Exquisite! I love the contrast of the soft, painterly depictions against the sharply rendered sculptured look of the top piece.

He he, I might, when he comes back. In the meantime, I am still practicing painting on cakes, here is another one, pulled sugar vase with gumpaste poppies on top, hand painted on the side, I tried either all red poppies or poppies in different colors. I think all red version works better, but there should have been more of them.

I second that!  With all these magnificent creations, a simple toilet seat with screws should be...errrr...a piece of cake!  Grin

The poppy cake - did you also make the base it is sitting on? What a nice mosiac base for this cake!

Yes, I made the base. I love experimenting with different techniques.

Bf's nieces are coming over for dinner tonight, so here is the dessert, almond-lemon-apple base, white chocolate-lemon cream, apple roses in elderflower jelly:

Are you sure those roses are not real?  This is astonishing!

Oh holy cow!  These are just amazing!  Alek0, how long does it take you to make something like that?  Your dinner guests are very lucky!

Takes about 2-3 hours total, counting cooling down times. These are straightforward to make Smiley

I am still practicing painting on cakes, another dummy cake, sugarveil lace on the sides (that stuff is ridiculously expensive but worth it I guess since there is no other
way to get such nice effects, though I'll be trying to come up with homemade version of the thing now when I have finally tried it), hand-painted on the top.

Wow 2 to 3 hours?  Even if I spent 2 to 3 months working on cake, it would never look like that!  Amazing!

What's on the sides is made from sugar?!  It looks like a crocheted lace.  How lovely!
