Very good! :clap:
I would glaze the whipped cream and the strawberry and leave the rest as it is (is the pink coating supposed to be marzipan or icing? Depending on which, I would glaze that too)

I ended up doing the whole thing in a matte glaze, but for the slices that still haven't sold, I could do a glossy on the berry! The pink and white are icing, though, so I think I will leave them matte. I should probably also update my description ^^;

First? First? First? My first was scary. :D Yours is awesome!

Thanks! Talty's tutorial was fabulous, that's why it came out well. (I had the tutorial open on my phone so I could look at it every step of the way!)

Yes, I have to print them out. And since they're so long (not that that's a bad thing) I have to split them up into pieces. :D

You are lying... you are lying!

This can't be your first time :faint: it's so good! My first try was pretty pathetic :giggle: but this is really awesome, and you really made the pipped parts look great :D

About the glazing... I usually only glaze the fruits, so they look moist and delicious. The fondant and bread are opaque, so I think that glazing them makes them look fake. But some people like things shiny so they look more like a jewel, that's up to you.

That's how I feel, too. About only glazing the fruits, I mean. I think it'll look funny if I glaze the whole thing, but someone mentioned that I should for durability. Are they going to, like, die if I don't glaze them? I don't want that! :(
Talty's avatar
My cakes don't die when I don't glaze them. But perhaps you could find a mate glaze if you are worried about the durability :)

That's what I ended up doing. Thank you for all of your help! :)
Talty's avatar
That's great, you are welcome :) I'm glad to help!

Wow, its beautiful for a first attempt. They look very tasty :)

first attempt?:wow::clap:
I think you should glaze them though, for durability.

Unfortunately, I'm a stickler for looks and if I glaze them, they will become shiny and stop looking so good. I could always try spray painting them with a flat glaze, though. Though that might get gunked up in the tiny details... Hm..

I know what you mean, you could always try matte glaze or some brands it's called 'silk.' That way it won't be overly shiny.

This is a absolutely amazing first attempt!! I must try this when I get the right coloured clay!

I ended up using a matte sculpey glaze and it worked out great! However, it needed veeeeeeery thing layers to maintain the look I wanted, especially in the textured bits.
CandySlush's avatar
Yes, those textured parts in clay pieces can be such a pain! You want to put a glaze on for protection but then it might ruin the effect! Glad you got it all worked out in the end :D
