Classic Winnie the Pooh cake




Classic Winnie the Pooh cake - So...this is my favorite cake I have done in a long time. Not because I love the end result more than any other, but because I had SO much fun doing it. I drew every character on this cake freehand and it was the most fun I have had drawing in a long time. I love these characters and really enjoyed putting this one together. I think I spent 10 hours on this one, but I honestly loved every minute. Well, maybe not the minute when my mixer died...but every other minute. :) I took a picture of all the plaques before they went on the cake, so I am going to put that here too. :)

Why o why aren't you based in the UK :( Beautiful, just beautiful.

PS I'd also like to know what method you used to draw and colour, please.

Thanks so much you guys! I had no idea this was on cake wrecks. I feel so famous! He he

I used edible food color markers for this cake. I rolled the fondant and let it dry for just a minute and then started drawing. Then I used a sponge and tiny bit of water to move the color around and make it look like watercolors. It was so much fun!

This is such a beautiful cake! It brings tears to my eyes.
I do a lot of hand painting on my cakes, too... I love the look of your watercolor technique. Your work is just gorgeous!

Please be assured you were **Sunday Sweets** in Cake Wrecks, not the other 6 infamous days of the week!

Lovely cake! I had to come over to your blog from there just to see it for myself. Well done! :-D

Just saw this on Cake Wrecks! Absolutely wonderful! I think I live about an hour's drive to Roy and am already considering seeing if I could order this cake for my daugther's first birthday this summer!

This cake is stunning! Would you be bothered if I were to try and replicate it for a baby shower I'm hosting next month? It would match the theme perfectly!

Jen Vesper said...

Thank you all so much! You are all so sweet! Jenny, I just got your email and will respond shortly, and Meghann, I don't mind at all. Good luck! Just be prepared, it took me about 7 hours to draw all those. :)
