Realistic Burrito Cake
Body | Food


It was made by Elizabeth Marek at Oregon’s Artisan Cake Company, and it looks good enough to eat.
The cake itself is chocolate with peanut butter mousse filling, but you’d never know it from the outside. The tortilla is made from fondant icing, and scorched with a blowtorch. All the details except the tinfoil are made of fondant. The rice, meat, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and olives are all fondant. The guacamole and sour cream is buttercream.

Amazing T-Rex Illusion is somehow moving its head to follow you!

By Ben on Thu Dec 26 2013 |
Gear | Video
This is based on the famous dragon illusion inspired by Jerry Andrus, which involves designing a 2D figure that’s titled at just the right angle to give the illusion of movement. Made by brusspup.
"I've always wanted to try this illusion with several of these at once. I wanted to use 20 or 30 but after I tried a test with only 12, I realized 20 or 30 was going to be too many. So another thing I've always wanted to try was to have a large version. The original file was about 9 feet X 9 feet. I had to split the image into 4 files so the printer as my local print shop could print it. I traced all of the pieces on cardboard which I used to build a support structure for the prints. I used small pieces of cardboard and hot glue to make the structure really solid. One problem that I had was that the paper for the large dragon was really shiny. So if you look closely you can see the reflection of the eyes on the "top" and side panels. I bought some matte spray to try and minimize the reflections. It worked a little. Over all I was happy with the results."
