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 🙂

Carnations

I’ve been taking Wilton Decorating Courses over the past month. The first was Decorating Basics, had to deal with sticky, foul smelling, overly sweet buttercream from a tub – I have to say it wasn’t my favourite class to attend and I’m so thrilled to be done with that! Now I’m halfway through the Fondant and Gumpaste course and it’s really fun. Fondant might not be my favourite thing to work with all the time but it definitely beats buttercream, hands down.

The flu bug’s been pretty vicious to me – I’ve been coughing and spending the most part of the week in bed. And with all that spare time on hand, I decided to practice making Sugarflowers. Just carnations tonight, more over the week!

Yellow Carnation – Made this in class, under G-‘s (Wilton Instructor) supervision!

Peach Carnation, done tonight.. the only successful one after wrecking the first two.
