This cake had lots of texture and hand painting. The tree bark started out a light brown and I added texture and painted in the grooves with gel food color. It really brought out the texture. I also painted most of the bugs, the frogs and the snake with gel food color. It made them look so realistic.
A little "paint" made these cute little dart frogs look deadly! And that bug...I don't even know what kind of bug that is, but the dark shading made his "shell" look hard and shiny. Hard to believe all of this was created out of marshmallows and sugar.
I hope you loved this one as much as I do. Even if you don't like creepy crawly things, I hope you could appreciate the amount of detail in each little critter! Let me know your thoughts!!!
