KMR Make-Up Academy Vanity

I just got back from dropping it off with Kristi Ryan, the make-up artist, teacher, and owner of KMR Make-Up Academy, which is now open!

This cake has been... a bit more than I knew it would be. It didn't end up like I thought it would, but I think I'm happy with the results. Krstie was very excited about it, and that's the thrill about cake making.

I learned so much from this cake. I feel like I should blog about it all, but really, for now, I'm going to sit here with a big beer while Des naps and stare at the TV for a while. I'm exhausted. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you Brandy for helping me get it there :)

Here are some photos.

This cake is 24" x 16" in the vanity, and 10" diameter in the chair.
The Chair is a white cake with lemon butter cream and MM fondant.
The Vanity is white cake with butter cream and fresh sliced strawberries, all under MM fondant.
The mirror is a combo of poured sugar and gum paste.
The accessories are all gum paste.
The cake stands are wooden bases covered and styled with gum paste.

And here is my original planning design. Mad Photoshop skills here.
