This guy decided to make his first ever 3D cake for his Girlfriend’s birthday
He realised instantly that he needed a bigger bowl
Hour or 2 of baking later.
He was told at the cake shop he would need reinforcement, thanks £1 plumbers pipe!
The first 3 cakes go on the pipe
Thought he’d give shaping a go at this point for some reason.
Added plastic doweling to add more stability
Chopped up a cake base, and glue gunned it too the plumbers pipe from above to avoid the cake
Shaping (I can explain the drill)
Butter icing and jam holding holds him pretty steady
Fuck! What a mess!
A bit more shaping and filling in some gaps
A few photos missing of him rocking in the corner crying
He dropped the ready roll on his head and it fell to pieces like my his dreams.
But he slowly and clumsily put him together again and added details
Starting to bring out character and hide my mistakes.
And then he could see!
Here’s his nose, which was just a huge block of ready roll
Using some baby blue food colouring and painting him in
His surprised look probably comes from the large pole up his ass
Ta da! Olaf’s arms were made of rolled paper dipped in chocolate for some reason that was his best idea
Edible glitter added to finish off
