That is neat.
I made one yesterday as well, check it out
AI've just been asked to make this exact cake but had to turn the customer away as I'm petrified of snakes and its too realistic :( I felt like such an idiot lol Your cake looks awesome btw
I think you should try to make one just for fun, perhaps it'll help you get over the fear of snakes. especially if you cartoonify it a bit
The snakes are great!!!. How do you shape it the get the look?
Thanks to all of you!
It was extremely difficult to carve this thing out so it made sense!
I have a boa as a pet, my husband is into snakes lol so it was really inspiring to look at it and copy it.
As far as your fear of snakes, I think once you get in the process of making it, baking the cakes, carving and all that you'll be too focused to look at the big picture. It wasnt until I was completely done that I took a step back and saw the final product, before then, I was all up on there getting the small details done. You should try it!!
Did you use the tutorial from Northstar cakes? I saw this online that had the exact same colors that you used. Wondered if it was worth buying?
ALol!!! I just showed my family and they thought it was real!!! Really cool
WOW!! That is so cool ... awesome job ! Looks very realistic
You did a fantastic job. I thought it would be a lot harder. Guess it will go on my to do list.
Awesome job well done!!!!
Bumblebeez.... I am with you... the cakes look fabulous but tooo life like for me! lol....
AThis is amazing. I want to make one for my boyfriend as he is a snake breeder. That looks like the albino burmese python he has. Very realistic!

I want to try a "snake" can you please tell me how you get the Textured skin? Thanks in advance
