Does anyone know the name of the bakery who made this cake?

Cool idea, Doug! Now there's one gadget I don't have, so I hope someone tries it and reports!

Oprah does have her own personal chef, maybe he made the cake? Doug, can you still buy those juice extractors? I have an old fashioned plastic one that would probably work, but I will be on the lookout now for one of those. I would love to see a picture of that cake on it's own. It is lovely.

Those juice extractors can also be found in Wal-Mart and in some dollar stores.

I think I got my wooden juicer like that from Pampered Chef years ago. Don't know if they still have them.

I wonder if a scoop of cake was "removed" at even intervals on the cake underneath to get those perfect beautiful indentations from the fondant. Covering thickly with fondant is an idea, but when I first saw this cake a few months ago that's what came to mind before covering the cake with fondant. Anyone?

I would do a standard fondant thickness, then mark out where the dimples and 'buttons will go. I would then use a regular balling tool to make the general dimple then add in the radiating lines either with a scribing tool or flower-centre tool (large).

After placing the lines of the quilting in (I'd use a metal ruler for those I think), I'd lastly glue in the small buttons into the dimples.

Thats what I'd do...now I want to make one!! icon_smile.gif

Life's too short to make cake pops.

I LOVE this cake too! I may just have to make one. Mine will probably be a little smaller though.

Yeh, I really want to make one too. With a couple of tiers instead of one big one icon_biggrin.gif
Of course I match Wal-Mart's price on cake! :eyeroll:

Speaking of Oprah, I had a dream about her last night. She gave me 5k.
