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.
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).
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 cake is a two sided handbag cake which I made for a British Sugar Guild demonstration in a couple of weeks. It will be used to demonstrate lots of different techniques and hopefully inspire people to experiment with their own cake designs.
I painted a pattern in the background to give it some depth. Then flowers made of petal paste were attached over this. The same flower cutter was used to emboss the handbag top and it was finished off using a homemade button mould to create the clasp.
The cake was finished off with tiny piped pale pink dots and silver painted to hightlight the finer detail.
Keep a look out for my next update with details of the reverse side it as it is even better than this one.

This cake was for a young ladies 21st Birthday recently.
The number 21 was created out of sugar paste covered with edible lace and accented with small piped dots.
Around the top edge delicate pink pretty flowers were placed and around the sides edible lace and more flowers were added.
