My latest mini cake. About 2 1/2 inches high. Gonna give this one to a friend for her birthday. Her name starts with a "K". Totally not my design. I saw the cake below and switched the colors and flower design a bit. Her favorite colors are seafoam green and pink.
A few new techniques used on this. I did a spackling technique with liquid polymer and bits of clay mixed to match the seafoam shade. Then I spread it on and "paved" it I guess to make it smooth an even. Sometimes the tiers and bases need some perfecting and when I try to rub it the tiers get all lumpy and uneven. There's actually a crack on the back between tier 3 and 4 that I tried to spackle and when baking the crack ended up showing through
And making that gathered ribbon effect didn't turn out quite as I wanted. I used a rubber Kemper tool I had from my special effects makeup class to get the little lines.
This is also my first time trying out Pluffy clay by Sculpey. I heard it's great for flowers since it's so lightweight. It's really awesome and instead of baking the flowers and painting them afterwards with acrylic, I just dusted the tips or the entire flower with chalk pastels. I did a variety and pink, pink orange, pink purple, and green yellow for the leaves. Such an awesome effect and it looks to realistic and gives them that multidimensional gradient effect.
