Bowling Bag Cake and Edible Shoes

It's an old cliche that we are our own worst critics, but the saying holds so true when it comes to making custom cakes for our clients. There are not many cakes that leave the shop that I look at and think "we could have done something a little better on that cake."  Then the client sees the cake and just loves it!

The bowling bag cake pictured above is definately not one of the cakes I think this about as it is probably one of my favorite cakes we've done (OK, so I have to give Pam the credit for a great cake!). I love the shape, the decorations ,the vibrant colors, and the edible shoes are so perfect!

This is the third bowling-themed cake we've done for the same client who holds her birthday parties with a bowling bash every year. Can't wait to see what next year's cake looks like!

Here's a picture of the edible shoes drying (we use plastic wrap to help hold the shape as it dries).


  1. Amazing, can I wear those shooes. It is very hard to believe I can eat them, he he.

  2. So incredibly realistic. Amazing job.

  3. I love the cake and shoes - the colors are fab! As for those shoes - I always find it so hard to make matching pairs - you did awesome!

    How much would a cake this size feed and how much would it cost?

  5. Thanks, Anonymous! The cake can be made just about any size which factors into the price of the cake. I think this cake was made for 35 servings.

  6. This is absolutely awesome you guys should be on the cake competition show

  7. I agree with Hilbert. Your work is amazing! I have seen much less intricate work on the various cooking competitions.
