1  Miniature Game of Thrones cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: July 07, 2014 01:18:48 AM
I was lucky enough to have worked on the full size cake so crafting this mini was especially fun. I used some of the same decorating techniques I used on the real one.

Tiny vs. real

From Charm City Cakes West Instagram

Dragon. Not as difficult as I imagined. used wire armature and just sculpted gray clay and textured it.  

First time making a castle and I'm very pleased. I found that simply cutting rectangle shapes and rolling them makes a nice clean pillar shape. I'm not quite happy with the lines and texture. I just used black paint and pressed it on with wire. Then pastels to dirty it up.

Painting the metallic parts were my favorite. Just Mona Lisa metal powder mixed with lacquer.

2  My latest miniature cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: June 10, 2014 03:56:17 PM

Very proud of this one. Not necessarily any new techniques but I love how it came together. My favorite bits are the Swarovski crystals and shimmery finish on a few of the tiers.

3  A few recent mini cakes in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: May 23, 2014 09:19:11 PM
Haven't posted here in forever but my mini cake making has been ever so busy.

A few new techniques. I've been using puff paint once baked over ribbon. It creates a cool 3D icing effect. The 2 tier one above I pressed clay into a textured bit of foam for that linen effect then rubbed brown pastels over it.

4  A little Thanksgiving in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: November 30, 2013 05:20:06 PM

I was just messing around on Thanksgiving before actually making real food. Wink Nothing is baked. I just wanted to make a tiny thanksgiving dinner and photograph it. The cranberry sauce is pastel shavings and little bits of red clay. The rolls are cream colored clay shades with yellow, orange and black pastels. The turkey shape took me a while to perfect, then I textured it with sandpaper and a crushed piece of foil. Then dusted it with yellow pastel, orange, red, brown, then black. And I rubbed some olive oil on it for the photo. Mashed potatoes are white clay mixed with yellow and the gravy is brown acrylic paint mixed with Deco gel. The green beans are teensy pieces of green clay mixed in deco gel then I shaved some yellow pastel on top for color.

Plates are from Ebay, the silver platter and utensils are from Hobby Lobby Grin

Hope everyone had a good Turkey day!

5  Tiny pug in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: June 26, 2013 10:44:42 PM
Modeled this while looking at my roomates' pug. He's the perfect model cause he just lays there.

6  Little chocolate mousse wedding cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: June 26, 2013 05:07:43 PM
This is actually the same design as Hilary Duff's wedding cake. Super easy to make this one, no new techniques.

7  Purple French Cake attempt #2 in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: June 02, 2013 01:49:51 AM

I made this same one over a year ago and decided to try it out again given the new pastel flower technique I learned over the last few months. Love how it turned out. I also put it on a ceramic stand I ordered from Thailand. Grin My photographer buddy took this pretty pic.

8  Another mini cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: May 21, 2013 11:12:04 PM
Real on the right. This is one from Charm City cakes west when I visited a few weeks back. Painting the leopard spots was the most rewarding. They came out great. I just used acrylic paint before baking. The blue tier is marbled, the metallic tier with the little leafs could have been a little better now that I look at it. The leaf sizes are off. I couldn't find a candy can ribbon so I drew lines on a strip of paper. The airbrush tier is awesome too. It was white at first then I dusted on bright eyeshadow.

9  Dolce&Gabanna hallo? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Rachelslittlethings on: May 16, 2013 12:15:44 AM

My friend sent me a photo of a Dolce & Gabanna necklace and exclaimed "Omg I love this!" Her birthday is coming up and I thought I can make that. I went to my local bead shop and got 18 inches of chunky gold chain, 3 feet of the gold wire and seed bead link, a few different sized gold and silver coins, then I borrowed several pieces of my roommates'(a fellow crafter) coral and wire wrapped and linked it all together. I wish I could have found some redder coral but it's all I had plus her birthday is tomorrow. Cannot wait to give it to her. Smiley

The real one

Link to D&G one. Ahhh $1,900 and mine cost a total of $32 Cool

BTW I think my new favorite thing is gonna be replicating expensive jewelry. Wink

10  Tiny cake as well as a 'Ace of Cakes' celebrity sighting :) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: May 02, 2013 11:53:15 PM
I was invited to a Charm City Cakes West event through a friend of mine. I made this little cake with the intention of giving it to the owner of the shop, but ended up meeting Katherine from Ace of Cakes. A show I loooooved. And it turns out she was the one who designed the cake, so she definitely needed to have my little cake. Grin Grin Grin

regarding the cake. No new techniques used but I finished it in less than 5 hours which is record timing on my part.
