Is this cheating or not - Pt.2 - Page 2

post #16 of 19
I agree! Who made the "all edible" rule? A plastic keepsake/ toy is a winner! thumbs_up.gif I bake a great cake, can decorate fairly well, but sculpt figures---- no way!

Anything made from gumpaste is technically edible, but who would want to? We spend hours and hours and tons of money learning how to make a flower that looks exactly like a flower. A flower which could be purchased for under $5. At the wedding site, the flowers are picked off by a caterer and trashed. Most of the guests had no idea if the flowers were real or gumpaste. Most of them don't care. Don't get me wrong - the cakes created by Ron Ben-Israel are totally amazing. But in the real world, not many people care. So - to each his own and let us not judge one another.
Oh the time I have wasted trying to come up with pithy signature lines!

I enjoy making my own, but would not think twice about purchasing plastic toys if I'm running out of time (I have 2 young babies so my caking time is limited). With that being said, "I" still think it's cheating because I'm just a cake snob that way. icon_biggrin.gif The kids, however, couldn't care less. They seem to enjoy the plastic toys more, and the parents seem to like the handmade figures since they can display it as a keepsake.

I don't think it's cheating at all. When I was a kid, I loved getting plastic figures or toys on my cakes. The more toys the better hehe!!

I remember having a "zoo cake" with plastic animals for my birthday. I was more excited about the animals than the cake!
