Post your WORST cake!! (cpntinued since after the crash) - Page 12

post #166 of 422
Oh how misery loves company.
We call this cake the ugly cake. This cake made me completely change my policies on using black buttercream! I wish you could see how the swirl designs were supposed to look. I was HYSTERICAL trying to make this cake. It was on of the first we sold from the shop. My mother was there and shoved $60 in my hand as I was leaving so that I could stop by the grocery store to buy more red roses to hide the shame. There ended up being about 3X the amount of roses than the client asked for.

BTW...They LOVED it! I just made their 1 year anniversary cake that matched the second tier.

This is probably my first ever attempt at a "3-d" cake. I made it 8 years ago. It was for my fiance who opened a computer business 2 weeks before his birthday. It used a DH mix, canned icing and those tubes of colored gel. The keys and the hearts on the screen are Valentine SweetTarts. I had never even heard of dowels but somehow I had the monitor standing until my future MIL decided she should try to move it (I don't remember why) and broke it in half. I ended up wrapping the monitor in foil covered cardboard and proped it up as much as I could.

I think I've come a LOOOOONG way since then.

I love Chewie and the Russian! icon_lol.gif Too funny! Unfortunately I don't have any cakes worthy of this thread (or is that fortunate? icon_lol.gif )

Keep 'em coming! thumbs_up.gif

Okay - I've got one. And since I've been doing this a very short time I'm sure I will have more!!!! This is my first ever attempt at making a fondant figure - I'm still not sure what to do about the face!!! I also tried to do topsy turvy, but in the middle of it realized I skipped some crucial steps!!

Awesome thread! But you should know that there are some of us out here who wish we could get our stuff to be as good as some of your "reject" cakes!!! LOL.

Found 2 more that were made about 6 years ago. Lizzie Maguire was for my daughter and for my son - Nemo (who, if you look closely you will see, is missing his lucky fin!) These were before I even had cake tools. I decorated them with an antique icing gun which held approximately 3 tablespoons of icing at a time. And, of course, gel colors - 'cause what's more appetizing on a cake than black, runny ooze, right?

yeah, that computer one while not excellent in technique it does have a great idea and an excellent use of materials. I like it just because its unique.
I live in Japan, so unless I order it 45 days ahead of time what I can get here is what I get to use, so this cake to me is a great show of use what you got! I love the keyboard.

Awww... thank you, KawaiiCakeCook.

I look back on my first cake attempts and try to console myself that if I can say nothing else about them, at least I can say they were made with love.

I'm totally cool with you laughing....my husband did, too! Said they looked like those scary kids from movies like The Ring.

My son is awesome, though. He's only five - he said they were beautiful. What he doesn't know icon_smile.gif makes me feel better!!!!

Plus, I think my baby and my leprechaun turned out WAY better. Now if I can only figure out how to do the face of a NON sleeping figure!!!!
