Black cat sugar sculpture

My first ever sugar sculpture for my friend Tina's big 40th birthday bash... This is her cat, Molly, made out of gum paste, based on a photo shoot of the real Molly posing on a plaid tablecloth with flowers. The plaid rug/tablecloth is also gum paste and the roses are piped buttercream (also my first time making roses).

For the black cat, instead of trying to color the paste black, I sculpted it white, let it dry (completely!) then painted it with a mixture of black icing color and vodka.
