Thank you so much! The strawberrry shortcake girl took a long time as I wanted it to look perfect....... It's made with cutout gumpaste. I used an image I found on the web, printed it the size I wanted, found it coloring page style with lines only, and transfered all the lines onto the gumpaste shape using a technique I found, which consists in cutting the every single part of the illustration working my way from the outside to the inside.... I would trace the new line on the shape for every piece I was cutting out.. I don't know if you understand, it's not easy to explain. Then I colored/painted it following my lines, using edible powder used for painting. This is strawberry shortcake girl #4, as many things happened to the previous attempts.... lol.
