In the garden

This week has been hectic for me. Having to teach for half a day, every day, starting from Tuesday and ending on Friday(tomorrow) and thereafter, rushing off to the store to work till 9pm each day. But teaching to me, is stress relief for me. A break from work and to do all things creatively.

I had the chance to meet up with a fellow blogger who also surfs at my KC forum. She came to Singapore from Brunei just to take up a 4 day baking and cake decoration class with me.

Our week started on Tuesday when I taught her to bake 2 cakes. The 2nd day, I taught her how to roll fondant, add and mix colours to create the different shades and we did some figurines too. From penguins to baby booties to roses to food icons.

Today, she learn how to cover a cake in fondant. And also how to bake the delicious Nutella chocolate cupcakes. And look at what she did..and she said, "This is my first time with fondant".

And I still don't believe you?

And while she was fiddling with her cake...I made these on my own.
