Funny bunny

Let's just say I've always wanted to try this and finally got the chance. I'm pretty pleased with the results. The green letterings are piping gel with glitter... fancy or what?!
Now, if only I had all these branded goods in my wardrobe!

Made these for a friend's brother's 60th birthday bash. Guests thought it was part of the deco!
Oh, and I got another cake display stand in my collection! Yayy! Thanks Bhav!

Carrot and walnut cake with cream cheese frosting.
Something seems amiss with my bunny, I can't quite put my finger on it....
Anyone ...?

PME Professional Diploma in Sugar Flowers

We kneaded and kneaded, added colour and kneaded some more. We rolled, we stretched, dusted, cut, frilled, pierced, layered and screamed at our failure to create something/anything similar to what Calvin showed! *mumbles under our breath.... what did we get ourselves into?!*

The last day (graduation day) was the most taxing. We dusted, and dusted and sneezed a rainbow of petal dust. Then came the binding of the flowers. Some took notes, some didn't.... others screamed, "Calvin, help!!" But we persevered, although come 9pm some were packing up and prepared to leave unfinished. Let me give you an idea of how long a day it was, I left the place at almost midnight!

And so we all graduated, and we have pictures to prove!

Now where was I ......?

Gosh, it's been so long I've forgotten how to do this! No, I lie... it's a cop out for having all the pictures in a jumble! The layout usually goes awry, it always does.... I don't expect it to be any different this time. I've no idea what I'm doing wrong!

My iBook crashed. I lost everything *sob, sob* All my music, bits of info on baking and decorating, saved Bookmarks, my manuscript (did I mention I was writing a recipe book?), pictures of my works are gone (I think I have most of them here and in Flickr, so that's a consolation).

Having said all that, here are some highlights of what I've been up to.

May I present the easiest design in the world!

Some wedding favour ideas.

Something decadent.

For the little ones.

A star is born. I know, that was corny....

For the football fans.

When you're out of ideas for kids, racing cars are always good!
