Fimo Cupcake Tutorial

Last week it was mu mum's birthday. I made a Fimo Cupcake for her. And I thought I could make my first tutorial on it.

First of all, the material.
Fimo is a polymer clay. It is used for making many things, including jewelry, accessories, and small trinkets. Once shaped, Fimo is baked in a standard or toaster oven for about 30 minutes at 110°C to harden it. Once baked, it can be cut, drilled, painted, sanded, and sliced thinly. (source Wikipedia).

1. First of all I made the base. You have to choose the colour, I chose "peppermint".

I have some cupcakes moulds, so it was easy for me, 'cause I took one of them (they are made of silicone), I flattened the Fimo and I put it into the mould. Like this:

Then you have to make the border flat (I haven't done it -.-). And you can put it into the oven.

2. Meanwhile, you can begin to make the funniest part, de real cupcake with its decorations.
you have to choose the colours again. I chose "lavender".

You have to flatten it, and make a circle, just a littlebit bigger than the base.

Then, you have to take another bit of the same colour, and rool it up, then put it like this on the flat circle that you have just made:

Be sure not to leave any holes ^^, except for that hole on the top, where you will put a cherry.

3. The cherry. I obviously chose red for the cherry, but if you want you can make it of another colour. I made a little ball, just as big as the hole you have left and with a knife i made a little hole, like this:

Then, I took "lime green", made a very thiny roll, and put it into the little hole.

I wanted to add some decorations, so I made little rolls with some different colours, cutted it and put it on the cupcake.

Finally, I put everything in the oven.. (meanwhile, the base had finished his baking time).
And after half an hour..
Here it is!!

I hope you'll enjoy making this little cupcake.. Leave a comment with a link to your blog if you want!

Tomorrow I have a lecture at 8 a.m., maybe I'll have some time to make new thing with Fimo =).
