this cake was for Gong Gong means Ah Gong or grandpa
i did not get the full stories why it is a classic vintage version replica of transformer and why this was so special for Gong Gong ?
however from the design aspect , we did our best to follow a picture provided of the transformer and created this version of 3d cake with sugar craft transformer with sprockets and gears
this cake is simply awesome
the part of art appreciation for this cake i will like to point out to all readers
the curls and swirls , is very difficult process for the artist
it needs to be artfully pipe with royal icing ( diff texture : quick dry sugar )
steady hand and correct strokes without marking from a master;s hands
after dry , here is the tough part , the edible gold is mixed to alcohol and using a fine brush to paint it all .
as alcohol dry almost instantly and it take speed and consistency
so the next time whem u expect a golden cake of such fine details , u understand why it cost so much ..
you are paying for the skills and patience behind this cake
