Cupcake Box – The final unveiling!!

Sooner than anticipated, I have finished painting the cupcake box, woohoo! I have yet to varnish it but I couldn’t wait to post it, so here it is and I hope you like it:


I’m still undecided though when it comes to decorating the cake case. I’d quite like to decoupage some cherries on it but I don’t know. Any thoughts are more than welcome! You may have noticed that I opted for a chocolate cake as opposed to a plain sponge. There are two reasons for that; 1. I LOVE chocolate and 2. My colour mixing abilities are somewhat limited so I thought that chocolate colour would be easier!

Completed 3D picture

Well, I painted the 3D picture last night and here it is:

I painted it to resemble verdigris copper and highlighted with a copper rubbing wax. The overall colour was a little darker than I’d hoped but I’m pleased nonetheless! The cupcake box needs a little more painting and I hope to be posting the finished box tomorrow, with luck!
