How a Lumberjack Cake is Made

Professional cake artist Liz Marek of Sugar Geek Show shows us how she makes a lumberjack cake. In the first two and half minutes, you'll know how the red flannel is done. She uses two layers of chocolate cake, two layers of red velvet cake, and two layers of yellow cake with some red dye to make the four layers of flannel shirt. Then she models a mostly-edible chocolate axe to go with it, then frosts the outside of the cake to look like a crosscut tree stump! I wouldn't go to this much trouble to make my own wedding cake. If you want to try this one yourself, there's a tutorial with words and stuff that explains all the steps at Sugar Geek Show. (via Nag on the Lake)

Frosting on the horizontal and vertical surfaces of all five rings in all four layers. All that work and then hack it up. Better back off sucka, this cake is going to be bronzed on the mantle next to Grandma's ashes.

Birthday cake? I'm going to count the rings and see how old I am.

Oddly compelling.
