Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify

Transmogrify:  turning a cake into a work of art!

Transmogrify: turning a cake into a work of art!

It’s a new term for me, this “transmogrify.”  But learning a new word can be fun, especially if it’s the theme of a weekly photo challenge from WordPress.  Transmogrify means “To change in appearance or form, especially strangely or grotesquely; transform.”  So surely changing a bit of sugar into fondant or buttercream to form something totally different than mere sweetness would qualify, right?

Transmogrify:  To fashion an entire tree with little people from the book Caps for Sale.

Transmogrify:  A bit of sugar transformed into a Dr. Seuss character.

And that’s how it was at Knoxville’s Great Cake Bake where a little “transmogrifying” was the order of the day.  Pretty clever stuff.  And tasty, too!

      Thanks for the compliment on the photography. But the creativity of the cakes is certainly something I can’t take any credit for. I agree — they are wonderful!! Appreciate the comment. — Rusha
