Playing with a "New" Technique

I previously shared my various frosting methods for miniature cakes. Yesterday, I tried the fondant type method of frosting a mini cake, something completely new to me. It is a bit of a challenge to wrap the 'fondant' around both layers but I had fun creating these little cakes.  And I like the results! The green one is my personal favorite.


 This purple cake needs something around the bottom edge, I think. A frill of yellow?  It will be going to a new home along with the pink cake below. I am donating them to a cancer patient bakery project. I could have sliced these as well but positioned the flowers incorrectly. 

It's a rainy, dreary day here. I wish I could be making more of these - hoping to perfect the technique - but work took precedence. Have a great rest of the weekend! Toodles,

My Gift from Cheronda has Arrived!

This gorgeous tea set was a gift from Cheronda at Cspykers Miniatures, a mini friend of mine via Facebook. She's well known for her tea sets in a wide range of styles and colors. I'm proud to be adding this to my collection. I'm thinking it will need it's own special display setting.
Have a fantastic weekend! I'm hoping to be doing some creating of my own.

Toodles! ~ Cyndy
