3D Nikon D610 Cake

I made this personalized 3D Nikon camera cake for the very first time. I’m so glad I created it with ease and confidence that it turned out to be this beautiful.

My avid client Kathy made this order for his dad.. She said on her facebook page that

“since daddy’s passion is photography…..and inspired by his new Nikon D610, here is grandpa’s edible red velvet camera cake.”

They have celebrated his daddy’s 61st birthday at home and surprised him after his work with this personalized cake.

Before I baked the cake, I printed out the camera’s prototype and used it as my basis to carved the red velvet cake.

I also baked two recipes of my red velvet cake in a rectangular pan with size 12″ x 9″ in two layers.

Then, I use the top front view of the cake to set the cake size.

I slowly scraped the doomed part of the cake to level it flat.

Using the cream cheese frosting, the cake were stacked on top of each other.

I cut out a piece of cardboard as the base for the flash and wrapped it with a cling film.

I used again the printed camera guide to make sure that the lens’ base is positioned on top where the flash is located.

Attached the lens’ base with a cream cheese frosting.

Using a fondant ellipse cutter, I carved the contour on the cake body and the lens area.

To create additional contour, I attached another red velvet on the hand-held position of the camera.

I inserted two barbeque sticks to hold the cake and keep it stable. Then placed a thin layer of red velvet on top of the flash.

I also coated the entire cake with the frosting and placed it in the refrigerator to harden before covering it with fondant.

Next, I cut four circles of the red velvet using the circle cookie cutter for the lens.

Then, I also cut a circle cardboard and wrap it with cling film, This will be the base or the cover of the lens.

The circle cakes were stacked on top of each other using the frosting.

The entire lens is coated with cream cheese and placed in the fridge.

I first work on the lens and covered it with black fondant.

Then, made the len’s rubber strips.

I’m really sorry my camera battery went empty while decorating the camera body, so i wasn’t able to take any pictures of it.

But anyway, I slowly cover the camera cake with black fondant.. trying to work on it’s contour and edges.

Then after sometime, this is how the cake looked like:

I used silver dust to paint the camera’s intricate details like the LCD, eyepiece, and lens.

And this is the cake inside it’s box before delivery.
