I channeled my inner Cake Boss yesterday. It is my brother’s birthday today and I got this crazy idea to make him a cake…. I have never done anything like this, and, in typical Shyla fashion, I think I can make something and end up spending WAY too much time and money in the quest. Luckily this only took me a few hours and was pretty inexpensive to create!

My bro Mark is a photographer as well so I thought I would pay homage to our careers!

Allow me to introduce the CAMERA CAKE…

Shaping the camera body and rolling out fondant…

buttercream frosting helps the fondant stick…

the first fondant attempt. Not perfect but it works. Add a little Twizzlers Pull-n-peel to make it an L-series lens

adding a strap  to hide the imperfections…

The final product

I missed getting a shot with all the candles
