A Beautiful Cameo

Rebecca Stewart created a beautiful bell cake using a cameo mold.

The setting and “Sisters” cameo were molded from gumpaste and allowed to dry. After drying the setting was dusted with Inca Gold. The cameo was flooded with Black Magic petal dust in an Everclear suspension. I used my airbrush to blow a stream of air to aid in drying. After drying, the cameo was lightly buffed with a soft towel to remove a little more color from the raised surfaces. It was then dusted with Super Pearl (I used my large, fluffy brush that is only used for Super Pearl, and did not add any dust to the brush).

The two pieces were attached with a thin layer of gumpaste and gum glue and steamed.

The bell shaped cake was covered in flesh toned fondant. A choker ribbon was cut from fondant and dusted with Black Magic petal dust. (I just covered a pan for this project.)

Rebecca is a full time school library director with a passion for cake decorating. She has been decorating seriously for the last 5 years, when she discovered gumpaste and fondant, and as a hobbyist for over 30 years. She has albums of her cakes on both Flickr and Facebook.
