The cake is a sponge cake with butter-cream and strawberry jam... 8 inch round
I do enjoy getting the opportunity to try new cake toppers in sugar. The guitar was a fun challenge. How to do the strings??? He plays an eight string guitar... I new I wasn't fitting eight strings on, but not to worry they got there in one piece! Something I was worried about with such fine icing..Phew !! ha,ha
My friend told me one of Neil Young's well known songs is 'Harvest Moon'.. I thought music sheets with the album logo and music notes would be a good idea. The logo and music is hand painted (with a new fine paintbrush which is now my favourite thing!)
I finished the cake off with a few quirky music notes on the side.... I was working at 11.00pm at night doing the last touches... so its a good thing I had planned quirky twisty music than straight lines! ;)
NEWSFLASH... Coming Soon
I do enjoy making cake toppers in sugar, where people can keep them for a while which many people do... Although I always thought it a shame they eventually have to be eaten... and a lot of people have mentioned they would like the topper to keep forever.
SO I have been working with a new media POLYMER CLAY . Now I can create Cake Toppers for people to keep. At the moment this is in the early stages but this is something I am hoping to develop and offer for sale here on the blog or Etsy.
Where I can create Cake Toppers for sale and provide requests. This is an exciting new venture for me and I will keep you updated!
See you again soon
