Make a Lemon Flavored Bunt Cake

Posted on

The finished lemon cake is placed on top of a small china plate.

This cake craft was made by Recycling Vintage “JELL-O” gelatin tin mold. I did not prepare it with any special medium before coating the surface. I washed it well

After painting the deck, you may want to seal it with Mod Podge so that it will stand up to regular handling and play.

I used an inexpensive acrylic to paint the caterpillar cake part. Then I used a lemon ice jet paint.

This icing gave a 3D surface with a more glossy finish compared to the surface of the cake underneath.

Blow paint can take up to 24 hours to dry properly and sometimes the surface will warp slightly as it dries. Apply a second coat, after the first one has dried, if you wish the decking to be thicker.

For those of you who are Claudie Wells fans, this 18-inch lemon cake will look adorable displayed inside Angelo’s Bakery! But our family is going to use it for our own version of Doll Bakery instead.

The JELL-O brand bar is from a collection passed down to me from my mother-in-law.
I have another craft made out of the same tin: a pumpkin pot with candies.

Left, is the polished dry tin. I used brown, gold, tan and black polished in layers to create a stroke
cake. True, the cake is “iced” with a lemon yellow glaze.
