Meat cake? This has been in the back of my mind. Would it be possible to make a “cake” made of meat that actually looks like a real cake? I didn’t think it was possible at all, but this one (although very time-consuming) looks pretty realistic. A wonderful choice for a special occasion celebrating someone who following the Whole30 reset protocol, for example, or who simply prefers not to consume too much sugar.
It came out better than I thought it would, for sure. I baked triple layers of meatloaf, stacked them and frosted the outside with a combo of tomato paste and Japanese sweet potatoes.
I finished off the meat cake’s decoration with rosettes of mashed potatoes. The visual result is very similar to a real cake. In fact, if I saw this meat cake uncut, I’d think it was dessert for sure!Print
