Kimchi Kawaii Miniature Cake by Talty Kimchi Kawaii Miniature Cake by Talty

| Etsy | Custom Commissions | Facebook | YouTube | Polymer Clay Gallery |



You can see me showing this cake in this video: [link] . This cake was a gift to my friend *kimchikawaii, it represents her two brands Kimchi Kawaii dedicated to cute and funny art, and Frosted Fleur de Lis which is about sweet crafts:



It's the first time I do a two tier cake, it was a bit more complicated than I expected :lol: I tried to decorate it like a real fondant cake, I've been watching too much Ace of Cakes lately :lmao: the Fleur de Lis, her logo, was hand painted by me using tiny brushes. At some point I decided that making the buttercream seashells one by one would kill me, so I ended up making a mold (pretty unusual for me, I don't like molds but it was needed to preserve my sanity). I really liked how it turned out, but I forgot to take size reference photos again :stupidme:

Technical stuff: All made by me with polymer clay, the logo is painted with acrylic paints, also used gold microbeads for accent, and some glaze. The bottom tier has a wood center or it would have been too heavy. The only tools I used were regular razor blades, toothpicks, needles and brushes. Size about 2.5 cm ~ 1 inch wide and 4 cm ~ 1.5 inch tall?

MOAR CAKE

So behind here, but need to say again how much I LOVE my little cake. It's next to the other cakes and makes me happy! If I knew a baker, I would show this to them and say 'Can you make this in real cake?'. I want to have a Frosted Fleur party and this would be awesome for a dessert!

If I get this as a real cake, I'll totally take a pic and show you. *Runs off to find someone who can work in fondant or is really good with frosting.

I keep meaning to try my hand at sculpting a Roary out of either Sculpey or paper clay.

It is in Japanese, it translates to "cute" or "adorable"

Ah, ok. I thought that maybe it had something to do with manga or anime. Which, I am totally sick of lol.

It's a word that is abused in the anime/manga community, sadly :(
