Technique Time - Faux Frosting

I posted this card a few weeks ago and wanted to let you know how I did the frosting on the cupcake.


The Technique is called Faux Frosting and here is how you do it.

Sweetcakefauxfrostingclose*Mix Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with Embossing Powder at a 1 to 1 ratio.  I used White Embossing Powder for my frosting.  If you want less sparkle use a 2 to 1 ratio. Mix it in a small plastic ziplock bag for best results as the glitter will settle at the bottom of a container.
*Stamp your image and carefully apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the area you want to frost.  Use the tip of the glue bottle to create swirls for added texture.
*Sprinkle your powder mixture over the frosted area & tap excess back into the bag.  Use your Heat Tool to set.  When the frosting starts to bubble, stop heating and let the bubbles go down.  Heat again to make sure the adhesive is dry.

I teach Technique Geek Classes each month for my local gals.  If you are not local and would like to learn how to do a variety of techniques ( I have nearly 90 ready to go), click HERE to learn more.

Here is the sample my class attendees made when we learned the Faux Frosting technique.

The Happy Birthday greeting comes from the Bring on the Cake set.  I added some Faux Frosting to the cake so it looks good enough to eat and my Versamarker adds some "color" to my greeting.  Click on the photos to see them larger.
