The Cake is a Lie by Talty The Cake is a Lie by Talty
| Etsy | Custom Commissions | YouTube | Polymer Clay Gallery |

You can buy a slice in my Etsy store: [link]

Edit: thank you everyone for letting me know that the Portal cake is a Black Forest Cake. I still like the contrast of this version, but I'm going to make a newer version that is a Black Forest Cake inside :meow: I really appreciate the feedback!

It was bound to happen xD I had to make a Portal Cake one day! And I'm so glad I did, it was so much fun and they look great! :la: As far as I know, you can't see the inside of the cake in the game... but I always imagined it would be a vanilla cake, I like vanilla cake covered in chocolate frosting and it makes a nice contrast. However, I can make them with a chocolate cake on request.

I'm not selling the full cake yet... it needs a bit of tweaking, the candle is too flimsy to be used as jewelry. Until I figure out what to do, I'll only sell the slice of cake xD unless you want the full cake for decoration only. I gave the full cake to =moofestgirl, you can see it in video here: [link]

Anyway, I hope you'll like them! :la: I'm specially proud of the piping, it was so difficult to do that small -.-

Note: I used two different backgrounds and lightnings, so in one the flakes look more yellow and in the other they look redder. Funny how that works ._.

Comments and suggestions are always much appreciated :glomp: and I take commissions too!

I seee :O, may I ask another question?

When you make canes, do you bake them ready right when u make the canes o_o" or do u like bake them part way, so they're a bit solid, but u can cut them when needed?
Reply
:icontalty:
Talty Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012   Artisan Crafter
I do both things, depends on what kind of cane I'm doing and what I'm using it for. Sometimes I also freeze them to use when needed.

:iconmapleaddict:
MapleAddict Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012
so would it be bad, if like the cane is made,cutted into small pieces, baked fully, then used for other clay items that need to be heated?(basically, you're reheating the finished cane pieces again)

I'm so sorry I'm so late to answer, but it's perfectly fine to bake clay more than once. As long as you don't go over the recommended temperature, you can bake clay as many times as you need it :D
