Lizzy really likes the trash can. On this particular day she found, what I thought, was an empty box of cornstarch. I guess it wasn't as empty as I had thought. :)
Here's a picture of what I've been working on.
The mask and rose are both made out of gum paste. The above is not the finished product. I still had to trim the mask a bit, and then I painted them both with shiny paint. (I used my airbrush!) The picture below is the finished product.
Aren't they shiny and pretty? Anyway, the cake is for this Saturday. I still have to figure out the placement of these two objects on the top of the cake. I think that is going to be more challenging than you or I think. Do I leave the mask laying down, or prop it up like in this picture? If I prop it up, how would I do that in a non-conspicuous way? Do you see my dilemma? I'll get it figured out. Anyway, I just had so much fun with these that I had to share them right away! I hope you like them.
