Marbled Camera Cake

I am a volunteer mentor with an awesome organization called First Exposures, where we pair mentoring youth with photography (we teach both traditional black & white and color darkroom work, as well as digital photography skills). We meet once a week throughout the school year, and it is really fun! Last week was our very last class of the semester, and we had a potluck to celebrate the end of the year. I brought a dessert, of course, and was very inspired to make a camera-shaped cake. I got a little over-ambitious, and honestly I spent much too long on this cake to be a sane person. But, I did make it, and it looked great! I couldn’t decide between chocolate and vanilla cake, so I combined the two and made a marble cake! Here are some photos of the finished cake, followed by some pictures of the construction. It is based on the Pentax K1000 manual camera, which is the camera that all our darkroom students use.

I made one layer cake and one 8-inch round cake, and then measured an actual Pentax K1000 camera and then cut the cakes to proportionate size (notice the measuring tape on the top right of my cutting board…). Yes, I admit to being neurotic sometimes.
