Well I am back. It’s a while since I posted anything on my website.

So it’s sunny outside and I think I may go out in the garden and mow my lawn so this will be a small blog.

I just thought I would have a go at making a rag doll that would be perfect for a little girls birthday cake. It’s around 5 inches in height and took around 4 hours to create.

Rag doll cake topper suitable for a little girls cake

Designed and created by Copper Top Cakes

This cute little rag doll is made entirely of modelling paste. I first started with the legs then attached the feet. Putting a stitch effect around the booties to emphasize that is a rag doll made of fabric.

I used a lollipop stick to hold the body to the top of the legs and hold the body up straight.

Using embossed rolling pins I then dressed the model body with a pretty skirt and worked upwards towards the shoulders.

Just getting the basics down, I moved on to the arms and hands with more stitching embossing using another lollipop stick to hold the arm up (I had to prop this up for 24hrs to dry and hold).

Ideal for birthday cakes

Making the face was fun and enjoyable – just to see what I could do – I surfed the net to get an idea of what rag doll faces were attractive and put my own stamp on it.

All the pretty flowers, dots and detailing were the last job of the day.

I also am thinking of making a little boy rag dog in blue to match at some stage.

I will always endeavour to reply to your enquiry within 48 hours. If you have not heard from me in that time it suggests that there is an error with my mailbox or server which I am currently unaware of and I would therefore ask that you try to contact me by phone or text. Thank you.

This 90th birthday cake was created for a man who used to be a captain of a Maersk tanker before he retired.

The Maersk tanker is in 3D relief so that it is deeper at the front than the back. The blue background makes the red tanker zing and stand out more.

This is a characterised version of Bas in his captains outfit that he wore everyday on this job.

The tanker has intricate piped detail to reflect the pipes and tanks on deck and the whole cake is finished off with a red and blue rope effect border.
