Here is the camera cake my mom and I made for my sister who is now in graduate school for photo-journalism.  It turned out pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

Its Yellow cake and minus baking time, it took 3 hours to decorate - a.k.a quite a while

That's wickedly cool! Is that fondant or marzipan for the outside? Or something else? Do you (or your mom)have previous experience with making cakes like this? Kudos to you and your mother!

The outside covering is fondant that we dyed.  The lens is cake that we cut out with a cookie cutter and then covered in fondant as well.  My mom has been making cakes for every holiday there is since I was born; she sort of just picked up on the hobby from the Wilton books, and as for me, I just sort of learned the trade from helping her out.

that is amazing. i love it. i have to ask since i was actually wondering this today. what does the fondant taste like. how does it compare to frosting. not the kind from a can, but the kind that is straight up powdered sugar and someother stuff. do you know what i am talking about? i suppose you could call it decorators frosting.

I think it's TOO good. It looks like a real camera much more than a cake!
