I am finding that coloring MMF with too much color really messes up the consistency of the fondant...anyone know how to color fondant and still keep it really smooth? Anyway...airbrushed the black shoulder but hand painted the face.
Made with pound cake (including the head), and covered in MMF. Airbrushed orange/brown and handpainted black. I was worried for awhile how it was going to look but I am actually happy with it!
One more toothpick drawn cake from years ago...the ladybug in the center is actually a little removable "smash cake" on its own little tiny cake board.
Another toothpick drawing from several years ago...glad I know now there are many other ways to do this!!!!!!
Just thought I'd post a few of my older cakes...this one was done several years ago when I didn't know about transfers, so I drew the design freehand using a toothpick and then filled it in.
This cake evolved out of necessity to cover up mistakes...so the shawl and heart edging conveniently cover boo-boos!
This is hand sculpted from a double layer 12" cake...fondant covered, each scale cut by hand, and then the cake hand painted as I don't quite yet have my airbrush. :-)
This cake looked fine...until I moved it! :-( The arms are just icing and one side fell almost completely off! I fixed it for now but somehow this cake has to travel a whole hour tomorrow and I am just not sure if its going to make it. Its a large cake. The structure is sturdy but the icing is not so durable.
Kermit The Frog
My MMF is too soft for this cake and I had issues getting the fondant applied! I think the final result is ok but the back of the head...well I didn't take a photo of it for a reason! haha. The fondant is kinda messed up back there. Hope the customer does not mind too much!
Christmas Cookie Basket
This is the third time I have made this type of decorated cookie, and the first time I have made it into a basket. Made other cookies but these are the ones that turned out nice enough to give away. The first two attempts at making the glaze I about quit it was so frustrating, but I think I am getting it finally. haha.
Real Barbie using wonder mold plus 8" round, skirt is white buttercream and red is fondant.
First castle I have done...turrets are ice cream cones coated in candy, although the bottoms looked bad so I covered them again with icing "stones". Also dusted with pearl dust.
Baby Shower Lamb
I found the idea on a cute UK site, they make awesome cakes. This one is for a baby shower. All is edible except the ribbon and bells.
Bulldozer with oreo and black licorice treads and a candy shovel and a hard hat smash cake on top.
Oscar The Grouch
12" round with thin fondant sides with silver dust paint...head is 3D egg with pointy side cut off. Fun cake to do!
"a Bad Day"
Hard to see details, but this is my first cake show entry...a baker with a destroyed kitchen dropped her bottom tier of a wedding cake with only an hour before deadline. Something we can all relate to, I'm sure!
Ivory And Gold Ribbons
8" cake with marshmallow fondant decorations and gold "painted" ribbons and shimmer dust on the rest.
Just finished this for my son...had some issues with the fins because I didn't have time to do them right so they aren't all dry and the decorations smudged but I'll know for next time. All but the fins is buttercream.
Christmas Wedding Cake
Wedding cake done out of Wilton book with color variations for Christmas wedding.
One of my first attempts at using fondant....fur is still buttercream, baby's body is marshmallows wrapped in fondant. Used Wilton bear on top of shortened Wonder Mold.
Eeyore cake using two Wilton wonder mold cakes, some sculpting, and then covered in fondant. Black lines done with food pen.
