I had the pleasure of creating a showpiece for Leviosa's First Magical Ball! The owners and production team were a dream to work with and allowed me complete artistic freedom to create.
There is so much to look at on this just 1 inch shy of three feet gorgeousness! Everything except the map & topper are hand-painted, no airbrushing! Please look through the album for more details.
The cake was so great it apparated for a while. When it returned it was a bit splinched and its wand was gone. But a weekend at St. Mitchie's for Maladies and Injuries did the trick!
And thank you to my sponsors for their amazing products!
Magic Colours Icing Images Dream Fondant Simi Cakes & Confections
* Topper is a logo created by http://geijvontaen.deviantart.com/art/Hogwarts-Crest-373131825 I printed it onto an icing sheet and encased in Simi Cakes & Confections clear isomalt tiles.
* Dumbledore's Pensieve is my favorite part. The floating "memory" is wafer paper. The bowl is solid chocolate sponged with gel colors by Magic Colours. I illuminated the interior with a food safe light. The wand was created with Dream Fondant.
* The book tier is my favorite too! I used my Sugar Shapers by Innovative Sugarworks to randomly create different styles of books then color washed them with various gel colors by Magic Colours The " Leviosa " is hand-painted. I only had one shot to mimic their logo! The quotes are hand-painted with Wedding Gold by TheSugarArt.com
* Hand-painting done by memory, so it's not concise but from my imagination instead. The sunset landscape is all done by hand too, the brush strokes really give it movement. The "black lake" was created with blue, black, and clear #DECOgel by Icing Images The 3D mountainscape is Dream Fondant.
