Christmas is coming ……

christmas cakes

This week I had an idea about using hand painting techniques on rice paper and using feathers for Christmas cakes . I put the two ideas together on a spare chocolate cake , to see whether it worked . Although I quite liked how the colour palette worked , I still don’t think its very festive . I liked the way the paint worked on the rice paper but not how the rice paper sat on the cake , so I shall do further work on this concept and see if it develops into something more pleasing to the eye .
