Hi just found a new cake site through a german forum. This cake has me stumped ( oh well a lot of them do, but never mind) How did they pull this one off? While I'm waiting for your answers, I'm busy looking for my chin, it fell off when I opened this page.

A lot of dowels!!!!

Sorry, that's just a guess, not an answer!

It is amazing, though, isn't it?!?!?!



Anyone know?

You can build a skeleton in the middle from pvc pipe or copper. Replace some cake with rice krispies or modeling chocolate. you can probably do it all in cake you just need to have the inner structure sturdy.

Check this link and then click on the pictures, it opens her galleries.

She is an amazing cake decorator...I found her website when I was doing my cocoa paintings.

I think she is Russian, but no matter what she has heard of American Decorators, she has links to Mike's Amazing Cakes ( ace of cakes guy) Colette, and a few others! lol

I Know, I'm browsing her site. I would so love to pm her to tell her how amazing I think she is, but I don't know how or whether she would understand me at all. Still looking for my chin by the way.

Wow, awesome cake !!! I'm not too terribly experienced yet, but I would imagine you'd have to make that center part of the sewing machine out of something lighter than cake so it wouldn't cave.

Would love to know how this is done if anyone here has done something like this (and SURELY one of you pro's have done it !!!)

Maybe the machine is without cake and just gumpaste???? As a cake is below it, it is just a decoration, so only fondant/gumpaste with dowls inside could work....

Her cakes are amazing and due to the german forum, I learned that lots of russians do fantasic cake decorations.

Yes but wouldn't even gumpaste that size be extremely heavy? Rice crispy, don't know whether they have that there. Been checking out the other cakes as well, there are a couple, where I wouldn't even know where to start! Just wildly pressing the butoons on my computer and starting to feel like a complete cake decorating novice. My husband is starting to try building me up. Syas I've been improving soo much, in a couple of months... I'm goin yeah right

I'm sure that she would love to hear that she has a fan base in USA and in CAKE CENTRAL particularly....


[email protected]

That is her email, and I'm sure that if she can't read/understand your email...she will find someone to translate it for her...most Europeans study English as a second language..

Who knows...It couldn't hurt to tell her how beautiful her cakes are!! Compliments and KUDOS are always appreciated...no matter WHAT language they come in..lol

It most likely has central skeleton. Imagine the shape of the sewing machine made from pvc pipe. Just like on Cartoon Cakes for Popeye they used internal structure.

Would be easier after knowing what kind of cake she uses. If the base is similar to rich fruit cake, there should be no problem with the weight. Maybe you should ask some of the members at the german forum, if they would be willing to contact her icon_wink.gif

Uschi: your cakes have improved so much since I know you - no reason to feel like a novice Image

I'm wondering if only part of it is actual cake and part is styrofoam or something!! Then you definitely wouldn't have a weight issue.

I just sent an e-mail to her([email protected]) We'll see if she's able to respond. No harm is trying and she'd be a wonderful addition to the CakeCentral family.

My jaw dropped when I saw this...becasue it's so beautiful and because this was my idea for my next cake!!! (I'm not saying she took my idea) what a coincidence!!!! Her work is probably of the best I have ever seen. I love seeing such neat, precise detailing.

Mike's Amazing....look out!!
