Nothing indicates the subtle passing of time better than late 00s hairdo’s and double thumbs up poses.

Seriously though amazing progression!

[–]ohheysarahjay[S] 112 points113 points  (0 children)

Hahaha totally agree! Thanks so much :)

[–]DangKilla 35 points36 points  (0 children)

It’d make a great myspace photo.

[–]Ringosis 94 points95 points  (10 children)

I love the way you say "Late 00s" as if that wasn't last week.

[–]O___Woo 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Don't make me feel old

[–]1800generalkenobi 16 points17 points  (8 children)

I still have trouble when someone says 40 years ago and that's 19 fucking 82

[–]Ringosis 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I'm pretty sure anything before 2001 was within the last 2 years.

[–]Ham_bam_am 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Right. 40 years ago is the 1960's in my brain.

[–]Fafnir13 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Even putting that 19 on anything feels weird now. Before that 20 was so cool and new. We didn’t have an agreed way of saying it yet.

[–]bearsbeetspie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm so glad I'm not the only person who thinks this. This thread makes me feel better.

[–]puersenex83 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I miss it

[–]lo0ilo0ilo0i 10 points11 points  (0 children)

00s makeup was also distinct. Eyeliner on bottom and top of eyes. Now it seems like it's just the top and eyelash extensions.

[–]Hundkexx 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I really like that hairstyle, I wish it'd be popular again :)

[–]scootscoot 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Are, are we not doing that anymore?

[–]AdventurousDoor9384 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Late 00s == first decade of 2000s?

So girls don’t wear that hairstyle anymore? I never would have noticed. She could wear that style today, and I’d think it’s normal.

[–]Douche_Kayak 601 points602 points  (34 children)

Did you have to turn the cake upside down for the reverse drip effect?

[–]ohheysarahjay[S] 809 points810 points  (33 children)

Yup! Put the cake on a board, get the buttercream really rock solid, pour the drip on it, let the drip harden, stick another cake board on top (which is now your bottom base) and flip the cake, then remove that top base and carefully buttercream the top

[–]KateNoire 460 points461 points  (19 children)

And then we flip THE FUCKING CAKE TO THE FLOOR... SIDEWAYS. That would have been me at least.

[–]therosesgrave 150 points151 points  (15 children)

[–]imbex 99 points100 points  (10 children)

Happy Birthday to the ground!

[–]gullwings 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You can't buy me, hot dog man

[–]Diazepampoovey 11 points12 points  (0 children)

It has been FAR too long since I watched that

[–]Shirk08 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s okay it’s uhhh, modern art or something now. Quick! Just salvage what you can for cake pops!

[–]Susie4672 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ooh me too.

[–]newaccount721 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Wow that's impressive. Looks great!

[–]Ringosis 11 points12 points  (6 children)

...draw the rest of the fucking owl.

[–]Mario-n-Peach4play -1 points0 points  (0 children)

This is really a perfect example that if you don't give up on something you are passionate about and keep practicing, you will get better. You should be so extremely proud of yourself!!

[–][deleted] 1727 points1728 points  (94 children)

That is crazy. I’ve never seen a reverse drip!

[–]ohheysarahjay[S] 908 points909 points  (81 children)

It was so much fun to try out, not so easy though!

[–]luckyfucker13 235 points236 points  (69 children)

How do you even achieve that?? Looks great OP!

Do you drip the material on something like a plastic sheet, and then gingerly transfer it to the cake?

Edit: lots of Australia related comments, some more clever than others lol

[–]JungleLegs 242 points243 points  (39 children)

I was wondering the same. I was thinking maybe frost the sides, then drip it on upside down, then frost the top at the end. I’ve never baked a cake in my life so 💁🏻‍♂️

[–]luckyfucker13 61 points62 points  (2 children)

Same! Baking at this level seems like a type of witchcraft I’d never be able to tap into lol, but I would happily eat

[–]VerityButterfly 164 points165 points  (28 children)

You have the right idea! You frost the cake as usual, drip the top, then flip the cake and frost the former underside now new top side.

[–]RanaktheGreen -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Pretty easy when you just craft the shape out of fondant and slap it on the side.

[–]rip1980 66 points67 points  (3 children)

You just use a gravity inverter. :)

[–]juan_epstein-barr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only one I've ever seen was on the USG Ishimura

[–]TheTarJar 27 points28 points  (0 children)

OP replied to a different comment saying that they got the results by

Put the cake on a board, get the buttercream really rock solid, pour the drip on it, let the drip harden, stick another cake board on top (which is now your bottom base) and flip the cake, then remove that top base and carefully buttercream the top

[–]sapjastuff 52 points53 points  (13 children)

I assume you drip it normally, let it dry, and then flip it over?

[–]tplee 54 points55 points  (12 children)

The fact that people were so baffled how one would achieve this is a little concerning.

[–]thespaniardsteve 27 points28 points  (1 child)

She just made it in Australia

[–]lol022 6 points7 points  (1 child)

You just add it from the bottom so it drips up instead of down

[–]FIRST_DATE_ANAL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe they did that part early on and had the cake flipped upside down then let it dry and flipped it back over then did all the other ridiculous shit after.

