Making a Bas-relief picture.

This picture was made using bas relief technique. Pieces of fondant are cut out and layered over one another to give a raised appearance to the picture.


It takes a bit of time to complete the image, but I think the results are worth it.

The cake was for Bon's 6th Birthday Party.
The character is Rex from Star Wars. He appears in the Clone War series.
Bas relief pictures are built by layering sections, working from the back to the front.
So with Rex, the first place you would start is the black covering under his left leg, remembering that it will need to be larger enough to fold over his leg at the top after you have layed down the white armor on that leg.

May the force be with you!
