Materials:  Insulation foam, Acrylic Caulk, Design Master Spray, Acrylic Paint, Hot Glue, Fake Flowers

Here is another  Fake-n-Cake for your enjoyment! This one is for the graduation party scene in Renaissance Theaterwork's upcoming production of ' Crumbs From the Table of Joy '  The show is a memory play, and so certain props are embellished to show their importance in the main character's  memory.  One of these props is her graduation cake, made by the bakery where her father works.

This is another of my standard foam and caulk cakes.  I used Ivory colored Design Master to get the color, and used hot glue to attach fake flowers.  The one misstep was adhering the two tiers together before icing. I should have iced them separately, allowed them to dry, attached them, and then applied the decorative icing.  Ah well, hindsight is 20/20.
