For my contribution to Children’s classic books collaboration,
I thought to realize a Trompe-l’œil effect for the inside of the house.
I halved a round shape dummy.
I carved one of the two halves, keeping 2-3 cm for the wall.
Using a cutter, I shaped the window and I rounded it up.
I rolled out some brown fondant, same sizes of the floor of the house, and I gave it a wood texture.
I layed it onto the cakeboard I was using as the base of the whole cake.
I cut out some brown fondant and pasted it onto the wall, to give a kind of depth to the wall.
Then I pasted the two halves, with some glue and toothpicks.
I kept on adding details to the wall, following the drawing I made before, to be sure to have a Trompe-l’œil effect. They were 2D, but they looked like they were 3D .
I added a picture of a mountain, painting a little piece of wafer paper and fondant (for the frames)
I added some decorations onto the floor, too.
Finally I added the mini-lights,anchoring them with some push pins.
