09/03 Pinterest Pin(s) of the Week: Creative Cakes

by Pennie on September 3, 2013

I have two nieces, both of whom are very creative (they take after their mother not my brother, their father).  Since they were young they have been artists, or photographers or singers or some other creative thing that I have little or no talent for.  The younger of the two has, in the past couple of years, become an amateur/semi professional cake decorator.  She has done things with fondant that I could never even dream of.

Since I follow her on Pinterest, I get to see an array of cakes which she has pinned because they are inspirational to her.  These aren’t her cakes, but cakes she finds intriguing.  I thought I would show you a few because they are pretty darn amazing.  Some are funny, some are serious, but lots of them just look like edible sculptures!

Blogger Rosie Alyea of Sweetapolita created this cute rainbow doodle cake for her daughter’s fourth birthday. With six rainbow layers inside, the best part was the birthday girl’s doodles, done in food-color markers over a layer of white fondant.  It’s simple and adorable and makes her daughter (not the cake) the focus of the celebration.


I also like the simplicity of this balloon cake from Happy Cakes by Renee.  So sweet for a kid event.

HappyCakesByReneeThis Pinata Cake from Lindsey Makes could be used for events other than a birthday, don’t you think?  There is a tutorial for this one!


This Owl Baby Shower Cake is from Cake Central.  I like the soft colors and the “buttons” around the base of the top layer.  (And I always say things are a hoot, so that appeals to me as well!)


This is an amazing Painted Cake by Amelies House.  You have to have a lot of talent to do something like this!

This Chevron Cake was created for a Baby Shower by Madison’s on Main.  How do they create those lines with such precision?


This cake moves into a range of creativity that is mind boggling to me. How do you make a cake look like a Lobster Bake?  Pink Cake Box shows us how.


The first look I had of this cake was just the cake, no person. I really looked at it a long time before I believed it was a cake.  Seriously. Then I saw the cake beside a person. It’s shocking how real this looks – the OPI Nail Lacquer Cake by Luna Cakes!


Look at this cake.  Unless I could touch it, I’d swear it was material. From Your Wedding Support is this Tartan cake. And look at the detail of that braid.  Fabulous!


Ok, last one, just because I’m fascinated by it.  This is an interpretation of a Can-Can Dancer by Colette’s Cakes.  Can you believe this is all edible?

CanCanI’m once again amazed by the creativity that is out in the world, thanks to Pinterest.

They’re all amazing! I love the idea of the first cake. I have no creative talent whatsoever when it comes to cake decorating so I’m amazed by what some people come up with.

The Doodle design cake and the nail polish cake are reallllly cool. I love looking at creative cakes. I was just on a site that showed cakes inspired by the movies/cartoons of Tim Burton – really cool designs.

What an awesome blog Pennie, I love it. You’ve choosen some of my favorites too. The tartan cake is my all time favorite cake. I follow so many cake broads on Pinterest. Seeing all the things people do with cake gives me something to inspire to and helps me dream big for every cake I make.

I wish I was talented in the cake decorating field too but I’m not. All the cakes are pretty neat. I love the pinata cake the most.
