This cake is the last of the opera's Albert Herring food-stravaganza, and it happens to be the one that I made. Here is the research image:
|Isn't it darling? You just know that whoever baked it was wearing pearls and a crinoline!|
I started by using the band saw to cut a bevel into my bead foam base, and then cut a hole into the middle of the cake. I then sanded the edges to soften them. Next, I mixed some color into my acrylic caulk, and frosted the cake.
Once the frosting dried, I decorated the cake using items I found in stock; some foam lemon slices that I painted orange and some little silk daisies. Ta-da!
Note: There is actually one other Herring cake, a lovely strawberry number by Keli (of the Sham ala Keli entry.) Unfortunately, I do not have photos of said cake. If I come across any, I will post them!
