Homework Evidence Cake
OCCASION: Threadcakes Contest
NOTE: This entry cannot be possible without a plethora of links. Bear with me.
So at 4 PM on August 3, I found out about the Threadcakes cake contest via CakeWrecks. The contest deadline was midnight the same evening, and, being a lazy teenager in the summer, I decided to go for it. The contest was to interpret a Threadless t-shirt design into a cake. I decided (in my almost insane mind) that I would make TWO cakes, this being one of them. It's based off this tee. I covered the dog-shaped cake in black fondant and used dark blue and white fondant to replicate the shapes. For the x-ray lines, I used thin lines of light blue icing. These cakes were definitely a challenge: with less than ten hours to make two cakes, get ingredients, and feed myself like a healthy person, I had to work fast. Luckily, I had a few friends over for moral support/photography--the entire cake process had to be photographed for authenticity. This was a really fun experimental cake!
