This has been my favorite cake to make to date! I love recreating real objects and was super excited when my friend asked me to make this camera cake for her husbands 40th. What I loved even more is that my husband enjoyed getting involved in this one. Its a real mans cake I think. The bottom base of the cake and the camera are made of chocolate mud cake covered in chocolate fondant. The lens and the film roll were made from rice crispy treats covered in chocolate fondant. The negative and the strap of the camera are made from modeling chocolate. A lot of planning went into this cake and it came together so well because of it.
The party was in Auckland so we took the opportunity to have a night away with only one of the kids and visited some close friends. It was a fantastic time and it was special catching up with some great people. Even better, there was no issue in the transport of the cake. Phew! I am going to start looking into properly getting cakes couriered so if you live outside of Tauranga I may still be able to make you a cake!
