My first rose =D

I have always admired how professionals make such wonderful roses out of whipped cream, so now that I have the right Wilton tip, a.k.a. #123, I just had to try my hand at making one with the help of the fabulous instructions by Kinuskikissa and here is my first rose:

Excited to pieces right now, I have to admit ;D

Jaws.... ;D

Today's project, shark cupcakes! The boys saw them in Martha Stewart's Cupcakes and soooo wanted me to make some : ) Made dark & white chocolate cupcakes and covered them with blue whipped cream frosting, blue cake sparkles and black shark fins.

And here they are:

Found a scary shark pic so made some matching cupcake wrappers =D

And yup, you guessed it, the kitchen looks thereafter as usual... so see you later! : )

Happy Easter =D

I've had a secret project this week, making cake decorations for my godson's Christening today =D I wanted to try my hand at making a baby because we had joked about it with my dear friend and I just could not let the thought go.... ;D I found a great mould on eBay by Karen Davies, here is my first ever baby decoration project made with marzipan that I coloured with Wilton's icing colours =D

Here are the decorations I made yesterday of which some ended up on the Christening cake today =D These are a combination of sugarpaste and marzipan to get a nicer blue colour, since Wilton's White-White icing whitener that I ordered didn't make it here on time ;D I used Wilton's Royal Blue for most of the decorations and Rose for the face and hands : )

A really fun project indeed and what an EXCELLENT day it has been today =D

Hope you have had & continue to have a wonderful Easter holiday!!
