Hi Everyone, After days going through topics on papercut, i finally found some time to start a project for my almost 10 year old daughter. She asked me for a fox sculpted cake surrounded by edible fall leaves for her birthday… So here are some wip shots, so far all is going smoothly well.
Wiring my wafer paper leaves cutted on my unit
After wiring them all, time to airbrush !
This part was never ending - veining leaves with edible colours
After all this process, it’s time to give them shape and assembling. Here you have an overview at different stages (from scratch to almost shaped).
Assembled - Almost finished still need to cover the wires with chocolate
Live time lapse result:
Working on the structure. Yesterday, spend the day with Glowforge unit testing on paper different sizes of the head and body before cutting the wood.
Putting it all toghether
Almost there… time to stop for today!
Cutting my rice krispies
Ganaching with dark belgian chocolate
After 3 full days of work here is the Glowfox Cake!
Absolutely wonderful. Kudos! She’s a lucky girl.
I’ve spent many an hour hunched over cake decorations for the kiddos. Time well spent.
Indeed, the longest for me was 10 hours -_-
Beautiful work. She will long remember your gift.
They are amazing, such patience on your part to achieve gorgeous realism. Me, I’d make my kids eat real leaves.
As an artist myself… Those are fantastic. Really really good.
It’s hard to believe these aren’t real! Congratulations on achieving perfection—I’d heard it was impossible.
Absolutely gorgeous! I hope we can see the final picture on the fox cake as well!
Incredible! Such dedication!
Wow, those are beautiful! I second the request for a finished photo!
Can’t praise these enough! I guess there is edible paper available, who knew? You’ve got some mad airbrushing skills!
Beautiful! Love fall colors, and these are stunning!
Please post pictures of the finished cake.
Gorgeous!! Almost a shame to eat them & destroy such amazing work… and there can’t be any way they taste as good as they look, even if they do taste good! Lucky daughter!
absolutely amazing. Haha makes me jealous
These are great! How did you keep them from blowing around in the laser? I know of the Seklema mat and other methods for paper, but wafer paper is SO delicate, I can’t imagine unsticking it from something without it tearing. Awesome paint job by the way!
Thank you but it doesn’t at all… i would say Its just an optical illusion.
