First, I had to cut out the fondant stable pieces and mold the figurines from fondant icing for the cake. I actually took photos of the process but my camera's SD card got corrupted and all was lost!

All in the family ... what a humble beginning for our Saviour

Thus far is my work. Next step is to bake the cake, cover it in fondant icing and assemble the fondant stable and figurines onto it.
I have never covered a cake with fondant icing before and I dont want my first experience to be a failure. I am going for a course 'Fondant Fun' on Tues, November at Cake Connection, Jaya 1, PJ for this purpose.
Will keep you all posted. See you in Christmas Project Part 2.
