Threadless t-shirt design and create a cake. I chose a design that would be really challenging. I used a 2-D image of a face profile, and translated that into a 3-D cake sculpture. My entry and process photos can be viewed here. The t-shirt design I chose was aptly titled: "The Blind Conscience".
I managed to use all cake except for 2 smalls straws and a thin, 4" long piece of foam core under the jaw. I had some issues with humidity and had to keep refrigerating the head as I worked on it, and ultimately decided to slant the head upward to help keep it stable. Gravity... The cake was my dark chocolate cake filled with vanilla-ginger icing, and covered in vanilla fondant (all ingredients are vegan). This year's entry was definitely more challenging, but it was a lot of fun! I really enjoy sculpting cakes.
