Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I made this cake on cake dummies as I would like to use it for a display in the future for my cake business I am developing slowly. My inspiration came from the Art Deco lessons I took on Craftsy. I also tapped into my lead light skills and looked for patterns in my leadlight pattern books but could not find what I was looking for so used odd shapes to develop my own pattern. The elegant 1930's lady I got my inspiration for from a greeting card but used my own color scheme. This cake won First Prize and the Kumeu Show Cake Decorating section for wedding cakes, so as you can imagine I am thrilled with the 92% out of 100 it was given. Had a lot of fun making this cake.

This is stunning! You did a marvelous job on the lady and the rest of the cake. I love how you went subtle on the panel colours and bold on her outfit!

I made the ladies frame from pastilage and then decorated the details with fondant. For the folds of the dress and shawl I added Tylose to the fondant so that it would hold the folds. I hope this is helpful.

Thanks !!!!! what surprises me is how shiny and smooth is the body of the woman, it seems porcelain !!!!

The woman's clothing has had an application of lustre dust on it to make it shiny.
