For your 1st time I'd paint on a fondant plaque and attach it to your cake. That way if you mess up, it's not a big deal.

Also, if it is on a plaque you can gently take it off and look at it for a while after all your hard work.

I can't draw on paper, but I can draw on cake...I can't paint on paper...I wonder if I can paint on cake. Good luck! It looks like it will be an awesome painting! Remember to post pics of the finished product!

You could do a buttercream transfer. Here is a link below where a dog was done with a buttercream transfer. A plaque would also look nice. This is just another easy option for you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnIR9ayieGQ

Have you looked at the free Craftsy course that's about painting, thats really good to watch because she goes into detail about transfering the design over and the best ways to mix paints etc. http://www.craftsy.com/class/the-hand-painted-cake/180 Good luck, but just a warning, I had real trouble using Sugarflair colours for this for some reason. Oh, and Storm is gorgeous by the way! =]
