My “Chocolate Optical Illusion Cake” design is on the cover of the November chocolate edition of Cake Masters Magazine!
You can also scroll down to see some more photos of this cake that was decorated entirely in modeling chocolate.
I filmed the making of this cake, and the tutorial is available here >> Chocolate Optical Illusion Cake Video Tutorial. Here is the link to my video tutorial on how to make the whimsical modeling chocolate roses that are garnishing the top of the cake and you can also access my modeling chocolate recipes here.
If you are interested in reading the whole article, head on over to Cake Masters and check it out! In the interview, I tell the story of my worst cake disaster EVER and how I had to scrub a LOT of pots and pans before I was allowed to make my first wedding cake. Yep, I started out in the bakery industry as a grunt/dishwasher, emptying the grease trap, mopping the floors, and scrubbing the cake pans and Hobart attachments. It was about as un-glamorous as a pig cake in a puddle of chocolate!
By the way, the design that is wrapped around this cake is two-dimensional. It’s flat, thinly rolled modeling chocolate, cut and arranged just so to make an optical illusion. Did it fool your eyes? Make ya look twice? Because that’s what I was going for.
