St.Patrick's Day Cake

Hello polymer clayers! Nice to see you again...

Inspired by the super cute video by The Sugar Geek Show, this year I decided to make a green ombre cake with a rainbow drip to celebrate St.Patrick's Day!

This is of course a super tiny and non edible version as it's made from polymer clay (in case you're new) and cold porcelain.

This is totally new to me, both the green cake and the theme. I've made colourful cakes before - like red velvet, rainbow and unicorn cakes! - and I always wanted to make a St.Patrick's Day cake, so here it is!

If you'd like to sculpt a little luck of the Irish into your life, you will need:

- Polymer clay in white, translucent, dark brown (or black), green, metallic (optional), yellow, red, orange, light blue and purple.

- Liquid polymer clay

- Ceramic tiles to work and bake your polymer clay on

- Water-based gloss varnish

- Bronze and gold mica powder

- Cold porcelain

- PVA glue

- Blades

- Toothbrush

- Craft knife

- Needle tool

- Small cutter

- Small embossing tools

- Small paintbrushes

- Pointy tool/toothpick

- Flat sculpting tool

- Piping nozzle (and disposable piping bag)

- Miniature ceramic plate (optional)

- Acetone
