Saw some cakes with hand painted hummingbirds on them. Black cherry cake made from scratch. Covered with lemon BC. I made the hummingbird painting by transferring a picture of a hummingbird by the pinprick method onto a piece of rolled out fondant the shape of the cake. I made this 4 days ago. I used cookie cutters to imprint the flowers. I used color gel and vodka and painted in the bird and flowers. I kept the fondant covered. It hardened but was still pliable. After frosting the cake I put a piece of parchment paper on top then placed the fondant picture on top of that. When I cut ithe cake at work tomarro I will remove the fondant picture first and there will be a nice BC frosting on top. Fondant flower border. Everything dusted with pearl dust. Thanks for looking.
