Leopard Cake (With Red Shoe)
My oh my! I am totally impressed!!
How do you do this? If you would mind sending me instructions at (...) you
Awesome!! I need to go buy that book!
That is great It looks so real.
Had to look twice to make sure they weren't real. Awesome job!
I can't believe its a cake...too real looking to eat
Wow! is all I can say!
Hi I am so IMPRESSED with this picture I showed my DH and he said GO my gosh that is nice if you wouldn't mind sending me the instructions on how to do this I would greatly be forever thank ful. My son would love a cake like this for his birthday. If you wouldn't mind sending it to me my email is [email protected]
hi i'm new to this your cake looks so real you did a great job
HERE HERE! cjf could I ask for instructions? [email protected]
Time constraints don't permit me to write instructions for my cakes. Maybe someday I'll find time to write them all down in a book. My advice is to try to carve something....use a model (I used the actual tennis shoe for this), graph it larger or smaller, bake your sheet cakes and start carving. I didn't take any classes, just used Roland Winbeckler's book and taught myself. It's a good place to start....and remember - it's just CAKE!
they look great! i thought they were real at first
This cake is the best for my husband! How do you make it? can I have the instructions please! at [email protected]
what are sheet cakes.... we have not heard of that here in australia

Wow! Iced in BC! Amazing. Could you carve me a pair :lol: It would save me about $80 today.lol Great cake again!
Which one of Roland Winbeckler's books would you recommend?
His book on cake sculpting. You will find most of the Debbie Brown books very helpful, too.
The customer reviews on Amazon.com for the cake sculpting book is pretty bad. Did you personally find the book useful? Is your viking head cake inspired from the book?Since I love your cakes, based on your response I may go out and buy the book.
Yes, the Viking is based on his book. I have found that a lot of cake decorators want very explicit directions...size and shape of cakes, how high, etc. Roland's book teaches the method and concept and doesn't provide explicit directions for each of his cakes. That doesn't make it a 'bad' book. If you understand the method and concept, you can reproduce any item as a 3-D cake AND get the number of servings ordered. He teaches to graph an item from the side and from the top so you can place the suppo...
