1940s Faux Wedding Cake

Partnership Entertainment Events Limited (PEEL)

After making Audrey puppet for PEEL, they came back and asked whether I could make a World War 2 faux cake for a historical food event at a hotel. I researched what a faux cake looked like during the 1940s and picked out certain features which I thought would be appropriate for this piece. A real piece of fruit cake was to be placed underneath the faux cake. This was mostly made from plastazote, plaster of paris, filler and PVA and other decorative materials which I found in places like the market, haberdashery and fabric stores.
