This cake was made for a 4yr old who is made about dinosaurs and dragons. It's chocolate mudcake, covered with a layer of ganache and a layer of fondant. It even survived a road trip of over 10hrs!

23  COOKING / Dessert / Beach theme wedding cake on: December 12, 2009 03:14:02 AM
This is a vanilla fondant and dark chocolate ganache covered chocolate mud cake. I live close to the beach here in Australia so in the past few weeks I collected some shells with great textures and made moulds from them by pressing them into some plain pastillage. Pastillage dries very hard. Then I used some ivory coloured gumpaste and pressed that into my moulds and made shells; these were allowed to dry for a few days before I coloured them with cream petal dust; the dolphin bride and groom and the frangipanni (plummeria) flowers are also made from gumpaste. The widely spaced cornelie type piping is done in royal icing. The tiny frangipanni flowers on the bride's veil were tiny ejector flowers.

I didn't tell the bride that I was including some frangipannis (plummeria) on her cake - I knew that they were a favourite flower. When she arrived she had frangipannis (plummeria) in her hair and was just blown away that I had included them on her cake.

24  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Golfing Fairy on: December 06, 2009 05:44:56 AM
Cold porcelain and acrylics. Everyone who golfs should have one of these. A putting fairy, or drive fairy personally I think a washing up, tidying up or cooking fairy would be good. At my age, the toothfairy just doesn't give value for money. Tee hee
25  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Lemur - wot do you mean we're out of coffee?! on: December 06, 2009 05:40:16 AM
This is made from cold porcelain, and coloured with acrylics. The little coffee bags were printed, cut out and glued to the base. He was a commission for a lady golfer who is mad about coffee. The colour of the scarf matches the colour of their uniform.

This was the first etched piece I attempted. I love celtic and medieval design. I had this round piece of mirror and it just seemed to scream spirals.

28  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Mermaid Mirror on: November 24, 2009 04:33:05 AM
My very first piece of stained glass was a mermaid. I just love that sound as you run your glass cutter across the glass. It's very satisfying for some reason. So what should I do with the mermaid now I've made? Hmm she'd look good on the side of a mirror. So that was my next project. I love the glass colours and the glass nuggets for bubbles.
