I’m welcoming November with wide open arms, simply because there are too many birthdays to celebrate and we are awaiting the arrival of a dear friend’s baby boy!
Can’t do without cakes on birthdays eh? It’s thus a good opportunity for me to practise my craft!
First up. I did my first figurine – mother and child birds. Haha. I added tylose powder to fondant so that they will harden and leave them overnight facing the fan. By the second day, they are almost ready but I thought I should continue to let them firm up.
Covered the cake with Italian Meringue Buttercream as the crumb coat and used Satin Ice. However, the fondant is way too soft for me to manage and I find it too sweet for my liking. I think I should just stick to my usual brand.
After some trial and error, this is the product. Simple eh?
It’s a good start to November!
