I am not a great cook or a great baker. But I did have a friend who had a custom bakery.
She had an order for a large cake and asked if I could help her. The birthday lady had 24 dogs, mostly chihuahuas I think. Well V. called and wanted me to create dogs out of white chocolate.
Have you seen my portfolio... http://www.childrensillustrators.com/illustrator-details/LauraHamor/id=477/
so you can see it could translate to cake!
I gave it a try:
I wasn't the one to airbrush the dogs, but I was happy with their gestures and poses.
The cake was a huge success (and sold for a HUGE price)
(ps. ears were attached after the white chocolate dried.)
The Artist E-pprenticeship is about this too.. about taking what you know here.. and applying it over here and over there.
And if the ACE OF CAKES gives me a call.... I will say YES and be there asap!!
