The Most Awesome Cake Ever by Heidilu22 The Most Awesome Cake Ever by Heidilu22
yeah... for the competition... ask questions if you have them ill be happy to answer all that are posed!

-All flowers made by hand
-All scroll work done free hand (no template used)
-All flowers (i would guess btwn 500-600ea) placed on in groups of 5 or less
-Inspired by a set of curtains in the Pastry Studio's office room
-Theme of the competition is "5 to Grow on" so i did 5 tiers, and 5 petaled flowers. I also wanted it to look like the flowers were "growing" out from under each cake layer so it looks like the flowers are titling the cake.
-Cake stands 3ft 6in

Wow. If this was a competition entry I sure how you won! This is amazing! So, so beautiful and detailed. It also looks as if its defying laws of physics by managing to stay up.

It looks like something out of Wonderland.

about 2 months to make all the flowers on my own time after work. i wasnt able to work on it straight through so it's kind of hard to estimate. but yeah about 2 months?

I noticed this question by others but no answer as yet - maybe I didn't look hard enough - but how are these cakes supported? (is there a stand in the middle and a hidden tray for each layer?

I don't really know how she did it, of course, but I think she used dowel rods to support them, and naturally cakeboards or cake drums as well.

Beautifully done, a real inspiration for future baking :heart:

Fabulous. I love the design and the craziness of it. I can't even imagine how you got it to stay like that. I especially love all the delicate sugar flowers at the very bottom of the cake. They really seem to have a force that is lifting up the entire cake. Oooh, this is so awesome.

How did you layer the cake? I mean, what's between those layers, is there hidden cake under the flowers? It looks crazily impossible, like the cake should collapse right here and now. :clap:
