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.

  1. I’ve made chocolate plastic and made roses out of them too- it’s so fun and delicious too!

  2. I bought your book a couple of months ago and I love it!! Modeling chocolate is easier to work with than fondant and tastes better, too.

  3. From dish pit to stardom! Well done! The illusion is amazing, I can’t believe my eyes lol! The roses are so much fun and thank you for the tutorial. You are such an inspiration!
