11  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.

12  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

13  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.

14  Gold leaf cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: April 23, 2013 02:51:41 PM
This is a similar design to the purple ombre one I just did. I used scrap clay, then covered it with gold leaf, then added the flowers and designs. After baking put the gold metal powder mixed with lacquer to paint the flowers.

15  Tiny purple ombre princess cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: April 14, 2013 02:55:19 PM
This isn't for anyone, I was just messing around making this one cause I found a pic online of a similar cake was in love. For the life of me I can't find the pic now cause it's only on my Ipad. Tongue
Anyways. Making the 4 different shades of "fondant" was awesome. I had fun making a gradient just right. Used a little leaf stamp type thing for the bottom gold designs. Flowers were originally white and I colored them with pastels. Loved how theose turned out at as always. The top dome is a piece of jewelry filigree and I stuck a little ball of clay at the top and painted it and the details with gold lacquer after baking.

17  Another custom tiny cake :) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: March 12, 2013 05:54:54 PM

click for close up

Real cake


Yeah, this one was pretty straight forward. The swirls took the longest. Probably 4-5 hours total. Super tedious and I listened to classical music to get through it. I grabbed some of those spiral looking jewelrl findings at my local bead shop for the pillars, then placed them and shoved the tiers down on top of them. The silver balls are glass microbeads and I stuck some thin wire, painted white, and topped with iridescent microbeads for a pearly look. It maybe comes to just under 3 inches tall. I'm pretty pleased with how clean and even I got it to look this time around. Sometimes no matter how hard I try I always get wonky lopsided tiers.

18  Another collection of things I've been making in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: March 09, 2013 01:49:24 AM
Mostly just been making things in between big projects to keep my skills on check. I mostly watch tv or look around at things in the house and make it small. Grin

19  Tiny pillars on a tiny cake? in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by Rachelslittlethings on: February 28, 2013 07:04:59 PM
So this cake is small. like 2 1/2 inches barely. And I have the clay based decorated and pretty. Now I gotta attach the pillars in between. I tried earring based wrapped in clay but it didn't work, plus I gotta play down 4 bases and push the top tier on it evenly and it just wasn't working, plus I felt like it was gonna break during shipping. Any ideas for the right look to the pillars as well as keeping it sturdy?

here's my cake to get the size idea


and here's the decorated tiers

and here's what I attempted with the earring backs flipped over
