me be a witness right now....this CANNOT BE DONE with a Wilton turntable and butterceam! I found hardened blobs of icing under my top cabinets, between the mini-blind slats & on top of my fridge for weeks after I tried it! Thought my poor dog had a tumor there for a minute, but he finally licked it all off.icon_biggrin.gif

Evoir Posted 30 Dec 2012 , 5:19am

What makes you think there is no cake under the icing? I think there could be like a 6" x 2" round with a bucket load of icing on the top and sides, which is them removed strategically using this technique.

 

One of my turntables can spin this fast, but I think I'd need a third hand to spin it while trying to co-ordinate all the other stuff, LOL!

practicemakesperfect Posted 30 Dec 2012 , 6:32pm

Evoir, if you don't mind sharing, what company turntable do u have?

Thanks!

remnant3333 Posted 30 Dec 2012 , 7:24pm

I wish I could work a cake like the video shows!!! Speaking of turntables in the beginning, I bought the Wilton turntable but found it to be very cheap.  I went into Big Lots and found a glass turntable that is ten times sturdier than the Wilton one. I never use the Wilton turn table any more. The new one I bought out of glass only costs me 8 dollars. If Istill had the receipt for the Wilton one I bought at Micheal's I would have taken it back.  It never gets used because it is wobbly and can not handle the weight of a regular 10 inch two layer cake with all the icing!! Some of the Wilton products I am very disappointed with. 

newbaker55 Posted 30 Dec 2012 , 9:44pm

Me too, Remnant! (wish I could work a cake like that AND about the Wilton disappointment)

 

Although lightyears away from proficiency still, I caught the decorating bug in Sep 2009. I rushed out to buy all the Wilton supplies & pans I thought I would need for my new hobby, thinking they were top-of-the-line products...they are now in boxes waiting for me to sell at a garage sale.

 

I have since replaced most of my tools and pans with the good stuff :) although I still get some good use from a few of the Wilton gadgets.

 

I still use the cheapo turntable though because the last few times I tried to order a good one online, 2 different sites were out of stockicon_sad.gif and I'm not lucky enough to find one locally.

-K8memphis Posted 30 Dec 2012 , 10:01pm

I think we should get foot pedals installed on our turntables like the old fashioned pedal sewing machines.

 

Third hand growing as Evoir opined also good perhaps more difficult but could be used for many other things as well.

I am still laughing at your description! I have this picture in my head of your kitchen & your poor dog, but I bet he enjoyed licking the unexpected treat????

newbaker55 Posted 30 Dec 2012 , 11:38pm

Yes he did, Superstar...until he got diarrhea from the sugar overload.

 

He apparently didn't  realize he was the victim of a drive-by frosting incident until it hardened. He's a coward and runs for cover whenever there's cursing in the kitchen. The blob of icing landed near his rear, just kinda out of immediate tongue reach. I watched him in a neck-stretching licking frenzy the next day and had to investigate.

 

He looks like he's wearing a bad weave anyway, with hair sticking up all over the place so I had to feel around to see WTH he was so intent on dislodging. There it was, but all sticky from dog spit. He was devastated when I removed the remains of 'the tumor'...sniffed around the floor for 2 days trying to find a sugar fix.

 

So that you can get a better mental image...here's Farley (didn't change the date on my camera...this was taken about 6 months ago)

Farley is so cute & thank you for the picture, this is still one of my favorite stories!

Evoir Posted 2 Jan 2013 , 12:03am

Re: my turntable brand...it doesn't have a brand name on it, but its cast aluminium and it weighs a fair bit. I absolutely love it.

 

You can buy a similar sort of thing from Hobby/Craft shops, in small and large sizes. The best thing is that they stay put. Not like that Wilton $#@^&%*($&%.

 

NB...my disdain for Wilton relates to a particular incident with a wedding cake and the failure of the Wilton tilting turntable.

kikiandkyle Posted 2 Jan 2013 , 6:59am

AAccording to the website of the school it's done in clay. They have photos of some of the other cakes and its obvious that there's no actual cake under all the 'frosting', some of them are filled like baskets with fruit, some with a colored gelatin.

RoseBonbon Posted 4 Jan 2013 , 10:40am

sooo its final judge.gif

no cake under this blob of cream  

and dont try to do this at home icon_biggrin.gif

but it still fun to watch

cazza1 Posted 4 Jan 2013 , 2:08pm

Sounds like it's worth buying a dog and a Wilton's turntable just for the fun!

This may be late in the conversation but I got my turn table from Ikea... just the $6 lazy susan it is sturdy and all wood... it has held everything I have but on it from cakes to stuops to tiffles... it was a well spent $6.
