As lovely as cakes like this are, I've always wondered how good they actually taste. I can't imagine layers of sugar and fondant that thick being very appetizing after more than a bite.

It depends on the fondant and the chocolate and whatever else they're using to create the cake, really. Store-bought fondants are really gross, marshmallow fondant is pretty good. You have to roll out the fondant really thin, so it's not like you get a giant clump of it, usually.I've seen a lot of the major sculptural elements made out of either modeling chocolate, which is like eating a giant piece of chocolate candy, or rice krispy treats -- they hold up well to being modeled, and well...it's a rice krispy treat. They're pretty tasty to most (I don't care for them too much myself, but that's just me). Mostly it depends on what kind of materials you're using for all of it! XD

I guarantee that cake tastes like sawdust :P

Fondant can be a big problem when it comes to taste. Seems like it almost always tastes like icing sugar mixed with old jello. (Yes, I tasted old jello once when I was a kid.) These cakes are absolutely gorgeous, but they are more works of art than food.
