Wow! Has it really been since November since I’ve last posted? Obviously I missed all the “big” blogging topics- Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and my bday. Arrrggg.
The last few months have been challenging technology wise. My car decided to run into a pole covered in concrete… in a parking lot, while going five miles an hour. Then, my phone decided to be naughty by not letting the other person hear my voice. My MacBook thought having a fuzzy grey bar down the middle was a great design choice. Notsomuch.
Technology and I are building trust again, but I still have one eye open just in case.
Well, besides all these hiccups, I can say the last few months have been truly sublime. I feel like such a happy girl that I often want to pinch myself! More on that later, but for now here’s a bunch of photos of things I’ve made recently.
We had to make a two tiered wedding cake out of fondant and include any type of flowers. The cake is enrobed in white fondant (for some reason it looks pink in some of the pictures) and has white and blush-pink flowers. There is also a silver chevron pattern on the bottom and tiny white, blush and silver balls around it.
I LOVED making flowers.
I think mine turned out so beautiful and realistic. It was very time consuming- I wanted them to look REAL and the only way to do that was to have super thin petals.
The flowers dry out over time, but the petals are flimsy and slightly sticky and ooohhhh so fragile when you’re working with them.
I kinda feel like fondant and I are best friends.
Here are more fondant flowers, just a different technique. Each person seriously made like 40 flowers by hand this day. They kinda look like molds, or cutouts, but trust me, they are not. I was inspired by this and this … both images I saw on Pinterest.
Okay, well I know these are only two things but I’ve got to run! I plan on getting everything up within the next week or so.
See ya later alligators!
