This past week I heard from Gayle’s editor Danielle that she’s been roped into making a cow cake for her best friend’s birthday. Danielle has never done a sculpted cake, and she asked my advice. I advised Danielle to rent Season 1 of Ace of Cakes. However, I have been able to find some sculpted cake instructional videos to share with you. So, rather than spotlight a particular bakery in this issue, we’re spotlighting sculpting cakes.

Hope this helps Danielle and everybody else with making sculpted cakes! If you make one, please share photos with us.
