Cleopatra

Cleopatra is a bust done for the Egypt - Land of Mystery Collaboration. She is 21 inches tall, made of modeling chocolate, fondant, gum paste, edible fabric and sugar pearls. My inspiration and model was Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra in the movie of the same name.

I'm just in awe of your work.   I could never come up with anything close :)   We each have our own talent......you say what I've done you couldn't.

Thank you so much, kakeladi!  No, not even close to what you can do!  I get a zero in piping, so am very lucky I discovered modeling chocolate, lol!

Actually, MBalaska, Cleo's eyes are just painted, no glaze.  This was before I discovered it.  The only things posted with glaze on the eyes is the Drow, which is so small that it is hard to see and Nightwing.  His really show up!
