The Glenn Beck Show 1st Anniversary

Last Tuesday, The Glenn Beck Show on the Fox News Channel celebrated it's 1st anniversary on the air and called me to make a cake commemorating the occasion.

I didn't know much about Glenn Beck other than what I've seen on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report but the producer that ordered the cake provided me plenty of photos and details to create the perfect cake for the occasion.

The cake was to be a simple blue cake with a sugar figure of Glenn Beck holdi
ng a piece of chalk and standing in front of chalk board with the logo of his 9-12 project.

The chalkboard was a piece of food safe corrugated

cardboard covered with wood grained fondant and painted with food coloring. The logo was printed on an edible frosting sheet and affixed with royal icing. The chalk and eraser were gumpaste and was supported by two wooden food safe dowels.

The G
lenn Beck figurine was sculpted entirely of gum paste. The suit jacket with the jeans and converse were specifically requested. I used a photo to sculpt his face and I was quite happy with the results. My office manager said it was one of the best sugar people she'd seen.

The cake was a big hit, with his staff at least; I never actually met Glenn Beck. Every one I did meet loved the cake and remarked on its authenticity. His staff was a pleasure to work with and the cake was a lot of fun to make.

see how excited I was to be delivering a cake to The Glenn Beck Show on the Fox News Channel
