Gum-paste Images on Cake Central
This is my contribution to the I Guerrieri Collaboration to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. She is a portrait of a beautiful lady who just completed her third set of treatments for cancer. As of April of last year, she was pronounced cancer free. My sculpture is made of Rice Krispy Treats and modeling chocolate, fondant, gum paste, wafer paper, sugar pearls and edible colors.
Created for the Love Is Collaboration, I wanted to represent passion through flowers. I chose the exotic, tropical blooms of the Bird of Paradise, Bougainvillea and Hibiscus with filler greenery because, for me, they evoke warm summer nights and the sound of ocean waves upon the shore and long evenings with the one you love. Everything is made from gum paste.
Made for the Sweet Easy Collaboration, which introduced the Drageekiss, my Gatsby Bride is made of rice cereal treats and modeling chocolate with accessories of fondant, gum paste, cake lace, wafer paper and tons of sugar pearls.
