Coolest Camera Cake

This camera cake is not as hard as it is impressive. The cake itself is very basic, it’s the camera that’s challenging. You will need black food coloring paste, and a photo of an SLR camera to work with up close. You can use silver balls for buttons, I used chocolate Bridge Mixture bits for the buttons etc. You can also go one step farther (if it’s a digital SLR cake) and stick a photo of the birthday person on the back where the view screen is.

I used a Ding Dong and an Oreo Cakester for the lens (to give it two different sizes). There’s not much more to it than that, other than having to cut a portion of the cake into a smaller piece – use a reasonably fat wedge of cake for the camera body, and a small shaped piece for the little bump on top of the camera.

“Glue” the pieces together with icing, and I would suggest fully icing each piece before sticking it together and then doing “touch up” work once it’s together – it’s easier to ensure a proper icing job is done that way.

I used a white writer icing tube for writing the word “Nikon” on it. Good luck and have fun!
