Make Up Bag Cake
Recently, I was asked to make a pretty round cake with just a compact and nail polish on it.
You know how sometimes you have a brain freeze? That’s what happen to me with this cake.
When I went to make the make up I did not know where to begin? My brain just wouldn’t work. I tried to search on line to get some ideas. I found lots of beautiful make up cakes but no tutorial.
So I went to my own make up bag. Got some of the stuff out. and started working on it. Made the nail polish, compact… and the next thing you know I had made the whole set…!
It was just so much fun. Lucky I remembered to take pictures for you.
Oh well, so here is the close up of the make up I did.
Gum paste Eye Shadow
This is how I mad the gum paste eye shadow.. the pictures are self explanatory I think?
Here’s the gum paste compact. Quite simple really.
Nail polish.. just hand molded.
You could do any shape you want. I have some this shape so just use that as a guide.
Mascara.. hand molded
three pieces then pushed the cocktail stick into the base and done. I used a pair of scissors to snip the brush.
The blush brush.
I use a knife to make the brush marks. You could use the extruder but I was afraid it would give a broom effect.
Gum Paste Lipstick.
I wanted to make it red. But since the bag was red… use pink.
For the Make Up Bag Cake..
Coated with Buttercream and then covered it with home made fondant.
A strip of grey for the zipper. Used the stitch tool to make the zipper and stitch impression.
Then added red borders to seal the zipper. See the finished cake.
Used an extruder to make the rope borders.
Added more details – Flower design on the front and back. Applied silver luster dust diluted in vodka for the metal effect.
That’s it.. The cake is done.
It’s easy but time consuming.
