Jemima by Sarah

Jemima“This one was for my younger daughter’s 2nd birthday.   Icing coloured with carob for hair, citric acid and cabbage water for overalls and egg yolk for shirt. Hoppers sprinkles for eyes.  I sort of traced around my daughter’s Jemima doll (from Playschool) and cut the cake to match as best I could.  I did make the arms and legs a bit fatter so that it would hold its form better.

The sprinkles on Jemima are home made (I must have been crazy!) I used beaten egg white and icing sugar and piped into thin lines, left out to dry overnight. The blue was coloured with cabbage water and bi carb.”
