Fancy Fondant Cakes by Talty Fancy Fondant Cakes by Talty
| Etsy | Custom Commissions | YouTube | Polymer Clay Gallery |

Oh wow! Look at that! I made cakes, how unusual! :sarcasm: (sarcasm)

I seriously don't want to be the "girl that only knows how to make cakes", but I always get cake requests from my family and friends. And I also have to admit that I really enjoy making cakes... :XD:

Anyway, I've always admired cake art. I've spent hours looking at beautifully decorated cakes, specially those intricate decorations they make over fondant like these: [link] [link] . I just had to try it, this is what I came up with.

Please let me tell you that I hate these photographs. I HATE THEM. They all came out either too shiny or too dark, and I didn't notice how awful the photos were until all the cakes were spread among my acquaintances, so I had to do the best that I could.

I really liked these cakes, my favorite is the green one :)

Technique and tools as described in my polymer clay cake tutorial: [link]

Wow! The green one looks fantastic! (And I'm not saying that just because I like the color green)

I think with crafts we're not expecting world class photography. Clear photos, yes, but it's a different category from photography. It's the craft that matters :icondragonnod1: Be proud :icondivaplz: :iconstars-plz:

Use a good lightning, I like to take them in a well-lit room. If they're blurry use a tripod :) And don't forget to use the macro feature on your camera so it can focus things that are very close to the lense, it's the one that looks like a flower.
