Pinky is home!!

My darling friend and housemate -Pinky, will be returning home from her trip to Adelaide today! I've missed her dearly and decided to make a chocolate cake to celebrate her home coming. I modeled a little cartoon girl with a pink frock out of sugar paste (I know...it looks a little deformed, i definitely need more practice with making human models out of sugar). She loves melted chocolate toppings which drizzle down the corners of the cake; so I did that as well. The spray of stars and wording was done with piped royal icing and the little flowers the girl is holding are lavender flowers from my herb garden. The bottom of the skirt which looks puffed up is a cut layer of cupcake I had made earlier in the week. I laid the model down on the piece of cupcake and let it lie down on its skirt which was flared up with thin layers of rolled out pink sugar paste and embossed with a wooden skewer around the corners.

I'm studying Building construction Management at uni. It's not much to do with food, but I get quite a bit of free time in my own kitchen. I'm hoping set up something to do with cakes in the future...just don't know exactly what yet! haha just currently learning as I go along. THanks for the encouragement!
