Cake, Icing, fondant, peral dust, icing colors & a really stready hand
What was your inspiration?
This was a request for a little girls birthday who really really wanted a cell phone for her 8th birthday....not sure but this may have been the only one mom & dad would let her have. Not a lot of building on this one so it was a change of pace (and happy for it!) I didn't use any fondant on this, just icing smoothed out to the best of my ability and using a Viva paper towel (the best to use, it's tough and doesn't have a pattern) blotted over the icing to finish smooting out and areas to create the smooth look. Make sure to have confection sugar on hand to sprnkle down first to help keep the towel from sticking (I use a stemer at the end to steam off any surgar - if you are not doing this, you may not way to sprinkle any on the area that will show the sugar)
What are you most proud of?
Over all I liked how it came at all in all.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
When you are not using fondant to cover - be aware f everything in an around the cake when working on it because anything and everyhting will jump out and try to tap the cake just to make a mark...and then they sit back and laugh t you for it...darn elbows and fingers - always getting in my cakes!
