I am seriously thinking of painting my grandchildren's room (when I get them) in this theme.
Okay, it may freak the little ankle biters out a little, but hey, toughen up.
So here is the cake build- TA-DAAA!
|Rough sketch of idea.|
|Here is the copper armature ready for the rice-krispy treats.|
|Built up figure with rice-krispies and modeling chocolate. The book boards are made of cut/glued foam core board.|
|Airbrushed monster in progress.|
|Modeling his face.|
|Getting there......black royal icing for his shaggy hair. Note the propane torch in the background. Yes, that is how we roll. This kitchen ain't for the faint-hearted.|
|Hannah using fondant to create a "wood" textured table.|
|Carving the cake.|
|Crumb-coated and ready for icing.|
|Fondant added and textured to mimic pages.|
|Almost there....hand-painting the pages.|
|and last touch because I can't stop myself.|
Big Thank You's go out to the ladies at the Longview Library (you know who you are) for asking me to participate. Great fun to make.
And now I have some wedding cakes to deliver.
