How much time do you spend watching cat, fail, and music videos on YouTube? It’s a great way to waste some time but it’s also an excellent way to teach yourself how to do something awesome. This would include watching some cake tutorials.
If you spend any amount of time watching the Food Network, I’m sure that you have seen your fair share of fondant cake designs. You may have even wondered how you could do something so awesome yourself, and you are about to have one of those moments again.
In the video below, you see a cake artist, ‘Cakes StepbyStep‘ create something that can only be referred to as a piece of art. If you are interested in making a cake for yourself or someone you love, you may want to try this.
The first close-up shows a simple chocolate sponge cake being frosted using Italian meringue icing. As the couch is slowly being put together, it is sliced and stacked as large pieces of cake are being cut away.
After the cake has been cut and the icing is applied, then the first sheet of chocolate fondant comes into view. Fondant is not necessarily the easiest thing to work with, but if you don’t get it on right the first time, you may have a second shot at it.
Fortunately, Cakes StepbyStep has things well in hand as they crease the cushions and create the bottom of the sofa. Watching this is almost hypnotic but don’t allow yourself to get distracted. This is really something that you can do if you put your mind to it!
As you watch the video, you will see how to build it from the ground up and even put on the finishing touches. You can even download a template from their website to make things easier.
