Wall Mounted Unicorn Head tutorial video


So a while back I decided to make a wall mounted cake for my daughter's birthday party.

Y'know like you do. Y'all completely know how it is.

Well embarrassingly I videoed myself making it - first go, no do overs and this you tube video below is the result.

Yup pretty much it took me nearly 6 months to put it up as, I think I was on a sugar high while I recorded it, and then a sugar low, and then another high.

Oh yeah whoever it is out there leaving messages on Youtube that they don't like my voice, seriously this is how I talk, I'm from Australia, you should hear me say G'day :)

Anyhoo, so as well as the video I thought I would tell the story of the cake which only exists because my brother helped me out. He is always happy to help me out with crazy idea's and one day I messaged him the following:

'Hi I have a super crazy cake idea that will need a structural engineer or maybe you to help me out for 'Sweet's' birthday do you have a little time?'

To which I received the answer 'Sure. When?'

I followed up with a number of very confusing messages and the following picture.

Yup, this happened. I sent a picture of Pinky Pie 
in front of a frame to try and explain what I wanted.

And yet still he came over and worked out the following support structure for my unicorn head cake.

That's actually not a mirror it's some type of contact like sticky stuff. The gold frame is a plasticy frame from Ikea spray painted gold.

I didn't get a chance to take many process shots like I usually do but if you check out the video I go into all the detail of the hair, horn, eyes, etc.
