Tayahs spa-tastic cake by Dragonsanddaffodils Tayahs spa-tastic cake by Dragonsanddaffodils
For Tayahs 10th birthday

Fab! I was told the theme and allowed to do what I wanted!

:boogie: :boogie: :boogie: :boogie:

So, this is 2 x 10" square chocolate cakes with chocolate fudge cut up into various pieces and buttercreamed

The floor tiling was done by icing the board (around the large cake) and indenting with a royal icing ruler. The cake itself, I used a square cutter and "tiled" the cake.

The beds are individual sponges, iced, then indented to get the patterns

The towels were pieces of icing textured with a piece of non slip matting and folded.

The water is a thin piece of blue icing, textured, then piping gel on top.

The dog was done from one piece (normally, I have body, legs, head, ears etc separately), so was the tiny hamster (on the towels by the figure)

The figure is just about to have her toe nails painted and has cucumber slices on her eyes.

Think thats it

Download to see a very large view

Hope you like it! :D

This is absolutely incredible. All of the small details, especially the dog, and the icing work. I always love cakes like this. :heart: What are the tools you use exactly? I've been wanting to do a different kind of cake for a while.

Thank you! Glad you like it!

You don't really need any special tools to do this, although they do make it slightly easier.

A small sharp, smooth bladed knife
A cocktail stick
A sharpened cone (like a 1/2 cm accross wooden stick you have sharpened in a pencil sharpener)
A straw make 2 cuts a little into the length, so that part of the straw is divided, then cut off the top half, so that you have a u-shape that you can push into your figures to make a smiling mouth

Your fingers are the best tool you need.

If you are interested in cakes and want a modelling tool set, here is a link [link]

And thanks for the list! If I can ever get my butt in gear (lol), I'll try those tools sometime and see what interesting creation I can come up with. :D And thanks for the link, also. I appreciate it very much. :D

Wow, can't believe it's made of cake! If I can buy one, I will just stare at it all day, and not eat it. (well, maybe nibble one of the tiles, :D) It somehow reminds me of those Polly Pocket houses where the water's fake, and you can't do anything with the doll. XD
