I’ve been wanting to try making gum paste flowers for quite some time but have been a little unsure of it. I purchased the basic tools such as a flower modelling tool set (including ball tool and veining tool), a few petal cutters, I used a piece of foam i had here for my foam pad and I used a couple of small plastic containers to hold my flowers until they had set. I did plenty of research on the interenet, watching and reading many tutorials. Read the rest of this entry »
Well the first week of 2011 is just about complete and what a busy week it has been! The new look website has been launched, so check it out, make some comments and share with your friends. Let us know if you happen to come across any glitches so we can fix them up!
Of course, I could let the first week of 2011 go by without making some cakes!!! My cousin arrived in town this week with her husband and two littlies and we have not seen each other in quite a few years. It was great to catch up over a BBQ and of course some chocolate cupcakes for dessert! With one special cake decorated to celebrate Tippi’s birthday.
This week I’ve also been playing around with cupcake cases.
I just love those lace looking cases and have been dying to try them out. They are a little on the expensive side and in my research about the product, I came across someone who has made these cases themselves using paper doylies. I decided to give them a try and I think they look quite sweet. I will still be trying out the bought ones in the future.
This month I plan to try out some flowers so keep an eye out for these! If you have a need for a special cake this year, please feel free to contact me via the contact form, I would be delighted to assist! I would like to encourage all of my customers to provide feedback on my site. Thank you
