I never uploaded photos of this cake except for a group photo, I found them the other day and I noticed that the swirls of the frosting look great and delicious, so I decided to upload it the strawberry cane is pretty meh, it was the first strawberry cake I made and I still have lots of slices because I always make my canes too big I think I'll throw it out and I'll make a new one, I don't really like the way it looks and the slices are a bit too thick for my liking, but I didn't know how to make thin slices back then XD
As for the photo I don't remember when I took it, but at the time I was playing around with the idea of spicing up my photos with different colored backgrounds. This photo is kinda interesting because there's a lot of contrast but I think I've settled with the clean look of light colored backgrounds. I still want to try using more props, but I always forget to take them out because I have the horrible habit of taking photos on the last moment.
My next video tutorial is going to be about making frosting, I've received a few requests for it because some people have been having troubles achieving the right consistency so please don't forget to follow me on YouTube.
Technical stuff: This cake is a pendant, I think it measures around 2.5 cm ~ 1 inch but it would make a great keychain or cellphone charm too. It has a wood core to make it lighter, the frosting and strawberries are all polymer clay handmade by me without the use of molds, premades, bought pieces, etc, 100% me!
These cakes are available in my Storenvy [link] and Etsy [link] or you can just buy them directly from me
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Specially to ^maytel, at least one of this slices is coming your way!
I love these cakes! Last time I made red velvet cake I received feedback telling me that the color is actually darker... so I listened Each slice has pure white frosting, it looks so fluffy each slice includes a tiny red heart, the hearts have a slight color marbling, it's an adorable effect. I'm really happy with the way they turned out, and I think I got the color of red velvet cake perfectly this time I actually decided to make a full cake this time instead of making slice per slice, it saves a bit of time but it requires more dedication to texture them all at once without going insane. But they look so adorable together, so it was worth it
I actually didn't try red velvet cake until a a week ago, we were hanging out with some friends when we passed by a bakery and they had red velvet cupcakes... I asked Oka to buy me one since I had never tried red velvet. I didn't think the flavor was anything special, it was kind of chocolatey, kind of sweet, and kind of meh. I don't know if that's what red velvet cakes are supposed to taste like, but I'm not impressed so far! Red velvet is not a popular flavor here in Mexico and that was actually the first bakery that I've seen selling them, so maybe they were doing them wrong. I will try to find another bakery and give it another chance.
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay by me! No molds or pre-mades were used, 100% handmade one by one with love. The techniques and materials I used were explained in my polymer clay cake tutorial.
I forgot to post these I found the pics the other day and wondered why I never did... a year ago my boyfriend said that I needed a place to display my dollhouse and miniatures, so he built/bought me a lovely sort of bookcase and I made each space a room of my dollhouse (it's a fantastic design, and it saves so much space since it's vertical!). He didn't want my things to get dusty so he also added acrylic doors to it, and this was my contribution to the project, the door handles I glued them to the acrylic doors and they work fantastic and they are so fun to watch XD
I don't remember how I decided what to do for the door handles, I think I just did the stuff I wanted to make at the time lol. So they are a jelly cake roll (my bf's favorite, before I glued it he threatened to eat it if I left it unattended), a chocolate petit four, a jam cookie, a marshmallow, a colorful lollipop and a mint chocolate truffle. My favorite part was the creamy inside of the jelly roll, I love that texture XD TEXTURES I love making textures!
Comments and suggestions are much appreciated these are also available for commission as pendants, charms, earrings, etc.
Se me había olvidado poner estas fotos las encontré el otro día y no me explico por qué jamás lo hice... hace un año mi novio decidió que me hacía falta algo para exhibir mi casa de muñecas y miniaturas, así que compro y construyó una especie de librero y en cada espacio puse una habitación de mi casa de muñecas (es un diseño genial, ahorra mucho espacio por ser vertical). No quería que mis cosas se empolvaran así que le puso puertas de acrílico, y estas manijas fueron mi contribución al project las adherí a las puertas de acrílico y funcionan perfect, y son muy entretenidas de ver XD No recuerdo como decidí que miniaturas hacer, creo que solo hice lo que me dio la gana en el momento. Hice un pastel enrollado con jalea, petit four de chocolate, una galleta de mermelada, un malvavisco, una paleta de colores y trufa de chocolate y menta.
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay and liquid polymer clay for the jam and jelly, no molds were used. The cookie shape was cut with a small cutter. Pastel dust was used to achieve the baked effect. The cake texture and color were made using the same technique I explained in this tutorial: [link] the method I use to making whipped cream is also explained there.
