Steampunk Owl Cake by ArteDiAmore Steampunk Owl Cake by ArteDiAmore
This is my entry for the 2011 threadcakes.com competition. The cakes are based on t-shirt designs, and I chose the design "Mechanic-Owl King." The cake and all decorations are hand-sculpted. My entry, along with many more photos and a description of how I created the cake can be seen here... [link]

I'm always amazed of what amazing cake decorators can create just out of cake and other edible materials.


It looks amazing. Good work.

This is really lovely. Did it take a long time to make? And did it get eaten in the end+ It seems too good to eat.

Thank you! It took around 6 hours to decorate. I didn't have much time or it would have taken longer. Yes it did get eaten and it was yummy!

If that was me, I would have had such a hard time putting a knife to the little guy. But I'm glad it was delish!

This is fantastic!! No way i could bring myself to eat this!! It'd be like someone using Mona Lisa as a napkin...much too horrible to contemplate! Keep up the amazing work.

This is such an incredible masterpiece - I adore it! :love: SO much detail and the symmetry of patterning/feathers is outstanding. How you've layered it up must have taken an absolute age, but it really adds a distinctive classy quality to the owl. Fabulous work :D

This is awesome. I first found out about threadcakes through the cakewrecks blog's Sunday Sweets posts. This certainly looks like it would deserve mention as a sweet!
