What is an anniversary without a cake? – This said by the girl who requested gummy cakes when she was a little girl – well…not a proper party, right? Luckily our friend & baker Anna came to the rescue creating the most adorable cupcakes with our figures made out of foundant so we could celebrate this second year of blogging with a sweet touch.
Before starting this sugary post, have you already checked Samantha Heather this Monday with her 3 inspirational bits, she is a wonderful photographer and kind soul, isn’t she? We feel lucky to have guest bloggers in our humble home sharing their most precious moments, thanks girls!
Now, let’s go again to the cake, shall we?…Anna took our About image and with colored foundant created a little figure for Dani, Juno (the cutest! because well, she is also in real life) and myself. She made two of them beforehand but came to our home so we could make together Juno and give the final touches to the complete ensemble.
It was so much fun to learn a little more about the craving tools for the foundant and her steps & technique to create the figures. In short, the basics include making good rounded balls and then give the shape with either the tools (preferably since you won’t leave your fingerprints and it’s more accurate) or your hands. It’s exactly the same feeling as working with clay, with (edible) glue and everything.
Do you play with foundant from time to time? After the experience I thought it would make a very fun workshop for kiddos, plus they get to eat their figure afterwards! Are you wondering were our figures are? Don’t worry they are not in our bellies, they will be displayed at home inside a flower pot :) Thanks again Anna for playing with us! You’re a sweet one! :) – no pun intended! (or maybe it was… ha!)
