Thanks for re-starting this thread ceshell! I'm the one who resurrected the post recently from November and didn't realize it was gone. I just thought no one had any awful cakes! icon_smile.gif I'll repost my tugboat cake that I recently found a photo of! You can see what CC has done for me! icon_smile.gif

This was for the christening of my parents' new boat in 2002. There was a ceremony and a party for 75 people in July in 90* weather with no AC in the restaurant. (This is actually the Good Picture! icon_lol.gif ) Anyway, having decorated my sons cakes (Wilton pans - star method) for a few years, I decided I was a real pro and I'd make a 3D replica of them on their boat! What was I thinking? I had never heard of leveling a cake before ( or smoothing for that matter!!) and support? what's that?? The unproportional wheelhouse was made of candy melts and just stuck on top of the cake. (It later melted and the weight of the wheelhouse sliced right through the cake) The marzipan people (never heard of fondant) had orange skin and also melted. All of the accessories except the swedish fish, are from the craft store. The scary part is that even then, I thought this cake was the most amazing cake creation ever! When I found this picture a couple of weeks ago, I nearly died! 75 people saw this cake!!! icon_cry.gif

Well, uh, the unlevel cake looks like...waves! Yeah! You MEANT to do that, right? icon_biggrin.gif

And sorry, the wheelhouse made me laugh... It's HUGE! Yay for improvement, though! It's nice to know where we came from!

I figured I'd repost my least favorite (and worst!!!) cake here. This was my first attempt at fondant. I made it from scratch and my grandparents got ill so my mom decided to freeze it to withstand the long month interlude before we could reschedule the celebration. Needless to say, freezing fondant is not a good idea and I had no idea what to do to it to make it more pliable. Therefore, it resulted in ripped fondant and big gaping holes. The snowflakes (out of RI) kept breaking so ended up making some out of sucker molds. The thing holding the snowflakes is made out of sugar. Possibly my most favorite thing about this cake. Thanks for looking (and enjoying a laugh or grimace).

Without a doubt, that "RUSSIAN" cake is the most hideous thing I think I've ever seen. And Edna, as much as I think your cake is executed well...yeah, um, just a bit tacky. That bride needs to lay off the pipe fo' sho.

This isn't my worse, because I can't get my scanner to work for me and the really bad ones are pre-digital camera. I have two portfolios, one that I show and one I use to, but now I keep it hidden away for my own reflection. If I can get the scanner cooperate I'll post another. But this is one I DEFINITELY am not too proud of. It was a black and gold fleur di lis theme, but this is a HORRIBLE cutter. It looks more like airplanes in a dog fight or something.

WOW... icon_cool.gif I need my sunglasses as not to be blinded by that one edna...

Okay here's two more of mine I HATE... One looks like a confetti factory threw up on it and the other was in my early fondant days. The green fondant kept ripping and I was under a time constraint. I wanted to do the "drapes down the cake" and so I just did it this way to conceal the rips. It looks like a ugly green rose volcano.

I can't believe we lost chewbacca! But I think the bear cake will take his place. I about died when you said your dd was afraid of it!!

Plus the fluer de lis looking like birds is pretty good too.

I'll look for pictures of my worst cake but I think I might have hid it somewhere really special.....

LOL, bwonderful I think Chewbacca is still in there! The original thread is intact up to Oct 13 and I know Chewie was posted looong before that. That bear cake was in the old thread too, but I think Chewbacca trumped him. You just have to dig in to find him (trust me it's worth it!)

You all are seriously posting some frightful cakes. Beachcakes I'm so glad you reposted that Born Free ship, I totally thought of that cake when I was pondering which gems got lost in the crash!!
