I made my first ever fondant cake for my best friend’s bridal shower 2 months ago.  It was quite a disaster, the cake was dry. All ll I had at that time was just a block of purple and white fondant to start with and some creativity (NOT a single bit of artistic skill unfortunately, due to my lack of art genes).  Even though there were lots of flaws, the bride and the guests were still very impressed by my effort to put together a 2 tier fondant cakes together.  After that experience, I started to hunt for more proper tools so I can make a better cake next time.

So here I am, spending 10+ hours on a second fondant cake for an university friend for her bridal shower.  Luckily purple is one of her favorite colors too, so I’m reusing the leftover purple fondant and more white fondant to cover another 2 tiers cake.  This time is a smaller size cake and I want to record this process.  Hopefully my next fondant cakes will mark more improvements.

This time, still lots of flaws, but I know how to COVER up (with decorations and ribbons!!)  This time there are more “WOW”s and I feel really satisfied with the hard work.

Halloween cookies

I just borrowed a book from library “Painted Cookies” by Akiko Hoshino and am amazed by the enthusiasm of cookie artists.  I’m not good in drawing, but I can copy and paste some simple drawings, and Halloween cookies will be my first project using just 3 simple colors.  This is a good book to read:
