Miniature Asparagus Cake by Bon-AppetEats Miniature Asparagus Cake by Bon-AppetEats
*Edit: Just wanted to make a note that the asparagus on the real version of the cake is made from fondant - it's not real asparagus slapped onto a cake. :P lol*

Miniature asparagus cake. Based off this cake: [link]

I think I am insane. Well, if not before, then definitely after this.

Made from polymer clay. I tried going for 1:12 scale but I think it's just a little larger than that. :/

And yes, I did make each individual asparagus.

Total time: I lost track at the 6 1/2 hour mark.

Made for the Real vs Fake challenge over at :iconlittle-dreamers:. :)

I've thought about remaking this piece. Then I look at how long it took and decide against it. :P

He featured a picture of the real cake, which I did not make. I only made it into a miniature. :) I did see the meme, and it's pretty funny!

I was just about to say, this would be crazy as a real cake, but then I read your description! That's way too awesome that you've done both.

Thank you, but I haven't made a real version of this. I'd be too afraid of the mess that would result from it to try. lol :)

Ah, haha, yes... I can't imagine how many tries to get the color and the asparagus spears right. Can't imagine how you did it in miniature! At least yours keeps forever, though :D. That gives it a one-up over the cake.

I'd seen the original a while ago and it always stuck with me. I figured since I can't make the real version, might as well do this! lol

Did you make the slice separate? or did you make the entire cake and then sliced it?

I made the cake first without the asparagus and took a slice out then. I then decorated the cake and the slice separately. :)

Cute! Is it frosting made to look like asparagus, or is actually asparagus?