This was a commission I received on Etsy to make a sushi bracelet but with tamago, ebi and miso. For the miso I was asked to do it with cubes of tofu, bits of nori and pieces of green scallion in a deep red bowl painted the color or nori on the outside. Technically the bowls are not on the right scale with the ebi and tamago, but they fit the bracelet better in this size XD on the second photo you can get an idea of how small they are, they are the smallest bowls I've ever made being only about 8 mm wide. This is the reference I was given to work with and I noticed that miso broth comes in a million ways, from clear to opaque and from white to yellow, so it was a bit difficult to decide what to do but I guess there's no way to go wrong
I think the tamago looks too bright and kinda greenish on the first photo I have no idea what went wrong there. The shrimp was painted, I really prefer getting all the colors with polymer clay alone because it's more awesome and lasts longer, but I think it looks really nice this way. The maki beads were of course made using the techniques shown in one of my favorite polymer clay tutorials ever, Sushi Cane Tutorial by the amazing *chat-noir.
Making sushi bracelets such as these is one of my favorite commissions, they're just so much fun to make and even more fun to wear they are not really realistic, but I don't really want to work on making them hyper realistic because they're just for fun
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay, no premades or bought pieces were used. Paint was used for the shrimp and the outside of the bowls. Some pieces were glazed. The bracelet is put together with a elastic translucent cord.
Also sorry I haven't uploaded anything in a while, I just realized it has been weeks
This was a commission I received from a girl that obviously loves rainbows I made rainbow cake cellphone charm, ring and pendant, and a couple of tiny adorable stud earrings, everything with rainbow chips on top for the charm bracelet she asked me to make a variety of foods, so I made (from the top, clockwise): a rainbow ice-cream (the cone is covered by the scoop), a rainbow popsicle, rainbow frosted donut, rainbow chip cookie, rainbow lollipop, and rainbow frosted butter cookie I think I should have offered her a rainbow keychain too, that's the only thing that's missing for a full set!
So many rainbows if anyone is interested in a commission similar to this let me know! everything shown here is available for commission.
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay by me, no molds or whatsoever were used. A tiny heart cutter was used for the heart cookie. Glaze was used to make some parts shiny. This is all colored clay, nothing was painted!
This was a commission for ~FalconFossi and it was really fun and stressing at the same time (you can read her comment about it here [link]) fish is difficult for me and I wanted it to be perfect. She told me that sashimi was her favorite food and wanted me to make a tray with fish and a dragon roll if I could fit it somewhere, but she also left me a lot of creativity freedom to decide what to include and how to organize everything (yay, fun!). Veggies, rice and ginger was okay but no wasabi. She kinda dared me to make the shiny metallic skin of mackerel and I love how it turned out. Salmon and tuna were also in her list of favorites and I thought the colors would work great.
She sent me a lot of references for the plate but I decided to go with this one: [link] I've never made a tray before so I had to figure out a way to make the shape. I took tips from this tutorial by ~lava-tomato when I made the salmon but I think I can still improve. The salmon and mackerel were made using my own technique. The roll was constructed using a similar technique than what's shown on this tutorial by *chat-noir except that with a smaller scale, and the avocado is a simple skinner blend. The cucumber, lemon and raddish/fish cake are canes I made using my own techniques.
She wanted to make a bracelet out of this so she asked me to make holes on the tray, I hope that she'll post photos of the bracelet when it's finished so feel free to check :devfalcon-fossi: out. I was also asked to make everything relatively flat because she was afraid that with her active life-style anything would get caught, so on the second photo you can see that nothing protrudes too much. This took a lot of love, research, time and work, but this is just the type of work I love to do
Technical stuff: All handmade by me with polymer clay without the use of molds, bought pieces or pre-mades. Acrylic paints were used for the black border on the tray, silver mica for the skin of the mackerel and glaze to make the plate look porcelanized and the fish and fruit look moist. The plate is 2.5 cm - 1 inch long, so everything is really small but I don't think you can take that from the photo XD
I'm currently finishing the tutorial to make these cookies, it should be ready tomorrow I hope you'll like it! Edit: It's here! [link]
I took a lot of photos of the mini cookies with several findings that I bought (ebay) and I thought they were adorable, so I put them together like this to show some ideas. I thought they looked great so I decided to post them as a sort of preview to the tutorial, and also to encourage me to finish it by tomorrow since I already wrote I will post it tomorrow and I can't let you all down!
