Cake painting 2013

Post by Admin on Sun Sep 15, 2013 5:04 am

2013 2013 2013 <div style="text-align: justify;">Before the last LARP event, I decided I was going to decorate a cake for an IC coronation we were planning. The faction I am now part of is big on heraldry, so it was an easy decision to make to create a cake adorned with the heraldic device of the kingdom we were holding the coronation for. Unfortunately, the in game heraldry was not designed particularly well, so I had some pretty tough source material to work from.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IK2JLEPShFo/Ui-BK6AZVuI/AAAAAAAABlg/pGltxli-HV4/s1600/essex.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IK2JLEPShFo/Ui-BK6AZVuI/AAAAAAAABlg/pGltxli-HV4/s320/essex.png" width="239" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">The shield of Essex</td></tr></tbody></table><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I spent ages thinking about the best way to achieve this on a cake. I settled in the end for airbrush food paint, as I thought stencils and using Jamie's airbrush (that we bought for painting 40k models!).</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://distilleryimage6.s3.amazonaws.com/4bc90c7a090311e38a1722000a9f0a0c_7.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://distilleryimage6.s3.amazonaws.com/4bc90c7a090311e38a1722000a9f0a0c_7.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">Our first experiments with the airbrush didn't go so well. The paint transferred onto the icing alright, but I couldn't get crisp edges from my stencils, and the risk of the red and blue bleeding into each other and making a horrendous blackish-purple was too high. In the end, I settled for painting by hand.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://distilleryimage7.s3.amazonaws.com/9afbb624090a11e3929322000a9e0719_7.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://distilleryimage7.s3.amazonaws.com/9afbb624090a11e3929322000a9e0719_7.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I decided to do two cakes, as the only pre-iced cakes I could find were quite small. This Lion is one I found in a Google image search, which co-incidentally turned out to be exactly the same one as the previous Kings had used as their symbol and was all over banners all over the camp! It took a couple of coats of the food paint to get a good clean covering, but it was worth the effort.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://distilleryimage10.s3.amazonaws.com/8dbb3f88091f11e38abf22000a1f9bf5_7.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://distilleryimage10.s3.amazonaws.com/8dbb3f88091f11e38abf22000a1f9bf5_7.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I failed to get a picture of the finished cakes. The Essex cake had "Long Live the Queen" iced around the edge, and the Lion cake said "We Shall Not Falter".</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I was so pleased with how they turned out! And everyone at the event said such nice things about them. I have already started planning my second attempt at cake decoration.</div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://distilleryimage11.s3.amazonaws.com/36219e5c134711e3a74422000a1ddb8e_7.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://distilleryimage11.s3.amazonaws.com/36219e5c134711e3a74422000a1ddb8e_7.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;">I'm going to do a much bigger one this time, with all ten shields on it. Some of them have quite intricate designs, and they will be smaller than the one I made (only 3 inches tall) as they will be adorning the side of the cake rather than the top. I've found a decent sized iced sponge cake on the Waitrose website, which I will be ordering as soon as the date for the banquet is announced!
