|Lovely Oona and her lovely cake. The photos don't do either of them justice.|
Here is the research image that Oona was given:
Once the shaping was done, a coat of Jaxsan (the magic prop goo) was applied to seal the foam and provide a paintable surface. One of our talented props painters (Ilana Kirschbaum, I believe) painted the cake. Once dry, Oona glittered up a few silk violets (mmm sugared flowers) and applied them to the top of the bundt. Et, Voila! Another darling addition to the Albert Herring picnic table.
