My anti gravity Sloth cake won gold and first place this weekend just gone at Cake International in the Decorative Exhibit category at the NEC. Im so proud beyond belief and have had so many lovely comments, both in person and online.
The cake gives the appearance of being an anti gravity cake to make the sloth look like its hanging off the tree but it had lots of internal support with its structure being built from copper piping, thread rods, wood nuts and bolts.

The cake has been set in a swamp scene to make it more realistic and features edible frog spawn made from isomalt, tadpoles sculpted from flowerpaste and a hovering dragon fly which brings live motion to the scene, especially with the gelatin splash and piping gel water.
The tree has lots of edible rice paper leaves and is adorned with edible bugs and moss/fungi made using chilli flakes and various herbs

then there’s that fur! oh the fur they say :)
