3D cakes are so very popular from purses to donuts. Yes, donuts! This 3D Donut class taught by Assistant Organizer Zakia Hassan, taught students the basics of cake carving, covering a cake with fondant, and presentation.
A round, frosted, and filled cake is cored and carved for that yummy doughnut effect.
The "doughnut" is covered with fondant.
Covered with sprinkles and placed in a bakery box, it looks oh so yummy!
