Step-By-Step Photos of Life-Sized Cake Sculpture

 


 

   

 

1. A modular stand was created for the specific sculpture. Layers of cake and buttercream icing were stacked, sculpted, and crumb coated. 
2. & 3. More layers of cake and icing were stacked and dowels and cake boards were added every few layers for support. 
4. A thin piece of tab board (thin cardboard) was attached to the main support plate to give the coattail dimensional realism.

5. More cake was added. The head and shoulder areas were sculpted. 
6. A full crumb coat of thinned buttercream icing was added quickly to preserve the freshness of the cake. 
7. The face was created from flesh-toned buttercream icing. The likeness was captured freehand by using photos as a reference. 
8. The face was piped, shaped with a palette knife, and smoothed with special art brushes.
