The Hand-Painted Cake »
InstructionsI used cocoa-butter rather than a gel paste and spirit. I found this easier - perhaps something to do with the gel paste colours we get in the UK.

Handpainted using melted cocoa-butter and petal dusts.
What was your inspiration?
Old Skool Tattoo Art - Wanted to offer something alternative, modern, but still feminine (with the brush embroidery roses and dots)
What are you most proud of?
The handpainting - I was so nervous about trying it until I followed this Craftsy class. Great class!!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Sign up to this class :o)
Try cocoa-butter as well. I personally found this easier to work with as the gel pastes were like painting with chewing gum (but perhaps thats UK products).
