Sun or Microorganism/Virus?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello CC world!

This is my second post and I'm very new to 'making cakes'. I've made about 4 cakes that you could consider a little more advanced than box cake and slopped on store bought frosting.

 

My friends birthday was coming up last month so I wanted to make her a cake. Some of her most favorite things are astrology, suns, etc. So I made her a pisces cake (I am going to post in the decorating thread shortly) and this Sun. Well, I don't think I have to explain why this cake just didn't quite live up to my creative vision. And even though I made her a different cake (which this was supposed to be an element of) I did present this to her as a gag cake first.

 

I told her I was going for a sun but ended up with a virus... The slightly intoxicated crowd of my girlfriends belly rolled for about 5 minutes so it was still a hit, despite being a disaster. :)

 

It is orange cake with buttercream filling and a thin layer of orange marmalade in the middle. The peaks are royal frosting (my first time making royal frosting and a round cake). It's airbrushed and spray painted gold.


So here's to my virus! (No one got sick in the consumption of this cake and surprisingly the orange was refreshing and good!)

i adore this cake

 

it's under the sea goes celestial in a the-blob-that-ate-chicago way

 

srsly--forget your vision--it often can take a looong time to get the visions aligned with what gets produced

 

 

but this is tremendously awesome

 

and i haven't had one adult beverage...

 

go with the flow ;)

I think it's actually pollen: http://contemplativemammoth.wordpress.com/2011/10/21/no-pollen-grains-were-harmed-in-the-writing-of-this-dissertation/

Perhaps slightly more palatable.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I for one had to google Chihuli but you are right.  I keep waiting for it to evolve into a monster.

Ha! Thanks for the pollen picture. I sent it to my friend and got another good laugh out of her.  Sure to be a birthday cake she will never forget.

I love it!!!  It looks like something Leonardo da Vinci or another great artist would have done!!! LOL!! I think it is very artistic. Looks like something we would see in an art gallery!!! You did a terrific job!!! You have talent and it was not a fluke but an interesting piece of Art work plus it tasted good too!!! What more could one ask for!!! Great job.
