Tell us about your collaboration

Steam Cakes is an international collaboration bringing together 62 talented cake artists from all around the world to entertain you with their edible art and celebrate International Steampunk Day.

What inspired you to do this theme?

Steampunk is my favourite style, my signature style, and is always hard to use it in common cakes/pieces, so I decided to run a collaboration under this theme just for fun!

Tell us about a few of the pieces that have been made

All the pieces are truly awesome. We can see structure pieces, wedding cakes, busts and even a cake suspended and with light. Cookies also took a part of this collaboration.

How many members were in your collaboration?

62

How did you decide on this group of people?

Some artists had never had the opportunity to participate in a collaboration and as I knew they’d like to be included in one, I invited them. Others I’ve had the pleasure of meeting personally, I follow their work and of course, I could not help but want them in a collaboration managed by me. There are also those that I do not know personally but I follow their work and I thought they would like to participate in the collaboration, so I invited them.

Did anything go wrong during the process?

We were more than 100 artists in the original group but as it happens in all collaborations, some of them gave up for personal and/or business reasons, which I totally understand.

If you were to do it again, what would you do differently?

I would not change too much. The purpose was to have a fun and relaxed collaboration and I think everyone had a very good experience.

If you were to do it again, what would you do differently?

Those who are interested can always contact the collaboration hosts and see if there is any ongoing collaboration they would like to be included in.
