Cupcakes for baby shower

2014-04-30 17.26.28

The designs on these cupcakes can be made by using impression mat, moulds and cookie cutters! Had a wonderful time teaching this class and having a fun-loving student helps a lot!

It’s mid-week, folks and tomorrow’s Labour Day. This means I can spend time with the hubs and the LO!

“When God closes a door, He opens another.”

And that really happens to me. If you have been following this blog, you would know that I resigned from my teaching job to look after the little one (LO) full-time because both the hubs and I felt that this is the best arrangement for her, at least for the first few years of her life. I love teaching, everything about it, and to leave this vocation is a blow to me.

Being a SAHM has its perks and pain and I find it crucial to get away from the LO at times, just to maintain sanity. I turn to baking and further hone my skills in cake decorating by going for courses. And one fine day, I was offered a freelance job at a cake decorating school. This is an awesome arrangement because I get to teach again, on stuff I love to do and I can choose when I want to teach (times when I need some ME time!).

I didn’t really share this publicly because I don’t know how far this will take me but now I’m ready.

In February, together with a group of lovely ladies, I attended a training on creating really huge and beautiful cakes from an instructor from Planet Cake. We would all be assessed on our skills and cakes because if we pass, we get to teach the similar stuff!

And I’m pleased to share this piece of good news with you: I passed!

These are the cakes we made.

It’s really fun as I learnt quite a fair bit of techniques in creating these cakes, which includes drilling and airbrushing.

At the end of the day, the family is the beneficiary of the cakes and they got so tired of them that they asked me to give them away. Arghhh!

I’m thankful that the hubs gives me total support in my hobby and my parents who helped to take care of the LO while I was busy during that period. My hobby is really taking flight and quite literally, I am flying off to somewhere soon to learn more about cake decorating.

Life has taken a turn, and this is really quite unexpected. I’m thankful for all these opportunities!
