Intermediate cake decorating course. First lesson.

A sleeping baby.I could have made this type or a sitting up baby tipping talc on itself. This is my effort. I think I made the bottom too big . Making things in scale and proportion can be difficult.I suppose it improves with experience. The skin of face and hands were made from natural marzipan coloured with paprika and pink. They seem to have gone rather shiny,I'm afraid but I couldn't get the picture any better. She is cuddling a little teddy bear. I enjoyed doing the little tufts of hair-quite cute.Our teacher is well-known in the cake decorating world...Karen Davies. She has written some books and produces some very useful moulds. I'm looking forward to next week's lesson.
