Creative Cakes You Wouldn’t Want to Eat
Some of us eat with our eyes as well as our mouths, so for us, food presentation is as important, if not more so, than the taste. These creative cakes are perfect examples – we can’t taste them (unfortunately), but most of them look as delicious as can be.
Most of these cakes owe their artistic magic to fondant, a controversial cake decoration ingredient that is delicious to some and foul to others. Fondant can be made in various colors and consistencies, so it is the perfect foundation for incredible sculpted cakes like these.
You can roll it out and cut it, imprint designs, create dazzling color effects and form it into just about any shape. Rolled fondant is the flexible, easy-to-shape icing that lets you do it all: create easy heart or flower cut-outs and simple hand-shaped ball or ruffle borders. Impress your guests with fun figures like clowns and dolls or spectacular floral bouquets and embossed accents. You’ll also find easy poured fondant recipes that cover cakes with a smooth, shiny finish.
