I made this Betty Boop cake for a lady at work. This was for her daughter’s birthday. Her daughter loves Betty Boop and she wanted a small cake to feed three. So, I made this 8×8 cake. Very simple to decorate.
All icing is buttercream recipe. I iced the cake with white buttercream icing. I then free handed this picture of Betty Boop I found on the internet. I outlined with black icing and filled in the picture with different star tips, 14,16, and 18. The black and green part of her eyes I used tip #3 to fill those in. Several icing colors were used.
I tinted her skin with peach icing. Go easy on this color it can get dark quick. It only required a small amount. Her hair,eyebrows, and eyelashes are chocolate buttercream tinted with black coloring (easiest way to get black icing quick without using a ton of coloring).
Her earrings and bracelets are tinted with golden yellow. Her lips and the border of the cake are of course red tinted icing. I used a shell border on the bottom of the cake and a reverse shell border on the top. These both were done with star tip#21. I thought this was cute and quick to decorate
