Angels Over the Rockies, Sweet Times in the Rockies Cake Competition 2/8/13 – Im revising my website and rediscovering some older works – Here it is, my entry in the Sweet Times in the Rockies Cake Competition. The theme was Aviation, and I chose the Blue Angels over the Rockies. This competition required entries to be made of cake. The planes are from cake and fondant, the pilot cockpits are poured Isomalt, and the com-trails are cotton candy. The Mountain is cake and fondant, airbrushed. I used blueprints of decreasing sizes, so the last plane is smaller (nearly 7’’ smaller) than the front plane, so as to give a forced perspective of depth. It was a major learning experience -doing a competition piece is very different than producing a yummy cake intended for eating! It was a great experience, and I plan to keep soaring higher!
