Another friend got married last month and I made a mini of her cake. This one was tough. It's about 1 3/4 inches tall. I tried a new technique to make the tiers more even and flat. I rolled filler clay through my pasta machine at the 9 level, then layered them until it was the right height(4 layers= 1/2 inch) Then I rolled in the white clay and traced the circle part on top then a long strip to wrap around the sides. It worked really well and I'm happy with how even and clean the tiers look. Then I added the swirls, the dots, the M L B emblem, and the "icing" at the base.
The flowers were so intricate and detailed with the colors I just chose base shades of clay then painted them afterwards with acrylic paint.

Before the flowers. The swirls took fooorever. Swirls are my least favorite thing to do. But I'm very pleased at the symmetry and even-ness of the tiers.


quarter for scale

hooray. I'm getting paid for this one. I didn't even make it for money and friend is amazed she said she "can't not pay" me for it. Cool

im very impressed by how straight and even the tiers are especially considering the scale!

did you roll the swirls by hand or did you use an extruder?

Did them by hand, individually, swirled them each. Probably took 3-4 hours total just for the swirls. I hate doing it but they turn out pretty. Smiley
