Ultimate Cake Off – Behind the Scenes

Last night was the premier of Ultimate Cake Off in which I, along with Liz and Alison, assisted Katie Robinson in creating a 6 foot tall wedding cake that set new standards on what a wedding cake can be.

It was such an amazing experience to be on the team and work with such talented cake artists. I find it so amazing that something that took months of planning can be condensed to a 1 hour show!

Here are some of the behind the scenes footage of the prep and filming. Enjoy!

By using Styrofoam dummies we were able to see what the final cake structure would look like

This is one of the early cake sketches

a few months later and after one grueling day….here is the finished cake!

Besides for time, there were a lot of other elements that went into preparing for this monstrous cake.

51 pounds of butter, 54 pounds of sugar, 113 cups of sour cream, 32 pounds of white chocolate, 10 pounds of gumpaste and 65 pounds of fondant to name a few….

A lot of our materials and tools were brought in from New York.

Here’s some of the luggage the team flew with

While the rest of the team was flying to LA, I was transporting all of our cake and frosting.

Our Kitchen!

and the competition begins

Time’s up and cake is done!

Once the cake was done we got to pose for some much needed glamor shots
