Antique Grand Piano Cake

Antique Grand Piano!

Antique Grand Piano!

I decided to make a birthday cake for my little brother's birthday party we were hosting at our house. I thought it would be a good idea to surprise him with a cake that incorporates him favorite activity, playing the piano.


The grand piano I made is completely edible and is especially appetizing to any chocolate addict.

I created the molds to create the shell of the piano, and the various pieces that comprise the top of the piano, as well as its chocolate foundation.

The legs I personally carved using a razor blade and I was also able to carve a simple layer of Swiss chocolate cake into the shape of the piano's torso, and fit it perfectly inside.

To finish off the cake I used an airbrush to lightly administer a layer of luter dust food coloring to give it somewhat of an antique finish. Also, I placed some raspberries and cream to give the piece more of a fuller and colorful look.

Here's another view of the piano birthday cake picture

unfortunately not, I thought someone took a few pictures of it, however I was never able to get in contact with them. Ill tell you something though... it certainly was scrumpdidliuptious. The tree stood almost one and a half feet tall. Its trunk was made out of alternating chocolate and mint n' chip ice cream segments. the upper segments had solid chocolate vranches (5 to be exact) which each carried a chocolate disk holing a miniature red velvet cake and rasberry sorbet. The upper most layer which symbolized the larger portion or the branches and trees was a cake comprised of red velvet and mint n' chip.

The ice cream/chocolate tree cake sounds very interesting - have any pictures of that one?

Well, between taking the time to think up a way to create the cake (this really didn't take up too much time), creating molds for the chocolate, creating each chocolate piece, and placing the finishing touches you will be looking at 18 hours. I honestly love to build elaborate cakes that simply challenge ones mind both visually and in an architectural sense. I also spent 40 hours making an ice cream and chocolate tree cake this past new years for a friend/client. That was very very difficult as well.

That looks like it was a lot of hard work! Have you attempted such a cake previously? Great job.
