Overview

Rubik’s cubes, fire-breathing dragons, and jack-o-lanterns.

Pirate ships, pianos, and Star Wars figurines.

With Instructables.com’s Amazing Cakes, you’ll be able to make cakes shaped like animals, mythical creatures, and vehicles. They may light up, breathe fire, or blow bubbles or smoke. They may be 3D or they may be animated, seeming to move of their own free will. Whether they’re cute and cuddly (like a penguin) or sticky and gross (like a human brain!), these cakes have two things in common: They’re (mostly) edible and they’re amazing!

Instructables.com authors walk you through each step of the process as you cut plywood for cake bases, hardwire figurines for automation, and mix nontoxic chemicals for explosions and eruptions. The photos accompanying the step-by-step directions provide additional information about the processes and enable you to compare your final products with the originals created by the expert cake artists of Instructables.com.

In addition to the cakes mentioned above, you’ll also learn how to make cakes shaped like:

• Yoda
• Helicopters
• 3D dinosaurs
• Moving tanks
• Pi signs (p)
• Bass fish
• Zombie heads
• Swimming pools
• Ladybugs
• Evil clowns
• And more!
