Robot Cake

Saturday, my parents and friends threw me a surprise birthday party! And if that wasn't cool enough, my mom had made the cake look like Robot. Chocolate and vanilla cake, licorice, Rolos, cinnamon rolls, Snickers bars, and Sugar Babies. Yum!(Its black and white because she based it off of my memopad)

IR Cake.

Hello, Some friends asked my wife to do a birthday cake for a girl of eight years. With her ‹age she is crazy about princesses. Well, what came to mind was that despite having done many projects with Arduino i had never applied electronics in a cake. So we decided to join forces and add some light (RGB LED) and movement (DC motor controlled with an L298) to the cake. Here is the link to the video:;

Cake shaping advice?

This year I've started trying to make more advanced cakes and was wondering how other people shape their cakes?  I know there's the basic way of cutting(for example into flat heart shapes and such) but for the more 3D detailed cakes what's the way to do it? Is it the same way?  I thought perhaps its possible to use a similar techinque that's used for some cake pops, where you mix in a semi sweet icing or thickener into cake to create a dough like texture for moulding but would that be to pastey and not cake like enough? I really want to try shaped cakes but I haven't known how, so if anyone could help it would be very much appreciated! Thank you!

7 Layer Cake

My baking skills are not good enough for me to do this on my own, but I'd love to see an Instructable on making a traditional 7 Layer Cake. I was surprised to find it in the supermarket freezer the other day and wished I knew how to make it (at least in theory). It is usually only found somewhere where there is a large Jewish or Eastern European influence and there seems to be fewer and fewer bakeries making it so I'd love to have a recipe for posterity should I ever be inclined to give it a try. It was the first time I've seen it in California (and it was shipped from a bakery in Brooklyn no less!).

Wedding Cake Toppers

Since samesex marriages became legal here in Sweden two days ago it is becomming clear that no one is making those little figures that go on top of the cake in more than one theme (guess wich one). There is the usual pair but they're often plastic molded as one piece and needs a LOT of work to mod. We need an instructable showing how to make, mod, mold, sculpt, massproduce or even bake toppers for Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, Transexuals and Transvestites (I've probably forgotten someone).

How to fix this cake stand?

Hi everyone! I bought this cake stand off ebay to use for our wedding cake. It's made of some kind of thin metal. The problem is that the upper plate seems wobbly where it attaches to the pedestal underneath. At this point I'd worry about whether it would be sturdy enough to support a 3 tier cake. I'm wondering if there's a way to re-enforce the seam between the pedestal and the plate to give it more stability? You can see the seam right below the "bowl" part of the upper plate. Would something like epoxy putty work? I'd like to avoid taking the whole thing apart if possible. (Don't mind the weird orange green colouring - I plan to spray paint the whole stand). Any advice or input would be great!

Cheesecake (hmmmmmm cake :) ) but no Instructable!??

Short story, long version :) : I had an arguement with my sister about how to make a proper cheesecake as her'S either end up as a soaking mess or taste horrible. To my surpise we settled down quickly and discovered she uses traditional Australian recepies based on weird things like cottage cheese, ricotta and so on. Of course cheesecake is many hundrets if not thausands of years old and what we see today has nothing in common with the cakes from that time - but there is one thing our modern cakes all have in common: They are based on what is available in terms of "fresh" cheese or stuff that looks like it, for example Philadelphia. Where I come from a cheesecake might have some other cheese substitues included in the mix for texture and taste but the main ingredient is QUARK. So my sister and I went to get some quark for the next bake off... Let me tell you this much: If you are in AU you either won't get any at all or pay top prices! I consider 9$ for 500g cheap around here! :( And it simply does not taste right as everyone has to include some variation to it. I say for a proper cheescake quark is needed! Now my big question: Do you have similar porblems obtaining quark for your deserts and baking needs? If so I might consider to make an Instructable explaining how to make your own quark at home on the cheap. Maybe even include a piece of cheesecake ;)
