I am soooo sorry for all this silent, I know I know you were wondering where in the world I was!!! Well, busy!!! tired !!! and sick!!!, but I am back and I am energized and full of great vibe to share with you.
I am pretty sure that this year you have some Frozen request, maybe from one of your sweet cousins, your niece, the girl next door or maybe your own little one, and if you are like me, lazy !!! you are probably wondering how are you going to model those two girls ??? and on that cake request the first word was FIGURINES!!!!
Seriously I am not taking any modeling class just for making Susie's cake!!! Well I should but honestly there is not much time and anyway, Elsa's expression is sooo freaking expressive that my latest Elsa figurine looked like the ugliest pageant girl ever!!!
So, here is one easy and cute and fast option !!! Let's start
Before You start !!!
This Cameo Style figurines are meant to be place on the front of the cake tier. It should be dry and hard before adding it to your cake. I work ahead of time always, so any decoration is ready even a week previous to event. I use round styrofoams on the sizes of the cakes I am making, so I can basically add all decoration to the dummy and I make sure it fits perfectly on the cake once is ready.
Cut an oval (I use graduated one), once cut mark with a smaller one where your figurine will fit in. You need some space to add the scrolls to decorate the cameo. Once is cut, place it on the dummy so it can dry on the same size as your cake will be
Make a ball not bigger than 1 ", flatten it a bit, use your finger to mark the space that separates forehead and cheeks. Use a small ball tool to mark the eyes
Make sure the head fits inside the marked Oval. Use black fondant for the eyes.Add a tiny little ball for the nose. I use a #000 brush for the eyelashes and yes I put it upside down so it is easier to make the eyelashes look curvier. Add the eyebrows. Three white dots for adding some shine. A little pink powder for the cheeks and a heart shaped mouth with a red marker. Set aside and wait until is dry.
Roll 2 little sausages and thin the sides Those will be part of the hair. Make a little ball, about 1/2", flatten it use the same oval cutter you marked the cameo to keep part of the dress inside your mark. add a little skin tone flatten ball for the neck,Use a tool to mark the hair, you can also use a non serrate knife.
Make the upper part of the hair, make sure to keep it really puffy !!! and make a braid. I add the scrolls using this scrolls mold from Wilton
Voila!!! She is ready
