1  more dirty cakes! [adults only!] in Dessert by socksuka on: May 16, 2008 06:23:30 PM
after the great success of the butt cake, i made two more dirty cakes for a friend and his fiancee's engagement party.  the boob cake was for him, and the penis cake for her.  this time around i used the marshmallow fondant and it was awesome!  tasted great and gave me that smooth finish.  i also made the buttercream from scratch (recipe off the same site as the fondant recipe) and it was amazing.  i tried to make the cake from scratch as well, but it came out rock hard, so i had to go box at the last minute.

what do you guys think?  they loved their gifts!  i did have some slight problems with the fondant on the boob cake.  you can see some irregularity (cellulite?) on the left boob.  not quite sure what happened, but it kept cracking, so i had to go over it a lot with water and then brush cornstarch over the whole thing to dry it off.  it was weird.

2  My First Foray into Cake Decorating: The Ass Cake! in Dessert by socksuka on: February 03, 2008 12:13:59 PM
Hey everyone!

So, I'm usually a pie girl, but I was inspired after eating a very mediocre cake from our local erotic bakery.  They had just made a regular sheet cake and plopped a huge set of marzipan boobs on there, so they really weren't edible.  In my opinion, if you're going to make a cake, the best part better taste good!  So I decided to try it out on a birthday cake for my roommate Sabrina.  See, you can see her name on the right cheek. Wink

I used two oven safe bowls to cook the cheeks and then cut a piece off each so they would fit together nicely.  Then I put them on top of a sheet cake carved to look like legs and a back.

Then I frosted the whole shebang.  I mixed the skin color myself.

Then I made undies out of marzipan.

What do you guys think?  I wish I could have used something more smooth for the skin, but I've never worked with anything other than frosting and I was afraid sugarpaste or the other thing that starts with f wouldn't taste good.  Suggestions?

3  Pearl and Bamboo Jewelry in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by socksuka on: December 26, 2007 02:34:20 PM
Hi guys,

I got a great price on freshwater pearls right before Christmas, so I had a beading bonanza!  They are all kind of variations on the same thing.  I like sculptural jewelry, so a lot of the stuff I do is multi-strand in one or more places and can be worn in a variety of different ways.

Here I made a "bead" by taking two caps and wrapping several strands of pearls together.  It sits off center on the clavicle.

This is a more conservative piece for my boyfriend's mom.  It's a long string of pearls that break off into multi-strand in places.  You can wear it as either a bracelet or a necklace.

This one is my favorite.  It has the same idea as the necklace for the focal point, but like the last one, you can wear it as either a bracelet or a necklace.  This is the one that inspired the whole set... I needed to make some jewelry for a girl who is earthy and not that conservative, but is a lawyer and must dress the part.  I thought the bamboo really brought down the traditionalism of the pearls, but still kept it elegant and interesting.

What do you guys think?  I would love critiques!

4  Ugly Christmas Sweater => Ugly Hanukkah Sweater in Winter Holidays by socksuka on: December 26, 2007 02:18:54 PM
My sister and I had an ugly christmas sweater themed party to go to, but, being Jews, we had no closets to raid!  So, we decided to represent and make our own ugly hanukkah sweater for the party.  First, she found a beautiful cropped blue number with shoulder pads at a thrift store, then we made our own appliques with double sided fusible interfacing.  It came out AWESOME!

5  Drawings for my application to RISD in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by socksuka on: March 18, 2007 02:30:17 PM
I'm applying to the industrial design program at the Rhode Island School of Design for next fall and I had to do three drawings for my application.  The first had to be of a bike, the second of an interior or exterior environment and the third could be anything I wanted.  The first and third came out the best, because I did the third on the day the application was due. Wink

I'd love comments!  My theme was looking at things from another perspective.


Sorry for the awful quality of the photos.  I couldn't use flash because it reflected weirdly off the graphite.  Finished sizes are 16x20 (although the bike is 18x24 because the photo was taken before I trimmed it).  I took photos of my subjects first and then sketched from printouts.  I don't do well if my subjects move. Wink
