What is Steampunk?

Steampunk is one of those things that’s hard to describe. With its roots in science fiction & the industrialized 19th century, this aesthetic emphasizes a balance between form and function, blurring the line between tools and decoration. If you haven’t heard of it before, the best way to explain it is to repeat the old adage: “you’ll know it when you see it.”

 

And there’s plenty of steampunk to see right here on Craftsy in the form of topsy-turvy cake! In fact, in the online Craftsy class, Topsy-Turvy Cake Construction, instructor Richard Ruskell features a steampunk cake. Perhaps that has been the inspiration for all the jaw-dropping and fun steampunk cakes we’ve seen being made and posted by members of our Craftsy community!

Steampunk Steampunk Wedding Cake Steampunk Cake
Like we said, you know steampunk when you see it; and this is one very Victorian steampunk cake by Craftsy user Chef Sam.
What do you get when two steampunks fall in love? A steampunk wedding! And what do you get with a steampunk wedding? A steampunk wedding cake, of course. Check out this example from Craftsy member frostynay.
You’ll be forgiven if you have a hard time believing this topsy-turvy cake by Craftsy crafter MoniqueCakes NY is actually a cake. But it is, and when it comes to topsy-turvy steampunk cakes, this one takes the…well, you know!

 

And it’s not only on Craftsy where we’re seeing steampunk cakes, just check out all the pins on Pinterest!
