So Meredith texted me last weekend, asking if I would provide some cake pops for her friend's baby shower. Of course I said yes, and of course I complicated the work. Instead of supplying just the pops, I really was itching to make a centerpiece to stick the pops, plus adding decorations with the theme. So she agreed with the idea, and trusted me with the work. After a few sketches, I decided to start molding the face of the Cheshire Cat. I used Fimo polymer clay to mold, starting with the mouth, then face, then the rest of the body.Fimo clay from Michaels. It was a little tricky to make tiny pieces, but with patience I achieved the look I wanted. Also using the same material, I used a rolling pin to open a white piece to make a tablecloth. Then placed little blue squares pieces of the clay and rolled on top to make the pattern effect.
To continue with the Alice theme, I made some of the card soldiers using cardstock paper from Michaels.Fimo polymer clay, then after dried painted with clear nail polish.
I glued everything with a hot glue gun.fondant, cut small circles with a cookie cutter then let them dry for a couple of hours. Then using black gel food coloring and a paintbrush, I made the numbers and the pointer. Then using gold food spray, also with a paintbrush, I painted around the clock.
Finally the day before delivery, I made the cake pops using my wonderful Baby Cakes cake pop maker. Then after dipped in chocolate I attached the clocks, also using melted chocolate.
And the final product came out, just the way I had it in my head. It was more work than I expected, but it made me happy. And Meredith was excited to bring it to her party, which made me even happier.
