Preparing for Min's Birthday - A family project!
Labels: Cake Decoration
Grace Jie, Mom and I started on our project to decorate Min's birthday cake. Well, I read that sugarpaste decors can keep for up to a month - just have to let them dry. So, we are preparing in advance!
Added Traganth Gum to the Satin Ice Fondant to make sugarpaste.
I made the hat and head for the smurfette.
Grace Jie made the body (dress included) and hair.
Mom made the hands.
I made the gift boxes (suggested by jie), roses, cut-out the letters.
Jie (and Min) did the mushrooms.
Mom made the nice blue flowers. Mommy is actually very creative (and more hardworking than me - my flowers have stems that are the same colour as the flower). It was also mommy's idea to make a see-saw.
We spent 7 hours making all these! From 2+pm till 10pm. Actually we have very little to show for the time spent, but it was fun! Quality time with the family.. ;)
Note to self: I have no idea how to stop the sugarpaste from cracking. Hmmm.. too dry? too much gum?
