Erin chose this cute sugar paste figurine in a bikini to add to the Beach themed cake her granny was making for her 13th birthday. Using my trusted Saracino modelling paste, I modelled a sugar version of Erin with gorgeous strawberry blonde sugar hair, gorgeous smile and pretty eyes framed with a sprinkling of sun kissed freckles. No beach girl is complete without a colourful towel to sit elegantly on so out came my embossing tools to create the lime green towel for the dainty figurine.
It was brilliant to hear you had such a fun party Erin and thanks Darryn for the photos of the completed cake with the bikini girl figurine.
Last year I entered my first cake competition with this little beach themed cake. Cradlestone Mall were celebrating their first birthday and they hosted among the first year celebrations a cake competition. Entries were open to all bakers and the cakes were judged and then either auctioned or sold off by the slice and all proceeds went to charity. I made this petite Beach Girl Figurine in her lime green bikini top and lacy skirt and placed her on my vanilla sponge cake that was covered in layers of pale cream fondant and blue waved fondant. Beach bronzed sugar crystals were perfect for the sand for her to sit on and sugar paste shells and frangipani flowers completed the fun summer beach theme. I moulded soft blue waves on the board of the cake that gently kissed the bottom of the cake and dotted the waves with tiny white sugar pearls and sugar paste shells.
