Family Reunion






My uncle's and aunts were bragging about my cakes, so my aunt organising the family reunion asked me to bake the cakes. Ofcourse this was something I wanted to do...


Oh yes, I was really happy that my cousins of 9 and 12 helped out and decorated the cupcakes, don't they look cute?

  12. These are very well done. The fondant is just perfect! I once took a course in cake decorating. I didn't make it past covering the cake with icing. >.<"

  13. @French Bean, I find making ice-ing pretty difficult :D Hahaha... and i'll let you in on a secret...it's marzipane not fondant :P Maybe that's why? I don't know, don't work that often with fondant. Thanks for stopping by!! :D
