I made these for a lady at work whose daughter is an aspiring little artist. Her birthday party had a painting theme and I was asked to make a large cake with matching cupcakes. I made some green cupcakes too but the picture wouldn't rotate for some reason.
Overall, I was fairly pleased with the outcome. I have never made such a giant cake before and that was definitely a learning experience. I had to do one side chocolate and one side white and then carve the shape out of both. It took a while to get the shape that I wanted, but I think it came out pretty good. I wanted to do a border that incorporated all of the colors on the cake, but I'm not too pleased with it. It came out a little messy looking. The best thing about the cake though was the paintbrush. It came out exactly how I imagined it and it was actually easier than I thought it would be to make. When I delivered the goods, everyone was pleased, including the birthday girl which is the most important thing!!
