I made this Betty Boop cake using a CT. It was super simple.

I have a CT tutorial on that same webshots account.


I just Googled Betty Boop coloring page and picked one.

hi,
I had a betty boop cake to make a while back and so i drew inspiration from a kitagrl cake i found on here... as a total noob i had no idea how to do anything!!
all i did know was that i didn't want to attempt a 3d one, (i can copy drawings but i can't sculpt!!) because unfortunately 98% of the time, 3d figures never look quite right even done by people that have been in the trade for years and years!

so all i did was cut out her shape from gumpaste and left it to dry before filling in the colouring.
the cake was a hit with the birthday girl but i guess it depends on what you are after!!
let me know if you have any questions regarding my solution and i'll be happy to help if i can!
best of luck and be sure to post pics icon_smile.gif
