3D Sculpted Trophy Deer Groom’s Cake, Lexington KY

3D Sculpted Trophy Deer Cake, Lexington KY

This trophy deer groom’s cake was hand-sculpted and is completely edible (except for the support structure). The bride called in somewhat of a panic. She had originally booked a simple groom’s cake with a small sculpted deer figurine with another baker. Less than 2 months from the wedding, the baker cancelled. The bride saw a photo of one of my sculpted deer cakes online and called. Luckily I had an opening & she planned this wonderful surprise groom’s cake for her fiance!

The deer stands roughly 30″ tall. The neck is carved from cake and buttercream. The head is hand-sculped from 5 lbs of modeling chocolate. The entire structure is covered in fondant and hand painted with edible color. The antlers are hand shaped from modeling chocolate with a food-safe internal structure to help with support. In front of the deer is a sign that reads “The hunt is over!”. The sign & sign holder are made from sugar paste and are hand painted with edible color.

I can’t wait to see the professional photos of this cake. As I understand it, the groom took a giant bite out of the deer’s nose! This groom’s cake fit in perfectly with the reception held at the Keene Barn at Keeneland in Lexington, KY.
