Earlier this year, I was asked to make cupcakes for this little girl's baptism. The baby booties topper was my first taste of modelling with fondant/gumpaste.
Since then, I've tried to mould several other things from gumpaste. Not much really...mostly just flowers...but I welcomed each learning experience with much eagerness.
Even though I was given such a short notice to make a birthday cake for Isabella Rose's first birthday, I happily accepted. I could have just made a very simple cake but I wanted to make this one quite memorable.
|This is my FIRST ever gumpaste figure. Inspiration for this came from this video. I was apprehensive to do it at first but it all worked out great!|
|To support the skirt while it dried, I put a small single muffin mould underneath.|
Below is the finished cake which I absolutely am very thrilled about. Apart from the candle (which I stuck into a rose), everything is edible. I actually placed a small inverted cupcake under the girl's skirt for added support.
I've never met Isabella Rose. I've just seen pictures of her. But I will forever remember her as she grows older because of what I've learned and accomplished as I made cakes for her!
