Nature Reigns by cake-engineering Nature Reigns by cake-engineering
I made this cake for Threadcakes 2011. It is based off the design Nature Reigns. It is a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. I hand carved the skull. The crown is gumpaste with sugar gems. The eggs, bird, and leaves are all gumpaste. It took around 35 hours to complete. I'm pleased with the result and I had a lot of fun making it.

Here is the link to my entry and how I made this cake:

The sculpting is superb! The skull would look better with rough texture rather than a smooth and somewhat glossy look, but the marbling quite compensated the sheen, and is a nice overall touch.
I like the other elements, the only thing I'll add is that the underside of the flower needs more shading. Nevertheless the leaves and crown are fantastic! Maybe the cake board needs a little oomph, maybe texture it a little or add some soil-like edibles. And the bee is a bit glossy, would have look better in matte and/or a little texture.
Overall, its a fantastic piece of cake artwork and I would definitely order one ^__^