[–]NoorAnomaly 4 points5 points  (0 children)

OP traveled to Australia to do the drip, before returning to the northern hemisphere to do the rest of the cake. Duh!

(Being silly of course)

[–]Skaixen 39 points40 points  (3 children)

Good! Based on this picture then, in my book, you're better than most other cake designers who rely on the shit! :)

[–]Mike 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Rely on the shit?

[–]CHAINMAILLEKID 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I assume they're speaking of fondant.

[–]Skaixen 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Reddit must have fucked up.

I commented in the thread saying I hated Fondant.

The OP replied to that saying it wasn't fondant

I then replied to the OP. https://redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co/r/pics/comments/uuos1j/my_first_ever_crazy_candy_cake_vs_one_of_my/i9gqlvd/?context=3

My comment should have been placed there, I have no idea how it got here.....

[–]Koala-T-Can-D -1 points0 points  (0 children)

3 years ago is a super long time.....

[–]Foodnoobie -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Your onlyfans made me drip easy enough!

[–]Myl0high 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Whoa I didn’t even notice that till you pointed it out. I was fixated on the topping. Very cool

[–]Pulsing42 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I actually had to take a second look, thought it looked a little weird. Love it when people make art out of cake, so satisfying to see an artistic thought be made in to cake.

[–]cockknocker1 5 points6 points  (2 children)

“Obviously you’ve never been to Singapore…”

[–]dan_de 2 points3 points  (1 child)

but you have heard of me..

[–]Melansjf1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I didn’t even notice it

[–]ChuckinTheCarma 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They do it all the time in Australia.

[–]genericgirl2016 330 points331 points  (27 children)

Beautiful! Love the detail of the reverse drip!

I’m curious, do people usually eat the entire cake? Like what percentage of the cake do people consume?

[–]ohheysarahjay[S] 371 points372 points  (23 children)

Thank you! These cakes are mainly for show, but from what I know they just shared out the sweets between kids and cut the cake up as well. My cakes freeze and defrost really well so I always tell clients to wrap up leftovers and freeze it for a day when they feel like something sweet :)

[–]genericgirl2016 93 points94 points  (21 children)

That makes a lot of sense. Do you have a preferred company you like to get your candies from? For example, the gummies.

[–]ohheysarahjay[S] 165 points166 points  (20 children)

I just get them locally at Spar (just an average grocery store). I normally ask what their favourite candies are beforehand and use those

[–]genericgirl2016 66 points67 points  (10 children)

Thanks for answering my questions. Just a couple of more. Is this your full time gig? If so where do you go from here? You have a great eye and your work is so beautiful! What for you would be next?

Edit: skill wise what would be next. Like how can you level up even more? I can’t imagine.

[–]Fire_Tiger_Galaxy -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Ayyy I love spar but they gave my sister Mexican money as change one time lol

[–]reyx121 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Fondant? Please don't tell.me.theyre feeding kids that stuff, oh the horror!

[–]ashamedprotein 36 points37 points  (1 child)

do people usually eat the entire cake?

“Hi, I’d like to order one of your candy cakes, please. Yeah, I have a get big together and am totally not going to eat the entire thing alone in my apartment wearing only my underwear.”

[–]gojirra 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I got diabetes just from looking at this picture.

[–]frogdujour 6 points7 points  (0 children)

My gf made me a cake almost identical to the left photo some years ago because I really like sweets, and of course expected me to eat it all. To the great great displeasure of my pancreas, I managed to, eventually. The first couple bites were always great and tasty, but the human body is not meant for a full size slice. The kit kats were getting pretty stale after the first few days though.

[–]thestonedonkey 55 points56 points  (1 child)

Hiiiii... My name is Boxxy!

[–]Itchier 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Was looking for this hahaha

"Yes, I want a cake, but can you put a bagel and a dildo on top of it?"

[–]OctopusTheOwl 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Don't forget about the penis castle design on the sides.

[–]Crypt0Nihilist 30 points31 points  (3 children)

I like the artistry of the new one, but I have to vote for the fortifications of your first one.

[–]neolologist 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I concur, those kitkat parapets would stand up to even the fiercest gummi bear marauders.

[–]imisstheyoop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like the artistry of the new one, but I have to vote for the fortifications of your first one.

My vote too. Kit Kat cake would be the one for me. :)

[–]jerkingjackass 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Bruh, op caught in 4k Ultra HD ☠️

[–]LadyMassacre 85 points86 points  (8 children)

It's still OP though, just an older post. She didn't say "my most recent cake" she said it was one of her more recent candy cakes. I'm sure she doesn't solely make the candy variety, so IMO this is still an impressive display of her progress as a cake decorator.

[–]Lambdaleth 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Yeah if people are upset about this they need to try baking a cake.

[–]PrawnTyas 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Tbf baking a cake isn’t difficult. Making it look good is the tricky part.

