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 maiscreativedesigns@hotmail.com

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!

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...

this is beautiful. I know you don't have time to write instructions - but if you ever get around to it, you should write a book! Your cakes are just amazing!

Wow!!! You have really inspired me to a whole new level. I am a nurse and I am new to the decorating scene. Everyone's cake is beautiful so far, but your cake is the best I have ever seen- and IT IS NOT FONDANT!!! I love it. I will get the book. Thanks for the inspiration!!
