Tinkerbell 3D Cake by ginas-cakes Tinkerbell 3D Cake by ginas-cakes
This is the finished 13 inch tall 3D Tink cake. She looks a bit.......well I don't know, but it was due to not haveing the flash on so she has a few dark spots on her face.

The wings are 22 x 20cm costume ones I got online as I didn't want to risk icing ones on a long drive.

..I'll feel alot better tonight when it's picked up.....and then can have at least one day off tomorrow......well kinda...:P

Hi....and thankyou :)

.....I think I used 6 inch tins. I was after the height more than width for Tink.

 

You'll have to let me know how it works out for you and maybe send a link :aww:

Awesome thank you!! Ignore my post from today asking the same question.

Also when you covered in fondant did u cover from the top or wrap around from the front to the back covering the body only, then covered the head separately?

I covered a section at a time (arm, then legs etc) and wrapped from the front to the back so all the mess was at the back. I

left it for a day before carrying on with the next stages.

Ok shes fairly stable. I didnt do my recipe in order to save money I just did plain cake box with water eggs and oil. Dryer aand cheaper.

Put in fridge til next day and that a huge diff when carving. Then after 3 layers I dowel rodded with 3 dowels and put a board in there. I guestimated the shape and size of the board. After that i put my other 2 layers on. Once I started sculpting I ended up having to cut the board back a little because it was poking out. Cake is 10 times sturdier than my last 2 attempts.  After carving and icing I put it in the fridge. I will finish it when Iget back in town. Once its completely done I dont kow if I will put the middle rod in or not. There's just a little movement where the head is and thats the only reason I would need one if I ever traveled with doing it this way.

beautiful work, but I see a one pretty big mistake - why her eyes aren't convex? Everything should be 3d made :)
however it's really, really wonderful, so tiny and cute!

Thankyou very much for your comment :)

.....and unfortunately, it was such a hot day, that the icing on her face was sagging, so there was not
much I could do about her eyes. As for tiny...well she stood about 13 inches tall :lol: [link]

Thankyou...I ordered them before doing the cake...I don't know what I would have done if they would have been too big.
Thankfully they were just the right size.

I know the feeling. Especially when working to a deadline I hate the cake by the end haha. By the end I'm always picking out the flaws, and everyone else is rolling their eyes at me for being 'too much of a perfectionist'. They can't see what we see cause they haven't spent days staring at it, which at least is comforting!

:phew:....I'm glad someone else is like me. I think there are only 5 cakes I've ever made that I have been entirely happy with. I get the same response too for everyone else....so I have a gripe in my head so as not to seem unappreciative. I think I set my bar too high before I even start a cake, and if it's not like the image in my head, or exacltly like the picture, then I think I've failed.

....still...it keeps the motivation and imagination going towards the next one....:)....and as long as the recipient is happy with it, that's the main thing.

Haha, we're so alike. I'm the same with having that picture and building up the expectations so high, and inevitably mine never looks like the picture in my head. I often have people tell me I'm silly for not being happy with them. When my sister bypasses the kitchen when I'm making something she often says sarcastically, "So what do you hate about this one?" But I figure if I'm not noticing faults, if I'm not striving for perfection, I'm not going to improve. As long as everyone else likes it, we can improve by being grumpy with them haha.

Very true.....it's certainly the way I've tried my best to improve.

...you air-brush don't you? Do you dilute colouring paste, or is there a certain colouring I need to buy?
Reply
:iconcakecrumbs:
cakecrumbs Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2012
Nope, not me. Would love to be able to but that's not in my arsenal at this point. My impression is that you need to buy air brush colouring, which I think is just liquid food colouring. Not sure if you can dilute it sorry. I don't know anyone who air brushes to check for you.

ginas-cakes Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Oh....that's ok. I'm just starting to look into it, and thought you air-brushed the eyes and bits on the mask cake that's now your icon. I'll have to ask around....or get on-line to have a look. I know gold and silver sprays on lovely, but haven't got a clue about colour. Thankyou anyway...:)

Thankyou very much. She did suck the energy out of me this week. I did make her so she didn't have a join anywhere, but didn't think anyone would want to see a picture of her back.....:)
