Incredible turtle and elephant cake
Yep, that’s a cake. Go ahead, look again.
The best part is, the introduction says “Just your basic iced and marzipanned fruit cake to begin – made in a wide oval bowl. The head and front flippers are shaped from fruit cake and covered with marzipan. Basic food colours applied.”
Oh yes, oh so basic. Don’t they sound rather nonchalant about it? ha The rest is written just as straight forward with fabulous pictures next to words like “Wire frames and dowels to support the elephants, to be moulded in marzipan.”
The rest of the pictures are quite amazing, too, with close-ups of the elephants and some step-by-step shots. Awesome. I definitely thought it was a sculpture when I first saw it and not something completely edible.
