Something old & something new, something borrowed, something blue.

…no its not a wedding, but I do have everything stated on the title in this post! 😛

My third try at modeling angry birds characters – I think they’re starting to come to life 🙂 I’m happier with their expressions now compared to the first time I modeled them. See, practice will eventually make perfect, it true!

I like green pigs. Alot. They’re the most fun to model!

And on a whim, I decided to enter Cake Over Heel’s cupcake competition. I didn’t want to do something conventional… and although I’ve been itching to do more figure modeling, I thought I’d try something new – drawing.

Tattoo-Inspired Cupcakes 

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Art has never been my strongest point but I do like how these have turned out! Drawn freehand with edible ink markers. 🙂

More food porn! ;)

Its been a very long week with exams, orders and work so I haven’t had time to update this space till now! 🙂

Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting 

A couple of orders back, Serene ordered some cupcakes for her mother for Mother’s Day as well as for her family to share. This time round, her brother ordered the exact same flavor – Red Velvet. He didn’t have any design in mind and his only request was to keep the design in red and black! I loved how the flowers came out and I hope he did too! 🙂

Last weekend was my final class for Wilton 3: Gumpaste and Fondant. I spent the night before finishing up S’s brother’s order and I wasn’t really in the mood to bake a 4″ high cake or make an exorbitant amount of flowers for my final cake.. after all – less is more right? 😉 Its a little bare, but I’m happy to have conquered the proper technique of making roses, so no complaints from me!

Angry Birds.

These little guys had me slaving for close to 6 hours… and I had to make two sets of these. Phew, about 10 – 11 hours in two days. I hope they’re close enough to the actual thing, I’ll probably make a couple of tweaks here and there (cause I think the yellow bird’s shape’s a little off.. ) but yeah, I hope angry bird fans out there are as happy as I am 🙂
