Rainbow dusts - sugar paste to make the birds and cover the cake
What was your inspiration?
I thought I would try out the Hand painted cake course, and I just love Erin work from Three little Blackbirds so thought I would give it a try. I took some photos in the summer of David Austin roses from my garden. Then I saw a china mug that I use and took inspiration and made the birds out of sugar paste.
It was much quicker then sugar paste flowers - and I enjoyed the whole experience.
What are you most proud of?
Having a go, even if you think your not the best artist - having a go gave me more confidence.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Keep practicing. Draw out your design first and think about where you want your painting to go. Then go and have fun
