Well the 10 / 10/ 10 comes but once in a blue moon and so this cake and cupcakes were something that suddenly came to my mind with the help of my friend Hafiq and Hanifi. I think by far this was the hardest cupcakes I have done simply because we made everything by hand, the dots and icing, the fondant. Everything was by hand except for the little red heart which given the chance we would have made as well.
This is Hafiq’s and Hanifi’s first foray into cake decorating. And I must say they were extremely good. Here is what we made.
This is the first time I also tried cake painting, and after more then 20 years of not holding a paintbrush to actually paint, I finally overcame the fear and did it. Well I did the
words, and Hanifi did the rest, but now I have the guts to do so and will conduct a class on cake painting real soon. I suddenly feel I can do it so let me do it a few more times. Then I will teach it at class.
Initially we were all worried because once painted if things go wrong we had all of a few hours to have a back up plan, but once we got started, it was really a redeeming feeling.
It was a good thing too that I tried it because cake painting is different
from the way flowers are painted. When I do my flower making class, painting method is different. Well its all a learning process and now I want to paint cakes.
I am and so were the boys, really excited with the end product. The effect was way above my expectations, and I believe this is excellent team work. And it really was because the cupcakes took nearly 8 hours to finish and that two with two people doing it and the cake took a total 7 hours to finish with three sets of hands. And the result!
