Orange Cake Earrings Size Ref by Talty Orange Cake Earrings Size Ref by Talty
| Etsy | Custom Commissions | YouTube | Polymer Clay Gallery |

It was recently brought to my attention that it's difficult to tell just how small everything is in my orange cake earrings. So I took this photo with a penny as size reference. You can now see how small that cake is!

I don't usually take size reference photos, so I wasn't sure how to do it xD and I don't know if it's interesting. Should I keep doing it? I'm accepting suggestions!

The earrings:

How did you do the grated orange peel?
And how did you start doing artisan crafts?

Oh my goodness, that's wonderful! I love how you used a filling, not just white frosting, and the fact you've mixed some extra colors into the cake's body. And the derails are wonderful!

Thank you so much! I'm glad you noticed the details, they took a lot of time and sometimes it frustrates me when no one notices them xD anyway, yay thanks for your comment! :la:

Welcome! I think that everyone notices the details, though. We just aren't very good at articulating or explaining ourselves. Which is kind of sad, because the artist deserves to know.

If anything, people notice when the details AREN'T there, too. That's when they comment.

Back to the point. I love this piece and it's very well-done.

I like the size reference photo! I think it's hard to believe that your cakes are so small cause you pack so much detail into them. Am amazed!
