Erin's course - dumy cake.
What was your inspiration?
Erin's course. I took her template and adapted it slightly to match some old English China I have which was owned by my husband's grandmother (adding some embelishments and buds, plus changing the colours).
What are you most proud of?
Happy with first attempt. Would try things a little differently next time.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Fantastic course - and it's free! What's stopping you??
I'm not sure whether gel/paste colours are different in the UK, but mine kept separating - it was like painting with chewing gum. 24 hours later it's still sticky!
I had a quick go using dusts and alcohol and found this much easier.
