I'm someone who loves looking at recipes and food porn at almost every chance I get. Even though I have spent a near-embarrassing amount of time drooling over virtual food, few food albums have made my jaw drop the way this one did.
Imgurian ChristineHMcConnell posted an album documenting how she made an awesome Gizmo cake before things went terribly awry. Not only do these cakes look delicious, but the album also tells a pretty funny story. Check out her incredible work here:
I started with Rambo Gizmo...
He's made up of a Caramel pecan turtle cake! I sculpted his eyes out of modeling chocolate and finished them with a clear piping gel for the wet effect :)
He was getting a few finishing touches...
... when disaster struck!
A few hours later this popped out of my oven '=/
A wheat grass & walnut Carrot cake/demonic gremlin... His eye balls are carved out of carrots :D
Although before I could figure out what to do; he escaped...
How amazing is that? My condolences to ChristineHMcConnell's family, but at least they have some delicious looking cake to ease their pain! Let's just hope they're not still snacking after midnight.
