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.
