I'm making this cake for a hair salon & can't figure out what I should do to the top of it, since it's really plain looking just white. I don't want to get into anything too extensive to do. Help please!!

I would google hair dryers, images, and see what I could find, that I could add to this one, it needs something, there are hundreds of photos on google.

That's a great hair dryer. If it needs anything, it's the big round vent thingy on the side, and some switches. Just look at a hair dryer.

This would be a good picture to go from:


so, i would add black lines to the round part (where the fan would be) and then to the end where the air comes out. I would also add somekind of button (on/off)

i see where the switches are now, so never mind the part about a button!

Easy fix! Look closely at your own dryer. It has a round vent area, on/off switches, lines separating parts on the dryer, cord (can't remember if you already have a cord).

The vent could be made by imprinting a circle and some cris-crossed lines going across the circle. You could outline with #5 tip using black b/c or black gel. Same for the line. The switch area could be a small rectangle with two different colored dots (on off buttons).

Great job on the cake. It just needs a little detail to make it pop.

Tuck the edges under with a boning tool or something, to make it look less rigid, and just cut out of cake, more like it was carved. icon_smile.gif
