I spent the entire day at work creating these fairly ugly cakes. It was a little depressing to slave over something I didn’t design and didn’t particularly like.
The worst (best?) part is, they’re not even real. It’s just styrofoam rounds covered with fondant and buttercream. They were for a photo shoot, and the client wanted them to look exactly like this picture:
We thought styrofoam would be easier and cheaper (the quote for real cakes on such short notice would have been astronomical) but in the end it was a huge pain cutting it to size, and it was more expensive than we thought it would be, so we probably ate the cost on this one. Live and learn.
