Hi :)

.....sorry for a late reply. I'm in the middle of a cake for my Daughter.

I haven't got a tutorial, but I could try and explain how I did it if that will help?

I'm always so impressed by stuff like this - out of curiosity - how is it?

The only kind of art I've really immersed myself in are all timeless things like painting, music, drawing, digital, vector, writing, etc.

What's it like to make "In the now" Art? And by that I mean, edible art - Art that doesn't last forever, so to say. Is it sad to eat your creations? 

Or is there a sense of joy, like firing off a display of fireworks and enjoying their momentary beauty before they burn out?

Just so interesting (I always wanted to do stuff like this, and have done it on a small scale level - but I'm so awful in the kitchen! x'DDD) - don't mind my babbling though, great gallery. :'3

Thankyou for your comment :)

...and cake making wasn't my first choice of art to specialise in. I

was told at 15 by an uncle, that a cake I made at the time was terrible!

I didn't even think about doing another one until my daughters 2nd Birthday when I

was 19. I found it extremely difficult, and was greatful that my daughter was too young

to comment.

I made the odd cake now and again, and bought books to learn from.

 I went through many cakes like these Progression by ginas-cakes to get to the stage I'm at now.


The main motivating factor has been to see the look on my kids and family's face when they see their

cake. The more cakes I've done, the better I feel the next one has to be to get the same or better reaction. :)


If you ever wanted to try cake decorating, I highly recommend books by Debbie Brown. Her designs are really

challenging, but she explains the process really well. You'll have to let me know if you do! :aww:

Not a problem. :'3

That's so neat! I'm not sure how far I'll delve into it cause I have a lot on my plate (no pun intended!) but I will definitely look up this Debbie Brown. >I Thank you again!
