DeviantART Birthday Cake 2009 by DarkFireRaven DeviantART Birthday Cake 2009 by DarkFireRaven
Happy Birthday DeviantART!

This be my cake for the contest. ^_^ It has two tiers, and I rolled the fondant to match the colors of the website. Fella's head is at the top, and there are nine emotes, one for each year of DeviantART. They are, from top to bottom(right panel):

:aww:
:)
:la:
:love:
:rofl:
:dance:
:D
=p
;p

I put the DA logo at the bottom of the cake. I wanted to write 'Happy Birthday' or something on it but didn't want it to ruin the cake or be too much, and I didn't want it too cliche.

I'm not thrilled with the lighting, but it was overcast and I haven't had the time to get my lightbox up yet. But I got struck by inspiration yesterday and I wanted to get it done before I left for San Jose. I love work. :XD:

Polymer clay with acrylic paint detail, polycrylic gloss to protect it and make it shiny. :D

Is it fondant or clay?

Polymer clay, but I rolled the 'frosting' out like a fondant because it covers better than working with the liquid sculpey. :)

That is lovely! Fabulous design! I love the details and the symbolism! :D Polymer clay and paint though? I s`pose that doesn´t make it very edible? :P

It took a lot of practice to get where I am with the clay, trust me. :) It can be kind of intimidating but you just have to jump and and do it. ^_^

Y'know what? I wish I knew what fondant tastes like! I had a chance to get some, but I didn't have my money with me! ^^; I've seen it used on Food Network and stuff, but I've never had it on a cake before!
