NCACS Cake Room - Part 2

Want to see some more cakes from the National Capital Area Cake Show? How about another blue beauty?

This cake had crystals that hang off of the top tier. They are made from sugar, melted and hardened over floss to create the dramatic effect of glass.

The roses here are gumpaste flowers which are made entirely of sugar. Yup. Sugar. Any you can see some more examples of stringwork on the white tiers.

No matter what anyone says about fine crystal and diamonds, I am sticking to the theory that shoes are a girl’s best friend. Don’t you just want to slip this one on? And the rich texture of the bows is a really great way to add richness. And the buttons! Don’t get me started. I love buttons. Shiny buttons, on a cake? Too much!!

OK, I got a little worked up back there at the shoe cake. Should we take a break from cake-ogling and play a game? How about Scrabble? WAIT! This Scrabble board IS a cake and is covered with baking words. So fun!

 Here are two last cakes that I really enjoyed looking at this year. The first is a GIANT steampunk-esque bride and groom. I adore the industrial feel.

 This cake from the “Under the Sea” category takes us 20,000 leagues deeper and is reminiscent of a Jules Verne metallic all its own. The squid tentacle is somehow both mesmerizing and creepy. Surely its intended effect.

So, as you can see, the cake room this year was top notch!  I hope you enjoyed this quick tour through the room with me. See you next year at NCACS!
