Tangled Rapunzel "The Girl With The Golden Hair" & Pascal!

“I’ve been so lucky, I am the girl with golden hair
I wanna sing it out to everybody
What a joy, what a life, what a chance!”

Lyrics from “Thank You For The Music” by ABBA.


This song was playing in my head as I was experimenting with getting a realistic blonde hair effect on sugar for my Rapunzel figurine. The result of my experiment is this golden colored “hair” with different tones of blond highlights. Believe it or not, this technique was inspired by my hairdresser who is very experienced with coloring blond hair.
Made this cake featuring a 3D sugar figurine of “Golden Haired Rapunzel” for 4 year old Eva who loves the character of Rapunzel in the movie “Tangled”. I decided to include a 3D sugar figurine of Pascal, Rapunzel’s pet chameleon after the fans on my Facebook page voted for him to be included. Lol!
To make the cake prettier and to follow the color scheme of Rapunzel’s dress, I decorated the base of the cake with two layers of lavender “scallop lace” fondant ribbon. This was inspired by the pretty fondant ribbon that I saw on White Crafty Cakes’s Minnie Mouse cake on Cakesdecor http://cakesdecor.com/cakes/79250. Thank you so much Toni for sharing how to make this fondant ribbon with me. The cake world is full of lovely people!

On Safari With Alex The Madagascar Lion!

This “Madagascar Lion” cake featuring a 3D sugar art figurine of Alex the Lion was commissioned by Dave for his 6 year old son Avinash's birthday. Since Alex is an alpha lion, I decided to make him in a relaxed and lazing “King of the Beast” pose with half closed dreamy eyes! Don’t know why, but the song “Do ya think I am sexy?” by Rod Steward kept playing in my mind when I see this pose. 

Cake was airbrushed to give it a reddish orange sunset look. I then hand painted a cartoon safari silhouette scenery on the sides to add to the African lion theme.
