Pillow Cake, Pretty Sprays and more.........

A pillow cake !! A delicious marble cake covered in fondant and a baby elephant topper...
I have a workshop coming up in Delhi this June on 10th and 11th and have this in one of the classes.. I hope people enjoy doing this as much as I did..





I have also done some spray arrangements .. The different flowers are covered in the Flower and Foliage Workshop ..


















In the midst of making these sprays I had some more fun with fondant and made these little things.. They are really miniature creations and would look great on petit fours and even chocolates.. What say??

Kitten


Baby boy's bib and feeding bottle




I still have more to share......

Some of my blogger friends have graciously passed on some awards.. I have really delayed putting up some of them on my blog but I thank each one of you to have me in your thoughts..Afterall its the thought that counts and matters most!!

Dear Swati,
The creations are majestic....the Pillow looks like a magic carpet for a cutely enchanting elephant. Also, love the selection of the colors and the mix of elements in the sprays.
Hmmm....new look of the blog....I was sort of fond of the old look, but as all things, newness can be a little ....well....new! to get used to...
Keep up the creativity and the balance.
