Well, putting the picture of the actual building next to it makes it much too easy, but I immediately could tell that it was the Guggenheim Museum in New York, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. :P

From what I can tell, it's pretty good considering that it's made out of standard cake mix and frosting.

you didn't vote to rate the cake

thanks for the feedback. I'd give my right arm for a proper mixer so i can have more control over the cake density. Makes for better scuplting.

You know I put this in the wrong forum. It should be in Art, Music and Photos.

Hmm, looks good, but I'd probably invest in one of those cheapo frosting sets with the different nibs. They have some of the flatter, wider nibs that might have helped with the thicker stripes. As-is, I think it looks really nice! Also, you might want to see if you can find fondant in your area (or find a good recipe.) It's exceptional for a smooth, professional finish on cakes and is very easy to sculpt :).
"The rest of the poem plays upon that pun. On the contrary, says Catullus, although my verses are soft (molliculi ac parum pudici in line 8, reversing the play on words), they can arouse even limp old men. Should Furius and Aurelius have any remaining doubts about Catullus' virility, he offers to fuck them anally and orally to prove otherwise." - Catullus 16, Wikipedia

I could tell that was the Guggenheim in the first picture. Good work. And I'll send this to AMP.

You could tell what is was before i frosted and decorated it. Wow that speaks volumes about how distinctive the shape of the building is. Do you think I should have added the annex to the cake?
