Busy Bee

Was rather busy the past 2 weeks and somehow neglected this blog!
Anyway, I was busy splurging on books at the recently concluded BIG BAD WOLF Sale. It's the 4th year in a row that I've attended and so far, this time it's the best in terms of venue, logistics and organization. Plus this year, I managed to score passes for the media preview sale which made shopping much easier cos there was no maddening crowd!

I've been rather busy baking and caking too! Here's my latest creation : a 9" rich butter cake and 4 cuppies for little Kristen's 2nd birthday. Her mom and myself decided on a cake based on one of her favourite songs : Old McDonald Had a Farm. Had tonnes of fun making the 3D animal cupcakes - my favourite one being the sheep which was a last minute idea. The cupcakes were baked in Wilton's Silly Feet silicon cupcake cases. The entire cake is fully decorated at the sides : barn, apple tree, fence, tractor, Old McDonald, E-I-E-I-O, chicken and duck in pond. Kristen's mommy says the cake was very delicious and she says that I can now set up shop already. Not very sure about the setting up shop part as I think that I am still at the amateur level.... anyway, would love to apprentice or partner up with another cake designer.... or should I start "Sugarcraft Delights" or "The Sweet Tooth Fairy"???
