I made this drummer cake for a family member who plays the drums. I got this picture from Clipart. It was actually a girl with orange hair and pig tails that stuck straightup. I took off the pig tails and then it kind of looked like a boy wearing a hat so I moved a couple lines around to really make it look like a baseball hat.
I traced it onto parchment and transferred the image with piping gel. I outlined the whole thing in black and added all the colors. I tried to do a mahogany wood color for the drums but had a tough time with that one. I think the green and yellow shells really made the cake!
At the end I decided to add his name on the front drum so that there wasn’t too much gray. The family loved it, everyone thought it was very cool even though it was just clipart!
