It’s been a very quiet month for me because of two reasons: 1) several cake orders fell through, and 2) I’ve been really bloody ill. Soo, I decided I wanted to make something simple, yet cute, just for the sake of it, because I was starting to feel a bit rusty. (Hehehe.)
The pumpkin cats were inspired by these gorgeous figures, which I sadly cannot afford to buy all of: http://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/83691024/halloween-pumpkin-black-cat-figurine-by?ref=favs_view_2 . Deciding to just directly copy the style was kind of like a warm up exercise – as trying to copy something which is already 3D is always less of a challenge than making a 3D figure from a 2D image -, before making something cooler (and original) next week. (Note: because it’s not my design, and because I respect and admire the artist, it’s not a style I’ll be using for my own gain.)
The inside is a banana flavoured rainbow layer cake, because I decided something sickly and colourful was needed.
The cake stand is actually a candle stick holder I bought from Asda for £3 (as opposed to the £40+ I’d have to spend for an /actual/ cake stand of a similar design), which I stuck to the bottom of a cake board.
