marilyn monroe black & white

This cake was totally and completely inspired by Yuma Couture's Lovely marilyn cake, you can check out her cake here www.flickr.com/photos/yuma_couture_cakes/5272224544/in/fa... I was looking for inspiration for a Marilyn cake for my sisters birthday and I came across Jaime's and thought this would be perfect for her. The cake is yellow and it is filled with white chocolate ganache, covered in ganache. I kinda cheated with the fondant, I did a fondant wrap instead of covering it. I tried twice and it ripped both times, this was my first time covering a barrel cake. I was running out of time so I just wrapped it :)

 

The Marilyn is hand painted on, I printed the picture from the internet, tried to transpose it but only got very few lines, It helped with the porportions of the face, but I pretty much had to free hand all of it. thats why her mouth is so big and her face is a little fatter than it should be.
