This is for the daughter of a friend who is 6 today……I can’t walk but I can still decorate a cake!
The theme was fairies (as you might have guessed from the picture…well I hope you did !!)…..actually fairies had become my nemesis in the cake world really.
The last time I made a fairy cake I found the whole thing quite disappointing – I didn’t like the fairies and I made a fairy toadstool house which I didn’t like either…the little girl who I made it for loved it but the whole thing was a flop in my mind …so much so I don’t think I took a picture of it (if I can find one I will put it up so I remember how my cake decorating has developed (well I’m hopeful) it’s developed).
I’ve learnt so much and I’ve started trying out new things – some of it taken from watching You Tube (you can learn just about anything from there) and I’ve started looking at other things and then seeing how I can apply them to cake decorating…this was from modelling with polymer clay….it came in handy for doing the hair.
I still need to work on limbs (the first set of legs were rather thin and she didn’t look well!!) but she looks a little healthier here….as I said there’s always room for improvement.
The front was filled with Ariel’s name (I got the inspiration for this from a cake I saw on cake central …a site I visit regularly and I’m a member of). I thought it was a bit different and if I’m completely honest it seemed it was going to be relatively easy to do without needing any fancy schmancy equipment ie letter makers etc..none of which I have.
