Checkerboard Neapolitan Cake by eserenitia Checkerboard Neapolitan Cake by eserenitia
Alternate view: [link]

Here's that cake I mentioned before! :la:

I like how the checkerboard effect came out! However, I wish I made the cake more translucent. Looks like I need more translucent clay >.> The texturing could use more work as well. I ran into some problems, which I think can be summed up into this question:

Which do you do first, frost or texture?

The cake slice is a charm, there's an eyepin in the back. Comments and critiques more than welcome!

Materials
Premo! Sculpey polymer clay, Translucent Liquid Sculpey, eyepin

Sorry for the late response! I use circle cutters and alternate colors :3 There are a lot of tutorials on YouTube!

I typically texture it, bake it for just a little bit like ...five or ten minutes, then frost it and bake again.

That's a much better way than what I used! :XD: Baking in between frosting and texturing is super smart (which is why I never thought of it, haha). Thanks for the tip!

hahaha I was planning to do this cake a few weeks ago, now I'll feel like I'm copying you OTL no seriously, you did a great job and I love how it looks :la: I do agree that a bit more translucent clay would have helped.

Oh and I do the texture first :la:

(I didn't just Urban Dictionary OTL or anything)

Thank you so much for your compliments! They mean a lot :meow: There's no need for you to feel that way, almighty polymer clay cake maker! :worship:

And yeah, I always forget that you need more translucent than colored clay for it to come out right. *sigh*
