Rainbow Cupcake Earrings Polymer Clay by Talty Rainbow Cupcake Earrings Polymer Clay by Talty

This was a lovely commission of vanilla cupcakes with rainbow frosting, and I really love the way they turned out :meow: she wanted them as earrings, so I tried to make them cute and realistic at the same time, while also keeping them small and light for comfortable wearing. She told me she wanted them to look like this:… so that's the look I went after. You can see me showing the cupcakes in this video:

Piping multi-colored polymer clay can be quite troublesome because the colors tend to blend and create an ugly brown mush. It reminded me of my childhood and my experiments with Play-Doh, and how many of them turned into an ugly brown disaster. I tried my best to keep the colors clean and bright, and this is how they turned out. I'm quite proud and excited, and I would love to make more! She received them already and told me she really liked them, so it was all worth it :meow:

Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay by me, I used a cupcake mold I made myself but other than that I didn't use other molds or pre-mades. The sprinkles are micro marbles I bought. Things like this are available for commission.

Never done this before but wanted to try it, so please bare with me. :)
Wow. This is amazing. The frosting and cupcakes look so realistic that I just want to take a bite out of one. I can even see the ruffled cupcake cup edges. The frosting looks a little disconnected from the cupcake itself, but it's really not that noticeable, and I don't really know how you would fix that. Not that it really needs fixing. It's fine the way it is. :)
I love the little 'candies' on top. I love how shiny they are!
Overall, marvelous job! :D
Hope this was encouraging and maybe a little helpful? ^_^
P.S. So in awe of how you can make all of these wonderful things with clay!
