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