Choose Image & Resize
For a portrait painting, we need to first choose the right inspiration image. In this lesson you will learn what kind of images to look for as an inspiration to work on your portrait painting. Also, not all images are the exact size of your cake. So, you also learn how to resize the image that you have chosen and fit the image in the shape of the cake that you will work on.
Tracing the Image
Once the image has been chosen, you will be taught how to trace the image. You don’t have to be artistic to replicate a portrait. You just need the right technique to work on and that is what you will learn in this lesson.
Shading the Image
Now before moving on to the actual cake, one should get a complete understanding of the different colours and different shades in the chosen painting. To get that understanding, in this lesson you will be taught to learn the different shades and how to shade them on a normal paper using color pencils.
Buttercream Making

Once you have made the pre-preparations with the chosen image, we move on to teaching you how to make the perfect buttercream that will be used to work on the buttercream painting technique.

Coloring the Buttercream
Now coloring the Buttercream can be tricky when it comes to the exact shades that you need to do with respect to your chosen inspiration image. Here in this lesson, you will be taught how to get the rare shades using the regular gel colors that any baker would have.
Buttercream Painting
This is a recorded session, where Subhashini Ramsingh demonstrates live on how to transfer the image on the cake, work on the painting technique and complete making the portrait painting on the cake.
