Spine Cake

This cake was for an orthopedic surgeon that specializes in spines. There is a copper pipe that is supporting the spine and is attached through the cake board. The spine is 50/50 gumpaste-fondant and the cake is triple chocolate. One more lesson learned - make extra certain that your brushes are EXTREMELY clean before using again. I wanted to do a light bone-colored wash of foodcoloring over the bones so they weren't stark white... and the brush I chose had a tiny smidgeon of red left in it. Pink bones!

That is way too neat. I was wondering if someone had been in a skydiving accident.

Amazing!! Did you mold the bones or sculpt them? Also love the silver!

Thanks for the compliments! I sculpted the bones.. not that hard actually. I was going for an examining table look with the silver, but it didnt really cut it!
