Welcome to the world of extreme cake making, where sugar craft specialists dream up ever more elaborate ways to satisfy our sweet tooth.
Sugar craft specialist Eloise Durrant has a commission like no other: a gravity-defying, five-tier cake that will hang upside down like a chandelier. Meanwhile, Phil and Christine Jensen embark on one of their biggest and most ambitious cakes to date -- a seven-foot-long cake with a Wallace and Gromit theme estimated to take over 400 hours to complete.
Husband and wife team Phil and Christine Jensen hope to scale new heights with a very fishy commission: a five-foot long lemon and elderflower cake designed to look like a leaping fish decorated with over 17 pounds of sugar paste. Meanwhile, an expectant couple asks baker Eloise Durrant to bake a special cake, the color of which will reveal their baby's gender to party guests ... and to the parents-to-be!
Creating an extreme cake takes a special kind of person -- someone like sugar craft specialist Eloise Durrant who is asked to make a three-foot-tall fairy cake for a toddler's birthday party. Also, Michelle Wibowo produces a six-foot-long miniature steam train made entirely out of cake, while wedding cake designer Karisha Pithwa makes a five-tier cake with nearly 900 edible iced flowers.
Michelle Wibowo has been commissioned by a publishing company to create a cake that looks identical to a set of four legal volumes -- all the way down to the leather binding and gold leaf inscriptions. Later, Molly Robbins embarks on a cake designed to be the same size and shape of a Shetland pony and wedding cake specialist Suzanne Thorp is tasked with a cake that's over two feet tall and includes 250 handcrafted sugar flowers.
Extreme cake maker Molly Robbins has been asked to create a five-tier cake with an Alice in Wonderland theme, complete with an edible Cheshire Cat and a pouring teapot. Meanwhile, Michelle Wibowo is given her most challenging commission yet -- a birthday cake in the shape of a life-size bust of the birthday girl, hidden inside a three-feet-tall edible chocolate eggshell.
Molly Robbins has a very tall order -- a celebration cake for a customer to help him celebrate 35 years as a drag artist. The cake will be a life-size ball gown complete with 50 edible peacock feathers and 3,000 gold flowers. Meanwhile, chocolatier Tracy Kindred has been asked to produce a four-tiered wedding cake covered in more than 65 pounds of chocolate and decorated with hand-painted, edible scenes from the bride and groom's life together.
Extreme cake maker Michelle Wibowo creates a five-foot edible Wizard of Oz mural out of delicious vanilla cake, painted icing and sweets for one lucky little birthday girl. Meanwhile, Nastassja Lusengo brings out the bling, decorating one of her famous red velvet cakes in edible gold leaf. Bakers Phil and Christine Jensen create a four-tier cake with 28 edible tulip decorations inspired by the Queen's House in Greenwich, near London.
Chocolatier Tracey Kindred loves thinking outside the box, and a gruesome, four-tier wedding cake that pays tribute to a bride and groom's love of all things gothic is right up her alley. Cake maker Nastassja Lusengo combines multiple themes in a cake for an 11-year-old girl who is headed to Nigeria for school. The cake design includes the colors of the Nigerian flag and a hand-carved sugar silhouette of the London skyline.
