That Takes the Cake

by on February 28, 2009 · 7 comments

Today’s recipe will be late, but I have an excuse. Todd, Fuzz & I spent the morning at the Crockett Center – host to King of Combat Cage Match Wrestling, The Saxet Gun Show and That Takes the Cake one of Austin’s best cake decorating & sugar art shows. Can you guess which event we attended? If you guessed Cage Match, think again.

We spent the morning at the cake show, where I pitched my idea of a cake carrier with a pull out stem that turns into a stand. Okay, not really. The cake stand and carrier isn’t worthy of any of these amazing cakes and the idea of transporting them anywhere – even across the room, gives me shivers.

Wow..these are beautiful. I really like your idea about the cake stand but I am with you on not wanting to transport any of these cakes.
Wish I had a piece of some of those cakes to sample.

Those are amazing–I do wonder what some of them taste like though, since they seem to have such a large amount of fondant.
