    She’s obviously never had campylobacter or salmonella.

    Whenever I see these sculptural cakes I really wonder if they taste good.    All that fondant and extraneous material doesn’t seem all that appetizing.  The best tasting cakes I have ever eaten have been plain and simple.  (I really can’t imagine ever wanting to eat one of those sculpted cakes they now base TV shows around.)  

    Anyone have any experience with these ?  Any blind taste testing?

      Normally, I’d agree, but that may not have to be fondant in this case.  A nice thick glaze poured over it could net a very similar effect.  The cake appears to have some kind of red outer coating, and you get the fleshy pink show through by varying the thickness – which would seem to be easier with a glaze than with fondant sheet… or so I can hope, anyway.

    Well, maybe not…

    Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. See http://allrecipes.com/recipe/kitty-litter-cake/

    I… I think I would have difficulty eating that. Or at least, taking the first bite.

    why couldn’t they have made one that looks baked?

    Cory, in regards to your use of the word “magnificent” to describe this cake: that word might not mean what you think it means!

    It really needs ice cream “stuffing.”
