Seconded...you should make one of the Dalek's distant cousin, R2-D2.
pft, food = art
except instead of keeping it around, you digest it and poop it out later, praying you can make it look that good again another time
people who garneje (i think that's how it' spelt) extremely well make a lot of money for what they do

I'm a pastry arts student, and I think those are super-awesome!
did you make your own fondant or buy pre-made stuff?
thanks so much.
it's the homemade marshmallow kind. i flavored the top one with some mexican vanilla extract..it was my first fondant project. since then i've been experimenting with almond extract and coconut flavoring.
ps... that premade wilton stuff is supposedly gross, but i've never used it.

i haven't used the wilton stuff (only the stuff they get in at school), but yeah... it's pretty gross. not really meant to be eaten (at least not in large amounts).
Wow, these are awesome. The chili's one is my fave! You should consider doing this professionally.
Wow. How did you do the rainbow?
That rainbow cake looks sooo good.
All that food coloring was giving me eye cancer just looking at it.
Lady, these are actual art.
I wish I lived near you! I'd pay you to bake me pretty delicious things! OM NOM NOM NOM!
Baking IS art!
I used to work in a bakery for 2 years and I had so much fun.
I made a vagina outta fondant for this one woman, she was awesome.
How did you get that rainbow effect inside the cake? I must know!
wow! these are so great! i love the rainbow cake!
You should submit these to cake wrecks and get on as one of the examples of good ones.
i think cake wrecks is supposed to have professional cakes only.
plus the good ones on there are waaaaay better than mine.
This has totally inspired me to make a really elaborate cake for my boyfriend's next birthday. And maybe even for mine, since it's much closer!
I love your dalek cake!!!! Awesome

I nearly died when I saw the Dalek! So cool!
You do a great job with the fondant. I should get around to playing with that.
that first cake was the single greatest thing i have ever seen. you must really like your boss! unless it was laced with poison. it wasn't laced with poison was it?
i liked my boss. he really turned our store around, and i was sad to see him go. it wasn't laced with poison, but it was an excuse to make a silly rainbow cake.
You are so cool!
I really wish I had a Dalek cake now.

You inspired me to play with fondant, so I went out to the store and bought the stuff I need... I'm vegan though, so I had to find a vegan recipe that I hope works!
apparently the ready made wilton stuff is vegan if your homemade kind proves to be too wonky. good luck!!!
wow the cakes are all really awesome and nicely crafted! check out my food blog here http://nomnivore.blogspot.com/
p.s. it was rly cool to see you at work, take care and make moar cakes!
HOLY NICE CAKES. Especially the Dalek.
