I made this five layer Wedding Cake for a 10th anniversary solo show I had in Syracuse, NY. The germination period was about 5 years and involved various experiments with different materials for the base form of the cake.  Plaster of Paris was one of the materials experimented with, however it was much too heavy! Foil wrapped foam insulation ended up being the material of choice which was carved into round cake-like layers w/ a serrated knife and glued together. To create the frosting I tinted caulk with acrylic paint, let it dry slightly then piped it through a piping bag with various decorative tips.

As a side note- in the first photograph of the cake (w/ dark background) I had to remove one of the layers because the cake was too tall for the back drop paper.

Materials: Particle board, foam insulation, styrofoam, stained glass, mirrored stained glass, porcelain flowers, vintage cake topper, caulk, acrylic paint, construction adhesive, tile grout

Dimensions: 40″H x 18″W

Date Completed: March 2003
