Thought I would start a new discussion and see where it goes! Each time you have a new project be sure to post it to your pictures but also post it here so we all can see your most recent work!
I will start it off with the cake I did for our Grandson's First Birthday cake this weekend. Cookie Monster and Big Bird were a bit big and this is my first attempt at a Wonky cake so there is a lot I need to learn but here it is .... it was a ton of fun!
Lovely cakes - I love wonky cakes, been looking for an excuse to try one!
This is my latest project, for my 15 year old stepson. He's obsessed with Doctor Who so I thought I'd be brave and try a Tardis for him. His only criticism was that the roof didn't look quite right but I knew that anyway so I can live with that! That's the trouble with making something before the rest of the cake is assembled - it looked ok until it was actually sat on top of the cake.
New techniques used: My first time using dowles (was worried it wouldn't take the weight of the roof without help), painting a wood effect (ish!), using rice paper and piping grass.
And I learned that even if you're working from a template you should still expect nothing to fit where it's supposed to!
Jeri that is sooo cute! How did you make your figuriens? My latest was a topsy turvy as well for Mardi gras/50th Birthday. New thing on this was the chocolate mask and feathers. Have not worked with chocolate much.
