Watch the Peanuts gang come to life!

Every artist LOVES new toys! I recently treated myself to a new MacBook, and had WAY too much fun making time lapse videos as I hand drew the Peanuts characters for a client's order.  People always want to know, "How did you do that?"  This is how: I cut out the pieces of fondant using 2 cookie cutters and the rest were modified from those cutters or hand-cut.  Next, I have some fun with my edible ink markers drawing in the details and color.

Apologies in advance, this is a LOT about one cake...but I was having so much fun!  I should be frosting the cake at this point, but instead I pulled out my easel and made a video of the assembly too! Time lapse videos make me feel like I'm working so fast!

Thanks for watching! Do you enjoy production videos like this?  I welcome your feedback!
