    Default White Blaze Cake

    I got bit by the backpacking bug this summer and went on a 65 mile section hike of the AT. Recently my one friend and fellow hiker celebrated his birthday. So in honor of him and our trip I made this cake (and yes, it really is a cake and its all edible). I decided to come share it on this forum since I thought other backpackers would enjoy seeing it. I'm not familiar with these forums so I'll post the picture and the link in case one doesn't work.

    I do sell cakes and I'd take your money but unless you want to hike to Ohio and pick it up I think we might have a problem... :-(

    Thank you everyone, both for the complements and for the welcome!

    Even though I've only backpacked once, I loved it and I may stick around on this forum, who knows? Should I start a whole line of backpacking inspired cakes? lol

    While I love both backpacking and cake decorating I do think it would be a bit tricky to do both at the same time...

    Wow, I scanned your FB page; you are very talented. Is there a blue blaze to Ohio?

    lol, thank you. I'm not aware of any blue blazes that long. That would be nice!

    Wow, someone else on here who knows cake lingo? The bark is chocolate, but not modeling chocolate. I melted the chocolate and spread it all over the cake. Then I used more melted chocolate to attach other pieces of chocolate bark that I had previously made.

    I'm a regular chef. My brother is a pastry chef. It's hard to tell in a picture what kind of chocolate is used. Great work!

    That cake is really cool. I'll bet I could eat it in one sitting.
