So here are the next two segments I completed on The Cake Show. I’ll be honest….these are slightly embarrassing! It’s not my best work… but who cares, it was still fun!
The second segment was decorating a quarter sheet cake.
I have a secret. I hate traditional sheet cakes. Since they are usually created to feed the masses, I find them aesthetically boring, short and too simple. So I wasn’t psyched to make this one….too bad I took this challenge quite literally! I didn’t realize I could have made the quarter sheet cake into something else like the other contestants! Rookie mistake.
But I still like the way my buttercream igloo and handsculpted penquins turned out.
The last segment was the cupcake challenge. Again, I tried to make as much stuff in 15 minutes as I could without using pre-made decor.
I made some New Years Eve themed cupcakes but the colors didn’t really pop on screen. Here’s a slightly better pic.
Here’s a photo of all three cakes. Overall….I thought I did an Ok job. Not too shabby since I was a last minute add!!! : )
Overall the winner was Benny from City Cakes – congrats Benny!
