Its basically using a turntable like a potters wheel, using the same techniques you would with clay - from memory I don't think there is cake under that - its just a blob of ??  buttercream/cream

Well, not certain - doesn't mean YOU couldn't do it on a cake - but I think this video is more to show what 'might' be possible - the bit where it goes into hemisphere is where I think you see it isn't really cake

 

This might be good for people who DO have pottery experience but for somebody just starting out with cakes I'd say there were heaps easier ways to do it - this is NOT as easy as it looks..... speaking from somebody who has had a crack at pottery on a wheel  LOL

They actually start with frozen cream.  I don't think there's cake anywhere near it.

Finally found it - - it's called quenary and there are some amazing videos on youtube.

I love the way he uses the spoon on the sides of the cake!! Saw this video a couple of months ago but could not remember where to find it again.  I also think he is using some kind of cream or bettercreme.  Thanks for posting!/Mary

I just wish I could make a turntable spin that fast and evenly...

Seems to me you could get an old turntable and turn it into something similar...

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

Saw that video some time ago...amazing!

 

Let me be a witness right now....this CANNOT BE DONE with a Wilton turntable and butterceam! I found hardened blobs of icing under my top cabinets, between the mini-blind slats & on top of my fridge for weeks after I tried it! Thought my poor dog had a tumor there for a minute, but he finally licked it all off.icon_biggrin.gif

In my opinion, cake should be at the base of the Food Pyramid.

What makes you think there is no cake under the icing? I think there could be like a 6" x 2" round with a bucket load of icing on the top and sides, which is them removed strategically using this technique.

 

One of my turntables can spin this fast, but I think I'd need a third hand to spin it while trying to co-ordinate all the other stuff, LOL!

Life's too short to make cake pops.

I wish I could work a cake like the video shows!!! Speaking of turntables in the beginning, I bought the Wilton turntable but found it to be very cheap.  I went into Big Lots and found a glass turntable that is ten times sturdier than the Wilton one. I never use the Wilton turn table any more. The new one I bought out of glass only costs me 8 dollars. If Istill had the receipt for the Wilton one I bought at Micheal's I would have taken it back.  It never gets used because it is wobbly and can not handle the weight of a regular 10 inch two layer cake with all the icing!! Some of the Wilton products I am very disappointed with.

Me too, Remnant! (wish I could work a cake like that AND about the Wilton disappointment)

 

Although lightyears away from proficiency still, I caught the decorating bug in Sep 2009. I rushed out to buy all the Wilton supplies & pans I thought I would need for my new hobby, thinking they were top-of-the-line products...they are now in boxes waiting for me to sell at a garage sale.

 

I have since replaced most of my tools and pans with the good stuff :) although I still get some good use from a few of the Wilton gadgets.

 

I still use the cheapo turntable though because the last few times I tried to order a good one online, 2 different sites were out of stockicon_sad.gif and I'm not lucky enough to find one locally.