The cookie jar is actually an old photo, and the cookie bowl looks familiar this newer version looks a lot more realistic! I wonder if I should update my avatar...
The cookie bowl is meant as doll house prop, the cookie plate and cookie jar as pendants, the cookie platter can be a pendant or a bracelet, and the cookie tray is a ring the cookie plate and platter would also make great charms or cellphone decorations. They will be available when I re-open my stores and commissions
Technical stuff: The cookies are all handmade with polymer clay by me, no molds or pre-mades were used. The bowl was also made by me using the techniques explained in my polymer clay bowl tutorial. The metal findings were purchased on ebay and the glass jar comes from a local craft store.
These photos came out a bit different from my usual style, a bit more... vintage? I'm lost when it comes to photography, all I did differently was take them late in the evening so I guess it was something to do with the light. Edit: silly me! I also used a different, darker background. What do you guys think, it's a different style which one do you prefer?
This was a commission for ~Rae-Lynn (here's her feedback), she asked me to do lemon dangling earrings and a lemon pie necklace, I was asked to include a dollop of whipped cream on top of the pie with a slice of lemon. I love how the second photo shows the segments I make on the lemon and the translucency, what I don't love so much is the speck of dust that escaped my inspection that's the worst thing about photographing miniatures, all the stray dust is painfully obvious. It was superficial, not part of the clay so it can be brushed off.
Dangling earrings are so much fun to make the funniest thing is that I don't like wearing them, but I love making them
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay, no premades or molds were used, everything was made from scratch by me. The whipped cream is polymer clay too. Metal findings were bought from a local craft store.
Thanks to the awesome =maytel for making a custom shape of my kitty logo
This was a birthday present for my sister, since she was little she has been obsessed with pie... she asks daily if I can bake or buy her pie, when we were little she used to ask for pie in her Christmas letter to Santa, and then she would ask for pie in mine too so for her birthday I made her an apple pie as a ring, and for the first time in a while I went by a few days without receiving a request for pie XD
When I was making the pie I remembered that *fairchildart had a wonderful apple pie tutorial and I used her ideas for the apple slices, but I made the rest more similar to how a real pie is made. I love the way the slices peek through the crust, but I think I would have liked to make the crust a bit more open to show the slices better. Next time I think I also want to try making a border to give it a neater finish. I liked it a lot and my sister liked it even more, so I'm very happy
Este fue un regalo de cumpleaños para mi hermana, desde que era pequeña está obsesionada con el pay... diario me pide que le haga le compre pay, cuando eramos pequeñas ella solía pedirle pay a Santa y luego escribía que quería pay también en mi carta para su cumpleaños le hice un pie de manazana de anillo, y por la primera vez en mucho tiempo pasaron varios días sin que me pidieran pay XD
Cuando hacía este pay me acordé que *fairchildart tiene un maravilloso tutorial de pay y usé sus ideas para hacer las rebanaditas de manazana, aunque el resto lo hice más similar a como se hace un pay de verdad. Me encanta la forma en la que las rebanadas se asoman por la corteza, aunque la próxima vez me gustaría hacer el enrejado más abierto para que se vean mejor. También quiero hacer un borde la próxima vez. Me gustó mucho el resultado y a mi hermana le gustó todavía más, así que soy muy feliz
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay, no molds or premades were used everything was made by me. Pastel dust and glaze were used for the toasty look and shiny wet finish. The ring is adjustable and bought. Photographed on my left index finger.
This was part of the commission I made for ~Unseeing-Oblivion, she told me that her mom's favorite cake is chocolate mousse cake and she asked me to make her a pendant, this is actually the second version of it; after finishing the first cake I made I noticed that since the sides of the cake were mousse they were very smooth, if anything with a couple of holes here and there... but the cake I made looked like it had frosting so after freaking out a bit I decided to remake it, and this was the one I sent her the other cake was given away some months ago.
I also re-made some things that I thought I could improve from the first cake, I made the top decorations a bit more distinct but I made them still look piped, I used whole strawberries instead of halves (because I think they look more delicious) and I got rid of the icing sugar. I know some people like the icing sugar, but I prefer the cleaner look of this version ah and you can barely tell in the photos, but the bottom is slightly darker as if the mousse was sitting on top of a waffer or a cookie.
She told me that they both liked it, so I'm extremely happy ^^
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay, acrylic paints were used for the seeds, and some glaze for the strawberries. No molds, premades or anything similar was used, it's 100% handmade. The findings were bought on my local jewelry supply store. I forgot to measure it, but I think it was around 2.5 cm ~ 1 inch.
