Tiered or stacked

Learnt how to stack properly. I could still make the cakes a little more leveled as I could see that the top one was a little slanted!
Leaves are painted with copper lustre dust!

Baby cake

I loved making the baby...made out of mexican paste (mix of fondant and gum paste)...why the heck they call it that I have no clue!!

I dyed the fondant a blue - this makes it hard to keep the fondant nice and clean..but I suppose if I used some lustre dust it would hide finger prints on colored fondant.

Day 3 - Sunflowers

This cake was a lot of fun for me. This is a little different as we had to join pieces of fondant, since basketweave is used, then crimp, and decorate.

Day 2 - Swags and roses

Roses were so easy! Swags were a little difficult to control and glue...but practice makes perfect.

Simply simple

This is the first cake. We were taught how to cover cakes in fondant and use some plunger embossers and cutters!

PME Module 1

I am taking professional classes by PME, taught by Sheila Brooks of Cake Craft Shoppe. What a wonderful instructor! This module is on pure fondant. The class is taught and then we have to come up with our own cakes with inspiration from cakes made by Sheila... so the following are what i managed!
