Ballerina cake

This is the second ballerina cake I have been asked to make. I decided to use a petal shaped drum board this time and think it complements the shape of the dress much more than a plain circular board. I still need to practice modeling hands but I prefer the face on this one.When I was making her shawl I rolled the icing using a silk textured rolling pin then dusted it with white satin powder.
Her ballet shoes were painted on with Raspberry shimmer powder and the straps I made from thinly rolled out strings of icing.
Next week I am going to make an original pig-themed cake for my son's 9th birthday, so watch this space...
