Cakes styles you never get tired of seeing - Page 2

post #16 of 31

My favorites are whimsical cakes and cakes that look like food, like a cheeseburger .  I love it when people's eyes pop open and say, "Is that really a cake?!"

I agree with every single one of you, plus I just love making buttercream roses, and lace cakes. Triple dittos on the baby rump and prego belly cakes being creepy and horrible! (Anyone hungry for human flesh? Would you like the breast or the fetus? GAG!!!)

Tha'ts how I feel too. honestly the baby sleeping, the pregnant belly and/or foot cakes, the baby's bum-whatever they are...they creep me out. It's just too strange IMO.  Also I just do not see the appeal in them. do people actually ask for these cakes or is that what cake makers are offering as options? Either way, I can do without seeing them.

 

I love the very modern, simple and 'clean' designed cakes ('clean' meaning less is more and art/color  rules are applied!), sugar flowers...like Faye Cahill or similar designers. I still love damask even though that may be played out by now.

 

Lace cakes, drapes done in a modern way. Cakes that remind me of a wedding dress or gorgeous fabric like a lot of the Canadian cake designers seem to be doing right now...love that style/look too.

I think I can agree with the idea that a cake shaped like Human anatomy (or any portion thereof, including that one rather notorious one that Lorena Bobbitt would probably love) is in rather poor taste. (Then again, I don't especially like Easter candy in the shape of small, cute, animals, either.)

 

"Annabakescakes": you agree with all of us? Even my own inclination to just do simple, "family-style" in-pan sheet cakes? I'm flattered. (And I'm not being sarcastic. Not at all. I'm also hoping that for this year's Leland Awards cake, I'll have the time and energy to de-pan the thing, finish the blank areas in "the family pattern" [instead of just troweled out like rustic stucco], and maybe, maybe  even pipe a border around it.)

For my MIL birthday last year, I served a yellow cake with chocolate icing on a Styrofoam plate! And for my own cake, a couple weeks later, my husband made me one that was rough iced, and the year before last, for my birthday, we had an angel food cake my grandma made, with boiled icing, that my kids iced it with it! Oh, and my husband's birthday we made a coffee flavored cake with creamy cinnamon vanilla icing, and smeared it on, all messily. We enjoy these cakes very much, and it is nice to not have to cut through fondant and pull wires and straws and cardboard off or out of them! We leave our brownies in the pan, but I do take my cakes out. ;-)

Ug! And I hate the Lorena Bobbitt Special, or the female alternative...I won't touch those with a ten foot pole, either decorating, or eating!

Ha! I had to google her because I had no idea who she was. Um, yeah...I wouldn't make anything that is related to what she did.

I suddenly find myself thinking of the night Patrick Stewart hosted Saturday Night Live. And did a sketch in which he portrayed a baker with somewhat odd tastes.

I'm 24 :) I was either 5 or 6 around the time that happened. I didn't look at the exact dates of when it happened.

I guess you parents probably turned the news off, and spoke in code, still, lol! It was 1993 was 12 or 13, then, and it was all my step-father could think about!

 

Actually, that made you 3 or 4, probably too young to get it!
