What a wonderful way to start the year. One of my close friend's daughter is fascinated by powerpuff girls cartoon and wanted blossom, bubble and buttercup - the three kindergarten girls,who have the mission to save the world, for her birthday.
I looked for inspirations to conjure a theme for the cake. I thought of the powerpuff girls, who will wake up at midnight, place a cake on a table on their bed, stand on a pillow and sing the birthday song for her. And this is what i could make, using marzipan and fondant on a madeira cake. An attempt to bring joy on the face of the little girl and match her imagination with my brave ability.
Our office opened after the Chiristmas holidays, before the birthday (6 January 2007) and I was caught up with new year plans, meetings etc. Considering me as a learner, please overlook the imperfections and the finesse. I was short of time, had just one and half day and it has been raining in Francistown.
As for my little darling, her gleeful smile said it all !
I would also like to offer COMPLIMENTS FOR NEW YEAR to everyone and a big 'THANK YOU' to all who visited my blog and accepted me as 'The Sugarcrafter'. Your comments and words means a lot and I know the worth of my everincreasing 'circle of inspirations'. In retrospective, 2007 has been a happy year...I passed my first year of MBA, tried to make wedding cakes, anniversary cakes, engagement cakes, birthday cakes, experimented with different techniques of cake decoration and look forward to the new year with you all around to critique me.
Among several e-mails that i received for the new year, here's few i liked:
'Everybody sees how you seem, however, only some know who you are'
'Perhaps God would want you to become acquainted with many different people in the course of your life, so that when you meet the right ones,
you can appreciate and be grateful for them'
