One of my best friends had a milestone birthday recently, and I wanted to make her something, but when that person is also super crafty, the choice can be more difficult.
What knitter can’t use more stitch markers, right? I thought, why not cake markers, since it’s a memento of her milestone. This also gave me the perfect
excuse reason to go and buy some art clay. I had no idea there were so many options!
I finally chose Sculpey III and Premo!, and followed this video to get the general idea on how to assemble the clay into the shapes I wanted, after sketching out the color and accent options.
This way she gets cake for her big day, but without the calories!
The texture was achieved by picking at the soft clay with the tip of an X-acto knife. I used satin varnish for the yellow cake, and gloss varnish for the pink cake.
I also made a few other shapes – it was too much fun to stop at cake!
