Red Cardinal

Jun 19th, 2013 by Gemma

Carrying on the nature theme from earlier this week we have this cardinal cake.

Created for a nature photographer we really wanted to make it look like a photograph on top. But partway through I wanted to go a bit further than just having a square of painted fondant, not quite 3D, but perhaps a layered effect.

I sponge painted the “photograph” backround with mottled greens as an out of focus backdrop then painted the cardinal on a separate piece of fondant, positioned so he looked like he was flying out of the photograph, then a branch in the foreground.
