Sculpting a Camera Out of Cake :)

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake, Fondant, Sugarpaste, various cutting, embossing and crafting tools. What are you most proud of? I was told by the mother of the bride as well as the bride herself that guests thought the cameras were real until they were told otherwise or until they got right up close to them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The tools are essential to detailing the fondant. Chilling the cake as you go through the steps is critical as well.

What you will need

  • Cake
  • Fondant
  • Sugarpaste
  • various cutting
  • embossing and crafting tools.

Q&A with HeavenlyCakes

lluvia asked:
wow love it, is this from a craftsy class?
HeavenlyCakes answered:
No. I just had a request from a Bride to sculpt a groom's cake into the shapes of the bride and groom's cameras. She provided pics of the details of their cameras and their special lenses. Then I just free-handed the sculpting and cut out the details by eyeing them. No patterns. But I did make a blog to guide others with the process since I could not find anything online about how to sculpt a camera cake.
