2011 Cake Show: Adult Intermediate Division, part two

Adult Intermediate

Developing skills. 2 to 4 years cake decorating experience; 30 to 60 hours of cake decorating or sugar art instruction. Open to all styles.

There were so many entries in this division that I had to break it up into three posts so I can include all the cakes I liked. This is part two with Wedding, Buttercream Only, and Special Techniques.

***As with most of the divisions and categories, I didn’t photograph every entry. These are ones I liked or that caught my eye for some reason.***

Wedding Tiered Cakes: Cakes with two or more tiers decorated specifically for weddings or anniversaries. Any techniques or sugar mediums may be used.

Walrus Humanoid with Spear (World of Warcraft)
by Chris Suson Wingler
While this is an amazing piece of work, I also have to admit I find humanoid walruses with codpieces funny. Thank you Chris, for giving me the opportunity to be able to say that.
Tuskarr of Northrend butt

Oh! And how about that walrus butt?

I somehow didn’t get photos of the second and third place winner for this category. (I thought I did. I must be losing it.)
