I had a little panic attack two weeks ago. Someone wrote me and asked if I could do Ricky Gervais cake pops. The intended recipient’s favourite comedians – Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, and Karl Pilkington – star in the Ricky Gervais Show, a comedy audio show.
Faces are the most difficult to do. A slight arch of the eyebrow, the shape of the chin,the tilt of the eyes – get it a little off, and the character looks wrong!
Fortunately, the show has an animated version. Phew! A quick search on Google shows that no one has done them before and I could not resist being the first.
I must say, I am quite pleased with the end result. Even more importantly, the client was happy and got the reaction she wanted from the recipient when they arrived on his doorstep on his birthday. Me happy!
Here they are at a slightly different angle…
