Free Hand Painted English High Tea Cake

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It is my first attemt to make hand painted cake. Originally, I was going to use the picture transfer technique that Ive learnt from Hand painting free Craftsy class at the weekend. But after I found that it was difficult to transfer the picture to the my gumpaste cup and saucer and it was much easier just free hand painting, I decided to free hand paint the whole cake. So I did it! Ive never thought that I could do that!!! It took me a while, but I really enjoyed every single minute. It was scary to start, but I did it! I am proud what came out under my brush! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Mix your colours carefully, First try your artistic skills on piece of dry fondant. First try every colour you mixing on piece of dry fondant

how did u make the cup and saucer?
Gulnaz Mitchell answered:
I made from gumpaste. Rolled the gumpaste and put inside the real cup and saucer, Cut excess gumpaste. Let them dry for 3-4 days and then they were ready for paint.
