The kids have been on Chanukah vacations, and you know how much I love to do things with them.
Back to this cake. I was asked to make a pretty round cake with just a compact and nail polish on it.
You know how sometimes you have a brain freeze? That's what happen to me with this cake.
When I went to make the make up I did not know where to begin? My brain just wouldn't work. I tried to search on line to get some ideas. I found lots of beautiful make up cakes but no tutorial.
So I went to my own make up bag. Got some of the stuff out. and started working on it. Made the nail polish, compact... and the next thing you know I had made the whole set...! It was just so much fun. Lucky I remembered to take pictures for you.
Oh well, so here is the close up of the make up I did.
You could do any shape you want. I have some this shape so just use that as a guide.
light and fluffy Vanilla cake.
I needed a 6" cake but I baked it in one single layer 8" cake.
Layered with Vanilla Buttercream. Cut in half and place it cut side down.
home made fondant.
Then added red borders to seal the zipper. See the finished cake.
Added more details - Flower design on the front and back. Applied silver luster dust diluted in vodka for the metal effect.
Thanks for stopping by.
