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'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.
This was an amazing commission I loved the idea from the minute I read it. It was really fun to do, complicated due to the small size and lots of details... but really fun just the kind of thing I love to do. These earrings are a combo of my citric and cake dangling earrings, which can be found in my Etsy and Storenvy (links above).
These are Portal Cakes with Lemon Grenades and some regular lemon halves. I copied the Portal Cake from the outside, and since it's supposed to be a Black Forest Cake I added some tiny cherries to the filling. Making the chocolate shavings on the right scale and texturing something so small was a challenge.
The Lemon Grenade was tricky because the pieces needed to be precise and straight to look realistic, otherwise they end up looking too cartoonish. I made my best to look the clay look like rusty metal.
I love how polymer clay can be manipulated to look like a translucent cherry, creamy frosting, delicate chocolate shaves, crumbly cake, though metal, juicy pulp, and citric peel... it's simply magic T_T I only used a bit of paint for the metal effect, the rest is all polymer clay.
Technical stuff: All handmade by me with polymer clay, no molds, bought pieces or premades were used, 100% me the cake was made using the techniques explained in my many cake tutorials (which can be found in my DA and YouTube). Glaze and the tiniest bit of acrylic paints were also used.
I am still very weak at using liquid clay for icing. The portion for the liquid clay and white clay is not right. They turned out too translucent and watery after baked. I intend to do it again next week if I have time.
I've been working on layered cakes this week-end and then fooled around with various cake stands and plates I made to find the right ones. They all needed another colorful touch, so I painted the plates
Hi all! It's been a while =]. Here's an attempt at a breakfast tray.
There was a lot of experimenting in this piece as I haven't made it before. I really like how the sausage came out, at first I thought it'd look the worst since it didn't look like sausage at all while I was making it...*use your imagination* haha...but after applying chalk pastel and glaze, it looked a lot better. Next, I used a different method to make the scrambled eggs, also, since it looked kind of plain with just yellow, I added some herbs to it. I love making pancakes but I hate applying the "syrup". It is always a mess, covers up all my pancake details, the color is sometimes off, and it never stays on the pancakes the way I want rawr...The yogurt came out surprisingly better than I thought it would, it did take me a few tries to get the blueberries the right size though XD. Finally...the coffee...bah...I believe I failed in making the coffee..I looked up pictures of coffee and I can't seem to get the texture/color right...I personally don't actually drink coffee hehe.
Welp, there's my long description . Until next time! Do leave feedback and suggestions below! I love reading your comments
--------------- size: 1:12 materials: polymer clay, resin, plywood, glue, glaze, I bought the plate, bowl, cup and fork (and spoon).
