very cute little guy!!! Looks like you are doing great!!!
Well he looks adorable!
I would say you are very much on the right track. Precious lion.
very much on the right track. 2 things though, make his eyes smaller and his mouth thinner.
THanks guys! Wish me luck on the rest! LOL!
That's your first attempt at candy clay and 3D? WOW. You are amazing. That really is very cute.
Ha! Thanks snowflake12! I did take dailey's advice, and made the eyes a bit smaller, and the mouth thinner. It's really difficult stuff to work with, and I'm still now sure why I'm using it instead of fondant?? I don't really love fondant, so I guess that's why I chose this to work with. I've done the lion, turtle, and am halfway thru the giraffe. I'll post a pic of them when they're finished...
can't wait to see it!
I hate to be a pain, but I need some more help with the candy clay! I'm wondering if there is a way to add some shine to the finished product? There seem to be spots on the animals that look dried out, almost cracked? Is there a way to fix this without starting over??
There is a product out there called Confectioner's glaze. When I took my chocolate modeling class my instructor told us to use that if we wanted a shine on our pieces. She said it would last forever! My cake shop has it in large containers. There is also a recipe in the recipe section here on CC for "edible varnish". I don't know which product will give it the most shine. HTH.
Thanks Bonnell! I'll give that a try!
Ok, Not sure if anyone wants to see it, but here is the finished cake. I was pretty happy with the critters, although not so much the monkey, which is why it's "hidden" in the back! LOL! Picture didn't really come out right, the colours are kind of dull...Thanks again for the help
Oops, I can't attach the pic, it's too big, and it's not from my camera so I can't edit it....here's the link!
