Havn't done one of these in awhile.
Sculpted cakes are probably my favourite cakes to do. The fact that they turn out not looking like cake seem to amuse everyone; including myself! Hehe I always start off with a sketch and then scrape and dig away till it begins to look right.
This was one of the rare "2 day notice cakes" that I decide to take on as a challenge.
It started as just your regular 'corporate' cake; I decided "Hey~ Why not?"
A couple hours later, from 20 servings it became 30...and then 50...we began revising the design and having more and more ideas; a day later, I'm stuck with this exciting project I cant wait to work on! Funny how things are sometimes.Airbrushed and sculpted pieces are so rare! Haha i suppose people are turned off by its price tag everytime i propose a design quote. >.< Has anyone picked up where this cake was headed?
It was designed for a well loved leading engineer at Weatherford Malaysia. I suppose they deal with lots of drilling and mining; hence the idea of an edible drillers hat. I thought it would be cool to have a little attached sticker on the parcel addressed to him. Of course I had to tear it on purpose and stick it together again just for an extra douse of Su's charm. *giggle*
