Dressed to impress...

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I carved the bodice out of styrafoam and covered with the fondant as I wanted my Goddaughter to be able to keep it. After I covered the body,I found that the tummy was a bit flat so I added some fondant to the front and blended it to make it rounder. Once covered with the bodice, it looks better. The board is covered in fondant and made to look like floorboards. What are you most proud of? The look on my Goddaughters face when I walked in with the cake. My first attempt and I am proud of the way it turned out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Anne's class and you can't go wrong. I had my iPad next to me playing the class while I worked. Just rewound if I needed.

Q&A with Gina Zed

Anne Heap asked:
This is Beautiful! So well done - love your additions of ruffles and flowers !! Thank you for sharing and I love how you explained how you adapted to compensate for the tummy!
Gina Zed answered:
Thank you Anne. I really enjoyed doing this project and thank you for a great class.
fanny fondant asked:
Sooo lovely ! Like the idea of styro bodices, what was the size and shape of styro you started with?
Gina Zed answered:
Hi. Sorry for my late reply. I first reduced the templates to 75% as original would have been to big. I used a 7 inch round styrofoam (cake dummy)to carve the bodice
