Ushering the New Year
Out with the old, in with the new! Well...not exactly.
I had this "huge" plan to create a fabulous cupcake design to usher in the New Year...sadly, that was not to be! After the baking frenzy, which were pretty much for the whole month of December, I abandoned the idea. Mainly, due to exhaustion and I realized that I had to seriously rest my body and recuperate. I will also be taking a break for the whole month of January 2009 and hopefully, to be back in action, sometime in February.
I'd like to share a couple of cupcakes which I did for a fabulous customer with a fabulous request for a fabulous Hollywood Glam Party theme cupcakes for her fabulous 21st Birthday! Enjoy! (Note: Unfortunately, I did not take fabulous photos of the cupcakes as I was pressed for time to complete back to back orders)
Wished I had more time to create more fabulous toppers with the Hollywood glam theme in mind. All toppers were made from homemade MMF (Marshmallow fondant), except for the Hollywood sign (which I used gumpaste in the end) as the MMF ones took "donkey years" to dry! Aaarggh! Not helping when one has time constraint.
Verdict: The cupcakes got a two thumbs-up from the fabulous birthday girl and her entourage :-)
Clearly, my "painting" skills left much to be desired (Bear in mind, I was not an Arts student) All paintings used were food colourings and edible ink markers.
"Ready for take, camera roll, Action!!!"
