Probably you will not believe me but actually I did this cake for a 20th birthday party!. The cake is very simple because I only had to bake it in a heart shaped cake tin, put it on a heart shaped cake board and then cover it with white sugarpaste and put a red sugarpaste heart in the middle.
I found this red ribbon with HAPPY BIRTHDAY written all over it and put it all around the cake to add a bit of glamour. However doing Betty Boop out of modelling paste was a bit hard because she has so many tiny pieces that you must arm yourself with a good dose of patience before starting to do it.
First you must model the dress with some black sugarpaste, then her legs and arms with flesh coloured sugarpaste and of course her head too. I pinched the upper part of her head upwards in order to form the hair and then paint it with some black edible colour.
I glued my Betty Boop figure on a piece of heart shaped carton so that when when the cake will be served, she will still have her Betty Boop which she can hang in her room.
I made this Betty Boop Masquerade Birthday Cake for a friend's daughter's 16th birthday. She absolutely loves Betty Boop and had a masquerade ball for her party. The cake was made out of white chocolate mud cake with white chocolate ganache. Betty was made from modelling chocolate and gumpaste and the masks were made from gumpaste with edible glitter.
I didn't want to cover Betty's face with a mask so to tie her in with the theme she has a little black mask near her hand. I loved how the bow turned out. I used cotton balls to make the bow and some of the cotton stuck. I managed to get it all out but next time will try wadding.

I made this Betty Boop Birthday Cake for my daughter's 14 birthday. It was a big cake but we had a lot of people over to celebrate.
Instead of rolling the fondant with the coloring (because it would make the fondant a pink color), I painted on the fondant with the red coloring to make it a bright red. The silver beads were edible. I'm not sure what they are called but I got them at a cake supply store.
The little dolls and balloons are easy to find at party city. The big ceramic doll was borrowed.
P.S if you want to do a big cake like this one or any other big cake start early.
