Project Instructions
    Getting Started:
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Oven-Safe Work Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.

Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.

Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 15 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Shape 1/16 bar each of Turquoise, Yellow, and Candy Pink into thick little 3/4” squares. Use a ruler to check your sizing.
Flatten 1/4 bar of White with the Acrylic Clay Roller to a 1/8” thick sheet.
Lay two of the color squares on top of the White clay sheet. Trim around them with the craft knife making two layers of the cake and frosting.
Stack the cake layers up as shown.
Stand the cake right side up. Cut the cake diagonally into two triangles carefully with a craft knife.
Open the triangles up to make two pieces of cake.
Add a piece of the White sheet to the end of each piece of cake.
Add a curly-q of White frosting to the top of the cake slice.
Add a ball of Candy Pink to the top of the curly-q.
Make swirls in the frosting with the tip of a toothpick.
Repeat Steps 9-11 for the second piece of cake.
Bend the end of the eye hook up into a loop. Poke the loop into the slice of cake leaving the eye to extend out through the frosting on the end. Bake following the baking instructions for SculpeyIII®. Add lanyard hooks with a jump ring to each eye pin
