I have spent days( I work full time so do an hour or so on a night) making a cake topper for my friends daughters birthday. Late last night I broke one of Frankie,s legs off! So decided to take  her other leg off as she was unbalanced with one, with the intention of repairing her and finishing her off today. So she was looking good by lunchtime if a little leg less. She must have been really unbalanced because when I came back into the kitchen she had fallen over and was in pieces! I almost cried. I've just spent the last 15 minutes removing all her hair, I managed to save her head. Taking 5 mins and just about to start again 

.this was before she fell cant bearbtontake an after photo or I will cry !!

Oh, I am so sorry. Your figures look great, and they have so much detail! You can tell you put a lot of time and heart into them. I'm glad you were able to get a picture before the accident, though.

Thanks, I only make things for friends and family, I could never make a living doing this! I am now rethinking if i should do the figure or at least some of it in modelling chocolate( never used it before) as the fondant even with tylose added doesn't seem to have dried at all, which i think is why it broke!

You can stick it back together with super glue, for all I would care! Nobody is going to eat it, it is not a "sold" cake, and it is a friend's daughter. You'll be there, right? Just say, "Don't eat it!"

 

I would never do that for one of my customers, but I would for my nephew, or child.

 

It is AMAZING!!! The detail is outrageous, and the forming is just too good!

Oh, my heart is just breaking for you! I'm so sorry! You obviously have a lot of talent with making figures. Your friend will love it all the more when she hears your story.

Unfortunately I can't as all the hair had broken and the dress was in too many bits! and i'm not going to be there. Also kids parties aren't really my thing anymore, my daughter is 21 LOL.

 

I managed to save Frankies head so I'm starting again, this time with more internal support so I will be telling them not to eat it anyway.

 

Thanks for the  nice comments it has taken ages, im not looking forward to painting tartan again LOL
