1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My newest miniature cake on: September 26, 2014 09:51:12 PM


Real cake




An all time favorite of mine. From Olofson Design bakery. No new techniques used except finding that ideal shade of blue ribbon.

First is a replica on Nicole Richie's wedding cake.




Loved this cake the second I saw it. No new techniques really except for the tiers that I angled. I basically just rolled a semi thick piece in my pasta machine and used the straightedge to angle it and form it to give it a slope.
The little figures were killing me. I used a headpin for the canopy holder, then after baking I attached a piece of fabric to the cake. Then did my favorite technique ever- gold powder mixed with glaze.

Next is this quilted pink one that I took from a few different ideas. Custom design for someone.



Btw, I've been posting progress shots and little tutorial videos on Instagram :rachelslittlethings

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.

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.

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.
6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / A little Thanksgiving 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!

Modeled this while looking at my roomates' pug. He's the perfect model cause he just lays there.

This is actually the same design as Hilary Duff's wedding cake. Super easy to make this one, no new techniques.

9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Purple French Cake attempt #2 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.

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.
