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.

I was asked to create this wonderful 3 tier Birthday cake with a little lady perched on the corner surrounded by the things in life she loves; football and boots, champagne, tanning lotion, lipstick and iPhone.
The middle tier is turned around 90 degrees to give space to sit the lady on and add more interest.
The finished cake is covered in pretty flowers and the handmade figure is covered in a purple petal styled dress.
All the little intricate items sat at the ladies pixie booted feet are all handmade and edible – some hand painted.
Ever wondered how long it takes to make a cake like this – well this took me around 17 hours but it was worth it.
This cake can lend itself to a wedding cake too if a groom was added or even just a flowered cake without the figure.

The lady I designed this cake for has taking up running marathons in the last couple of years so for her 50th birthday she wanted to celebrate it with a special cake.
The handmade running shoe (trainer) was created without any use of moulds – just sculptured from viewing a photo of her actual shoe. The shoe’s pink, grey and white colours are continued around the rest of the cake.
The ‘VW’ stands for Veteran Women running category. Dainty flowers were arranged around the edge to frame the centre piece.
