I'm seeing polka dots!

This is dark chocolate cake with raspberries -n- cream filling and a nice crumb coat of chocolate buttercream. Covered in fondx. I used super red luster dust on the dark pink polka dots. Tiers are 8" and 6". I made the monogram from floral wire and hot glued the rhinestones to it. I got a e-mail from the bride after her shower saying she loved the cake and the monogram. And she also said she is going to use the monogram as her wedding cake topper. COOL! I was thrilled that she liked it so much.

You are becoming famous with your "babies" which are so lifelike......but, please, could all 1,000 of us see a tutorial????

Hmmmm - It's edible, how simply cannibalistic....... 8O I'm having trouble with the concept of marzipan babies, but great modeling skills though.

I just love this...I keep coming back to look at it. I would love to figure out how to do it. That lady that started marzipan babies is just awesome. I would love to have one. If you decide to share instructions I would love for you to send them to me. I am sure it is very difficult and time consuming as the lady that started all this charges a huge chunk of money just for a 3 inch version out of clay..but they are works of art. :)

I love the bow on this one! Too cute as usual!!! Hope this one gets to the top!! Let you know when I see it!!

I think it is beautiful. I love it as a decoration. I have a problem with it when it is the cake. Just me. Then I think it's creepy but not this one. Very artistic.

I guess it can seem creepy, But if you think of it made of cold porcelin or simply a figurine you can get from the store, it's not as creepy. I don't think it would get eaten, cause the hair is yarn. It's just a decoration :D :D I don't wish to creep anyone out. I just thought it was kinda sweet to have on top of a cake, sort of a favor, I guess. Thanks for all the great comments. I really appreciate it. :wink:

Wow~that is so unique! What was the inspiration? Did the bride give you a invitation or something? Great Work!

I would never have thought to put green on that cake but now that I see it, I think it looks fantastic. Love the monogram as well.

on

The inspiration for the cake was the invite. The hostess' sent me a copy of it and said to add green to it. So, instead of tiny brown dots around the big dots, I did green. I questioned it at first but, it turned out pretty cool. Thanks for the comments. :D
