ABOUT MY CAKE
For my work i had a couple of techniques that i wanted to try on this cake… so my search was actually in two directions… i wanted to try one of the techniques tried by Gulnaz Mitchelle in her cake for festival of lights so i searched Sarah Travis Art, Design and Illustration page… and that lead me to search Internet for doodling and coloring pics having angels on them.. my work ended entirely different yet I’ll still include them as my inspirtion. From the beginning this pic was my go for the top tier… i started with coloring water colors and then decided with the flow to incoorporate 3d too hence the flowers and angel hair. Also the background looked plain in white so on the spur of moment i tried airbrushing light blue and green…. for the bottom it had to be red… and i ended up doing mosaic i learned from wilton craftsy class by Valerie Pradhan .. the top tier is where i loved working the most…my piece tries to show colors and the angel of hope emerging from a bloom of colors of nature … the red poppy on top also symbolizes hope of getting to zero in the fight against aids.
