    Jun 24, 2012, 1:15 AM - The Walking Dead Birthday Cake - Characters sculpted in sugar #1

    Hi everyone,

    Every year for my husband's birthday (Gorgot3000 on this forum, the Dark Helmet dude lol), I make him a special cake. And this year I decided to bring the challenge up a notch (yeah right)! I wanted to make everything out of sugar and cake, everything edible. So all I used was Cake, Sugar paste, fondant and food coloring.

    I must say that I am no cake artist, it's the third cake I do with fondant and gumpaste. I have a bit of sculpting background and I used to be a florist. and to tell you the truth, gumpaste scupture is everything but easy!

    I wanted to make a whole action scene with zombies and everything... with 2 weeks and a whole lot of stress, I came up with this... Im pretty proud of it

    I am sure, that walking dead fans will enjoy this as much as my husband!

    Enough talking... pictures worth a thousand words!

    The big scenery


    Rick Grimes


    Daryl


    Carl


    Zoooommmbiiiess!


    And the happy husband:

    That looks amazing!! That must have been so much fun to eat, I can just imagine everyone fighting over who gets to eat each figure. How fun is that? It really does look great.

    We didn't eat the figures, since the sugar is set they can be kept indefinitely. They will be safe and sound in my husband's glass showcase room.

    Looks like the cake went viral on the net ... articles are starting to show on the internet:

    Haha, and Carl's out in the middle of nowhere, getting himself in danger. Typical Carl.

    Anyway, fantastic job!

    I love the cross bow. This cake just rocks. I wouldn't want to eat it...but it's cake. Such a hard choice.

    Nov 18, 2012, 5:27 PM - The Walking Dead Birthday Cake Part 2 - Hand sculpted sugar (updated 11-18-2012) #24

    Hi everyone.

    After the overwhelming and kinda unexpected positive outcome from the first cake, I decided to start a mini cake business for the fun of it. I got the request this weekend to do another The Walking Dead cake from a customer, so we decided to do a part 2 with Michonne and her zombie slave. My husband, Gorgot3000, helped me and sculpted sugar for the first time, the results are quite impressive. Enough said! pictures !
