Black Forest Cake by ~fairchildart. The number of people who suggested this artist is staggering and browsing through her gallery, it's easy to see why because she is a very skilled and prolific polymer clay artist who not only makes faux food items, but also in a very tiny 1:12 scale. Click on fullview to see the crumbly texture of the cake, the smoothness of the whipped cream, the flakes of chocolate, and the shiny maraschino cherries, but remember, it's all fake!

It is indeed clay :D  I use very similar techniques as Talty shows in her tutorials here: talty.deviantart.com/art/FTF-9…

This is very well done. The way you textured the cake is amazing. It seriously looks real.

Portal references aside, this is a beautiful cake. The inside looks like somebody actually sliced it, the actual cake itself crumbling. The cherries look realistically juicy, and I can almost smell the sugary frosting. Great job!

Hello there i was wandering what materials do u use to make all this stuff? You have really sparked my interest in learning how to make things like this. Your work is better than what ive seen in stores and I'd love to hear back from you. Can't wait. Also what do you use on the silverware, pots, pans, mainly things that made of plastics and metals??

All of the food is crafted from FIMO and Sculpey brands of polymer clay, the accessories I purchase online (from ebay mostly) :)

I do wish I could make my own plates, glasses and things of that nature! Thank you so much ^_^
