3D Novelty Cakes

There once was a time when cake making was simple and straight forward…well not anymore! The rise in popularity for 3D Novelty Cakes has been nothing short of astonishing.

Television programs like Cake Boss have helped drive the interest in having a three dimensional cake created for almost any celebration you can imagine.

Other 3D cake makers have turned cake making into nothing short of art form, its more like sculpture really and competitions like the one run by the T-Shirt company Threadless takes it to a whole new level.

Here at Ickletweats I am getting asked more often now to design and make these great cake creations and have had a chance to make some really cool ”likeness 3D cakes’.

Reality 3D Novelty Cakes

Imagine a typical family scenario. Your husband or boyfriend is sitting watching TV. In his dressing gown, sat on his favourite chair, wearing his ‘Homer Simpson’ slippers and playing FIFA on his Xbox.  The chair is sat on a carpet that covers a laminate wooden floor and he is really comfortable nestled against his best cushions.

How about if I create exactly that scene in a 3D cake? Well that’s what I did and the photos are here for you to see. Take a look at the comparison with the real thing, I was supplied the photos and I used them to get as close as I could to the actual scene.

Judge for yourself if I did a good enough job!

 The entire birthday cake is edible right down to the ‘Homer’ slippers and everything you see was hand crafted and decorated. I named the cake ‘The Gamer’

three-dimensional-cake-manchesterTo ensure I could get this level of detail into the cake I needed photos showing the scene I was to copy. These were duly supplied and here is a selection so you can see how it matches up.

The image below shows the patterned rug and floor detail.


This next shot shows the gamer playing FIFA on his Xbox. Note the carpet and floor!


Here is an image showing the upholstery that I needed to copy along with the very important cushions which also needed to replicate the leaf detail.


Lastly the birthday boy himself along with favourite dressing gown.

So if you would like a ‘3D Reality Cake’ based on a scene or event that is dear to you let me know and we can see what is possible.

It's been a very busy summer "break" in the ickle tweats kitchen, I've got so many fabulous cakes to share with you. That will have to wait for a quieter day though, for now you can look at the fabulous gin and lemon cakes that are currently cooling ready to be turned into a gin masterpiece tomorrow (if all goes to plan...and if I don't eat them first 😂) ...

"Vintage Book"

A few weeks ago I was asked to make this beautiful book cake for a Christening. It's carved from a large carrot cake covered with sugar paste, topped with paper thin sugar paste pages. The inscription is hand painted and it's finished with a bookmark, presented on a decorated "leather bound" board. The page edges are all finished in edible gold paint.
