two mini winter cakes by Ingrid

 Hi there 13arts friends!
Today I have two mini winter cakes in two different styles.
They can be opened so there is some room for a little note or present, 
perfect for the holidays or any other special occasion.
One is painted with the new colors from the store, pastel and chalk dirty pink.
The other is with the new paper collection, Winter Tales.
Which one do you prefer?

My favorite set for creating some texture:
glass filler, fine grit, mika flakes, microspheres and glass beads.

I started this pre-made cardboard mini cake by painting it all with two layers of gesso.
Painted with the new colors, pastel dirty pink and chalk dirty pink.
Made a mix of gesso, modeling paste and some magic powder to imitate some whipped creme.
Added all the glass filler, grit, beads and flakes for the texture.
Some gesso and splash white as a final touch.

Some decorative pink crystals.

Added some purple mika flakes to the flowers.

Love all the textures.

And here is my paper mini cake.
Started this one by decorating the sides with the new paper collection, Winter Tales.
Also the mix of gesso, modeling paste and magic powder to imitate the whipped creme.

Yummy textures!

  1. Ingrid's cakes look good enough to eat - they are absolutely gorgeous - as all of her work. And, now I am hungry!
