Gong Xi! Gong Xi! Hmm ... I think I should have made her hair darker?
Mandarin Oranges ... usually associated with good luck. It is exchanged among family & friends to usher in prosperity!
Wealth ... Gold ingot and gold coins.
Firecrackers to usher in the New Year. Umm ... did I get the Chinese character for 'Prosperity' right??
Peach blossoms. Oh dear... my perfectionist self tells me not to include this in the package. Maybe I should send it to Cake Wrecks! Oh well ... back to the drawing board.
And finally (again?),
Tiger ... After all 2010 is the year of the tiger, third sign of the lunar Chinese Horoscope.
Cupcakes comes in standard size (top 2.5 inches diameter) souffle solo cups.
Modeled this fondant girl figurine as a topper for my daughter Rachel's upcoming birthday cake in February. I wanted to personalize the figurine to reflect her character. At first, I wanted to make a girl sitting demurely on the edge of the cake, wearing a pretty pink dress and ballerina pumps, holding a sprig of pretty blossoms ... but on second thoughts, that's not the real Rachel! Rachel is into books, and not flowers. The only flowers you 'll see on her are those embroidered onto her jeans. She's more of a "t-shirt and jeans" girl and I don't think I have ever seen her sitting like a lady....yet. She also loves her hair long and dreads haircuts.
It took me 3 days to complete this model. Reason is that the body has to be left to dry overnight before the head is attached. Then, the head has to be dry before the hair is attached. So here she is, after 8 hours of hard work:
Thanks to my new tool, a clay gun, I was able to make the hair in a jiffy. Actually, Rachel's hair is long , straight and even length but I have given the model a layered cut and twisted the front portion of the hair into ringlets for a neater effect. Thankfully, Rachel liked this hairstyle and commented that it makes her look Japanese.
I 've given the model a pair of pink "Mary Janes", something on my daughter's wish list.
Stay posted for Rachel's cake which I'll be baking and decorating sometime in February. I think I will attempt a two tiered cake, my first!
Happy & Blessed New Year 2010! This is my first cake of the year .. a moist chocolate ganache cake, topped with a fondant plaque of cherry blossoms and butterflies. Made this for a customer who SMSed me that she wanted a cake on January 4th, "suitable for NY, just surprise us with ur choice, x ask anymore, just do". Huh?
Perfectionist, Cake Designer, Sugar Artist, Baker, Also a mommy to two beautiful children. I have a passion for creating beautiful cakes and love beauty in the form of edible "works of art". I love the challenge of creating cakes that will be the highlight of any occasion. I was initially self-taught but have since upgraded my skills by completing the PME (U.K) Professional Diplomas in Sugarpaste, Royal Icing and Sugar Flowers and have been awarded the PME (U.K) Masters Certificate in 2011. I am now a professional cake artist.
I started making simple decorated cakes on order in 2007 and only started getting serious in cake art at the end of 2009. Prior to this, I spent 11 years working in the Banking/IT industry. I decided to be a full time mom after my son was diagnosed with a learning disability in 2005.
Thanks for visiting.
Minimum order for a single tiered, custom designed cake is RM500. I am not a bakery so I do not have any ready made cakes available for sale. I am also unable to cater for last minute commissions i.e. less than 2 weeks notice. This is because each cake is a work of art that requires time and skill to create. Thank you.
