Continuing with the faces The monsters faces are continued in this lesson and finished with the very end blue monster. Now Playing 07:52 3. Adding the arms Arms and extra bits are created for the monsters using sugarpaste in each monster’s colour. Remember to do what you’re comfortable with and make the design your own. Fingernails are then created using a tiny ball tool (or back of your paint brush) and then tiny sugarpaste teardrop shapes or balls are glued onto the fingers to create the fingernails! Tip: Change the colour of the fingernails for something more funky! Now Playing 09:18 4. Adding the faces Brenda starts the facial details by rolling out black sugarpaste (as thin as you can!) followed by cutting this out using a number 5 or 6 circular piping tip. This creates some great pupils for the eyes! Using 22 gauge florists wire, antennae can be created then wrapped with sugarpaste or an impression mould can be used to create shapes for the antennae. Tip: Have fun with the expressions! Now Playing 08:47 5. Finishing touches The shading covered in this lesson will transform your cake and make the colours pop! A Petal Crafts Petaldust palette is used for the shading which features plenty of shades of light to dark colours which look extremely eye-catching. Once you’re happy with your shading you can finally attach the footboard of the bed, and your cake is almost done! Tip: Remember to create shading using a darker colour of the same tone, it gives extra depth. The Tutor Brenda Walton Brenda also flew in all the way from the good old US of A.
