I'm playing with ribbon! :D It's another way to decorate a cake beside decorating cream. My trials on 1-tier cakes came out nicely and the 1:24th scale wedding cake came out well too.

My latest wedding cake replication orders have a couple with ribbon decoration. One came out with satisfaction on the classy look of the cake, creamy white cake with ivory ribbon and red roses! :)

Guess how many roses are on the cake. :D

Let The Sun Shine In...

Yessssss! Let the sun shine in, flowers are blooming! :) It's such a good feeling with all these flowers around and you can see I'm so much into flower cake! lol

My previous flower cakes were with plain, mono-tone flower. Like plain red, purple, yellow, etc. Playing with shade and tone makes the flower cake nicer. I saw it but I didn't get it (by then). :|

Just got a message from one of my mini-jewelry customer that she enjoy the bracelet she ordered and got many compliments on it too. I'm so happy to hear that. I made the mini-jewelry with dollhouse miniature quality and details and glad that all my effort I put on the work are noticed!

Life is beautiful, just let the sun shine in... :)

Roses Are Red...

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet;
And so are you...

And my version is:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I am here *look around*,
And there are you!

Sweet isn't it? :D

This miniature cake is also sweet. I made this cake using pinkish tone flowers as main theme and tiny pale/pastel color flowers as decoration. The heart of the cake are deep pink roses surrounded with orange-pink roses and white rose buds. Beneath the roses are tiny 4 petals light green, yellow, pale lilac, pale blue flowers.

The cake is in white cream color with decorating cream wrapping around. I, normally, make chocolate cake for flower cake. I love dark color of the cake which drives beautiful color of the decorating flowers, it gives nice contrast. But white cream cake made flower cake soft and sweet. Love it! :)

Flower, Flower, Flower...

Making miniature cake is fun and relax (no, I don't say I'm addicted! ;)). There are variety in both size and color and that you can 'play' with flower cake. :D

I had a look at photos of my previous mini-cake and found out that half (or more) of the minis I made were flower cakes. They are in different color, style and shape. When I start making them, most of the time I have no 'design' in my head. I just 'go with the flow'.

It's also fun making cake body. My regular cake body is a simple circle piece of clay or for sliced one is layered clay. How many way can we make our cake body different? Have to think about that and try something new. ;)

Why Do I Love You So...

Oooo - Oooo - Oooo - Oooo.......

My darlin' I have often thought of things we used to do
And now I sit and wonder why you're gone and left me blue
You said you'd never leave me
You said you'd never go

Oh my darlin', why do I love you so
Oh my darlin', why do I love you so

Oooo - Oooo - Oooo - Oooo.......

Is it because you stroked my hair
When you were by my side
Or is it because of the tears you cried
When your little puppy died
You said you'd never leave me
You said you'd never go

Oh my darlin', why do I love you so
Oh my darlin', why do I love you so

Oooo - Oooo - Oooo - Oooo.......

Why do I love you so...

You Are Melting My Heart...

Cold and sweet! Yum, yum, yum! :)

Yes, simply like that. No matter how long you would like it last it will melt. The only way you can keep it longer is in cold place (like fridge) and away from your hand even if it breaks your heart. Otherwise, closely adore it in your warm and gentle palm, yet it melts down...

Either way it melts and it makes your heart melt...

I was asked from crafty moms about making play food - kids activity. Well, I think first of all you will need play dough or any colored air dry clay for your kinds and scale up cake or ice cream to make it easier for kids to do. I recommend cookie cutter to get your cake body, paper punch for leaves and flowers or bears, etc. But if you enjoy baking, bake clay will be perfect! I'll write more when I figure some more thing out. :)

My Tiny, Little Green Backyard

Happy, I am happy you can see, you can see... la la la laaaaaaaa (I'm singing. :D)

Spring time for me is not just long daylight time and sun-bathing. When I was young (just a couple years back ;)) spring time always bring up and bring back my love of fairy tales. Birds and bees were my tiny, little fairies. Small mushrooms were their houses and the fairies and elf were cooking, talking & playing in their spring backyard.

Still remember those time fairy tales were 'real' to you and that you were searching for tiny tinker bell all over? Ever wish you can fly and spell with a magic wand? I found bones on my back and thought they were my wings and that if I'm a good girl the wings will grow up and I can fly someday...

Have a closer look... What do you see? :)
