This is just a practice (to-paint) cake and for nobody in mind...as i'm typing this, this cake is still in the fridge untouched..lol! I had major fondant issues with this cake and the fondant kept tearing...bugs me to see tears/crack lines on the fondant. Strange.. i could only blame it on the weather and for me not turning on the air conditioning.
I painted this free-hand and it's my first time painting directly on the fondant cake. It feels different and not like the usual painting on paper..:S. Definitely more room (lots in fact!) for improvement for sure! I need to find the right consistency for the paint - food colors i meant. **The flower pattern that i've painted is made with reference to Donna Dewberry's paint work in her book.**
I've been slacking in commenting on my blogger friends' blog posts (you all know who you are..:D..but i do try to catch up whenever i can..)..because i have been busy with translating Pierre Hermé's Macaron book to English with the help of google translate..lol! Yup..here it is...
Don't ask me why I bought this since it is in French and I don't read or write or speak French. I suppose this is THE Pierre Hermé Macaron book and it was sitting on the bookshelf staring at me..so how can i not buy it?! LOL! So far, i've translated 20 initial pictorial pages and google translate has been doing a very good job for me. LOL! I can safely say i can now understand the ingredients listed in French in this book. :D
