Working on a Building – 3D cake

This 3D cake was created as a replica of the new University of Toronto Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering building.

 

While the above time lapse video makes our hard work look so quick and easy, this particular cake took over 20 hours to make.

First we use photos of the building to scale down all of the features – walls, roof, windows…etc

Then we stack the cake, placing dowel support and cake boards every few layers for a stronger structure.

Each side gets panelled with fondant and mark where all of the brick and windows will go. Line by line, the details are all added.

20+ hours and 3 days later we have a building! This particular building cake was a 12″ cube.
