It’s been a while since the last post >_< Finally I had a proper holidays this summer and got really behind with doll work ^^” now catching up a bit with all that.
If you remember from older posts, I started a collaboration with Charuca, a spanish illustrator, to make dollfie-sized T-shirts with her design which are super kawaii!!
About one month ago I had the chance to finally meet her in person! I enrolled for a cake design course she was organizing in Barcelona. Of course I took the chance to bring Maya-chan with one of the shirts! I had a lot of fun, Charuca is very nice! and I also met other nice girls that love cake design hobby xD

Goodies that we received for enrolling to the course :33 cuuute!!!
On the upper part of the picture, the reference image of the cake we were about to make. It was a cake design course, so we didn’t bake any cakes for this, we just got a plastic foam base (pic below) to mimic the shape of the cake.
To start with: the materials needed, the fondant paste and the color palete to get the correct colors
Now it was our turn, all pieces ready on the table!
Now to start with the Kokeshi doll, we prepared the head using a plastic foam ball because this way it is lighter ( a real cake head would be too heavy!), basically you have to prepare a bit of bondant and roll it during a couple of minutes together with the foam ball, then you get this result :
Aaaaand tadaaaa! ths is the final result!!! Don’t you think it’s too cute to eat? xD
And the final group photo, all girls successfully finished their kokeshi doll cakes! Thanks all for this great Saturday! ^___^
