Coolest Cake Decoration Idea and Photos

This cake was for a “Day at the Movies” party we held to thank office workers. Although I usually copy/adapt most of my cake ideas from others I find online, I couldn’t find anything I liked for a movie theme. This is the most original cake decoration idea I’ve done.

I found this basic movie camera outline in some clip art and enlarged it.

I made a stencil by tracing it onto wax paper with a sharpie pen. I then outlined the back side of wax paper with icing gel, and pressed it onto a frosted cake. I Piped in stars into outlined the shape, then used candy melts and two sizes of M&M candies for details of reels and machine.

Here’s the highlight – I cut Fruit by the Foot to make “film” and wound it around!
