How a Lumberjack Cake is Made

Look at this cake! How did the baker get a red flannel shirt inside it? Professional cake artist Liz Marek of Sugar Geek Show shows us how she makes a lumberjack cake. Not that any of us are willing to put this much work into a cake. Even if we did, it wouldn't go this smoothly, nor end up as nice.

In the first two and half minutes, you'll know how the red flannel is done. She uses two layers of chocolate cake, two layers of red velvet cake, and two layers of yellow cake with some red dye to make the four layers of flannel shirt. Then she models a mostly-edible chocolate axe to go with it, then frosts the outside of the cake to look like a crosscut tree stump! I wouldn't go to this much trouble to make my own wedding cake. But if you have a hankering to try this one yourself, there's a tutorial with words that explains all the steps at Sugar Geek Show. -via Nag on the Lake