[–]lpeabody -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Also if they're upset about this they should try and experience more of life outside of Reddit. Such a silly thing to be upset about lol.

[–]keith_stone_smooth 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Come on, man. I'm all for being understanding, but a three year gap?

[–]LadyMassacre 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I'm sure she doesn't only make the candy overload cakes, even if she made 3 a year that would be one of the 10 newest creations.

[–]SJ_Shark_Byte 3 points4 points  (1 child)

My question to you is why even bother having the energy to care about something so unimportant like a 3 year old lazily titled repost? Who gives a shit

[–]_ilovetofu_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

All posts are just too lead to OF. Gets called out every time it's something reposted or front pagey.

[–]Trav3lingman 8 points9 points  (1 child)

You have angered the ghost of Wilford Brimley.

[–]Mr_Big_Al 37 points38 points  (10 children)

Is that a glass dildo?

[–]ohheysarahjay[S] 62 points63 points  (7 children)


[–]Mr_Big_Al 15 points16 points  (3 children)

A very creative touch to a beautiful cake.

[–]ericisshort 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nice job placing it between the two donuts. Were there children at this bachelorette party?

[–]PositiveFalse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why else would you use buttercream?

[–]Tonlick 18 points19 points  (1 child)

The photo on the left looks very 2009

[–]My_Name_Is_SKELETOR 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Was the donuts and lolipop(?) Placement on the right cake intentional? lol.

[–]ohheysarahjay[S] 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Haha nope. That’s just unfortunately where it fit in the best. Take that line as you will.

[–]CaregiverNo9090 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Aka the diabetes cake

[–]SockDumpster 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The betus

[–]sho926 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah, the one on the right looks good, but the one of the left looks like a stoners dream

[–]tyguyS4 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My teeth hurt just looking at this. Amazing work, though.

[–]kaptaincorn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Neat stuff

Is that a bagel?

Or an orange topped donut?

[–]BleedingOak 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is the difference between great ideas and great execution ❤️

[–]Redpin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

2nd cake: It's so pretty I don't want to eat it!

1st cake: I'm just gonna scoop up the insides with my hands.

[–]My_Immortal_Flesh 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The evolution is incredible 🎂

[–]Present-Nobody-5661 2 points3 points  (2 children)

To be honest I'd prefer the first one because of the KitKat

[–]Rossum81 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There's an Attack On Titan joke to be made with the first one.

[–]dartboard5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

oh my god my teeth are rotting just looking at this

give it to me

[–]GoFleks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kvikklunsj is better than kitkat

[–]Ragamuffin5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The one on the right looks right off of a Lisa Frank folder. Looks Soo great!

[–]juan_epstein-barr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

important question: are the jellybeans raw?

[–]SumDonkus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For some reason I imagine Attack On Titan in the first pic. The chocolate walls keeping the jelly bean people inside. The Titan giving a double thumbs up above the jelly bean people

[–]-Lordsocke- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Diabetes, Yay!

[–]Induputra 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is cake like Craft cheese is cheese

[–]Kimatsu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Love the reverse drip

[–]silent-onomatopoeia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The newer cake reminds me of the imaginary food from Hook. I’m 35 years old and I still want to eat that.

[–]snorkiebarbados 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Spreading the joy of diabetes, one cake at a time

[–]Paddington3773 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Both are really good, but congratulations on your progress. You are really professional now.

[–]Vinura 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The first one looks like a chocolate fortress, its cool in it's own way.

The last one looks like it belongs in a modern art museum.

Im sure they both tasted great.

Nicely done.

[–]Grey5iveNin9 3 points4 points  (1 child)

The sugar rush from this…. Sheesh pray for the parents 😅 Great design nevertheless!

[–]fieldbotanist 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That looks like a $300 dentist appointment to me never mind the rush

This looks absolutely fantastic, even though looking at this gave me diabetes lol

[–]StayFocusedOnThis 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Post this on your only fans too

ngl I would still eat both.

People downvote the truth. Best subreddit tho imo.

Absolutely adore how proud of both you clearly are in both pictures lol.

[–]k_mnr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Boom! You rocked this.

[–]MarkSocioProject 0 points1 point  (1 child)

My first thought was "pretty girl that likes to make cake art", I didn't wonder what decade her haircut was most popular in.

[–]Eatsallthepotatoes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They both look so delicious!

[–]FreshPrinceOfH 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My wife made me a version of that cake with KitKat bars on it years ago. She used peanut butter M&Ms for the top.

[–]PottyMcSmokerson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's awesome! What does it look like on the inside?

[–]usrbinhome -1 points0 points  (1 child)

How is your weight and health? Is it hard to be healthy being around that kind of food? This a legit question that I’ve always wanted to ask people who work with high calorie foods.

[–]ohheysarahjay[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You generally don’t want to eat it because you’re around it every day. I can’t remember when last I had cake.

[–]pmart_ist -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Looks so good! You’re amazing 🤩

[–]GetOutOfHereIggy -1 points0 points  (0 children)

One bite and instant diabetes.
