I made this Wedding Cake for a solo 10th anniversary show I had in Syracuse, NY. The germination period took about 5 years and involved various experiments with different types of materials for the base form of the cake. Plaster of Paris was one of the materials experimented with, however it proved to be much too heavy! Good ole’ 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.
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
