This week, we're featuring some amazing cakes from That Takes The Cake, a show that took place in Austin last month. The theme of the show was Sci-Fi and Fantasy but we'll be showing you those cakes next week. For now, I thought we'd bring you some slightly more traditional beauties. All of the pictures are from Devrah's Flickr page (thanks Devrah!) but sadly, we don't know who any of the bakers are except for the first one. Please let us know if the cake is yours and we'll give you proper credit.
Let's start with this chocolate masterpiece:
Here's a close-up
This cake was made by Tammy Luckey who obviously rocks. And the stringwork? It was done off-site and driven to the show. Crazy awesome.
And this one is just adorable:
(Update: This amazing autumn cake was made by Carley King. You rock!)
If you take a close look at this, it looks like crewel embroidery. Totally unique:
And I think this is my favorite:
I think the shape on this one is really cool:
And finally, here's a preview of next week's Sweets:
Awww Yeeahh! See you next week!
Update: Apparently, today is Pie Day or something. It's the day when the people of Finland come together to celebrate the liberation of Flurnburg by hurling pies at one another and singing traditional fish-slapping songs. "Shlip, shlap. Shlip and shlap all day..." It really is majestic.
