Be like Stuart

This is Stuart.

Stuart is made of sugar.

Be like Stuart, be sweet!


Since Bill is a worldwide sensation, I thought Stuart could join him!

This is my first try on figurines and I’m really happy with the result. Stuart is a new achievement and brand new possibilities. You will see more from his familly soon. Stay tuned 😉

 

 

“Mosake”

 

I present to you the “mosake” (mosaic cake)!

Me and my better-half celebrate our birthdays on the first days of January and, of course, the dates could not go without a cake.

The original idea was to make a simple cake with a mosaic band in the middle, but it felt wrong. Well not wrong… but little. As I was assembling, it was just too cute to be only a band and I went for the whole thing.

The succulents were a personal challenge. I have been thinking about succulents for a while, since they are everywhere in the (use-to-be-dry-not-anymore…) California, and this was a great match! The colors complement well and they look well placed.


About:

  • 6 x 8 in (it was quite tall);
  • Orange and chocolate cake;
  • White chocolate ganache filling;
  • Gumpaste succulents and cords.

Special thanks to Valerie Pradhan, from the Wilton Method, from who I learnt the technique to make this beauty possible.
