Stack of pillows

Made this at a Collette Peters class called "Cake Sculpture". It is a dummy cake covered in fondant. Painted and sponged with luster dusts.I ran out of time before I could put the finishing touches on the pillows, but I was happy with the results. Unfortunately, when stacked, the cake came out lopsided! Anyway, I'm anxious to try this with real cake. :)

Very nicely done! I'd love an excuse to make a pillow cake; I've been wanting to try one for ages. I'm always amazed at how much luster dust Collette uses--it's no wonder her cakes cost a small fortune!

I agree with TERRYHORTON, I would love to see a turorial on how to make the shape and get all the edges so neat....Please? It is a beautiful cake and I would also loved to have taken her class.

I would love to know if you have tried this in real cake - very nice. I have an order for one very soon and was going to do the bottom half of the pillow in rice crispy treats so I could mold it - any thoughts?

Can't wait to see what you do with this in cake. Real pillows would be lopsided anyway. I think more attractive that way. Amazing job. Love color and texture choices!
