Happy Belated Birthday Shaun~

*sigh* I sometimes wish I had 100 hours in a day...and that I never had to sleep, or was never too tired to do anything! It's been weeks of "hectic-ness" for Su...and she even forgot to wish her dear friend - Shaun a Happy Birthday last week. I'm such a sh*t sometimes. I couldn't even come up with a decent cake for a birthday lunch we had this afternoon.
Shaun's such a nice guy....always full of ideas, he's been such a sweet and thoughtful friend...and the best I could do was a remote control. *shakes head*..
Well..it isn't exactly a regular TV remote; it was personalized specially for Shaun..filled with his favourite movies, games, and handy buttons for generating cash...etc. *grin*I've been designing so many cakes lately; for friends and for cake sales...my creative juices are being squeezed to its last droplets. It can be frustrating coming with something good..and still worth the time/$$... and after that, just praying like hell that everyone's going to be happy! *laughs*
This was done in less than 1/2 a day...probably the fastest cake I've ever sculpted. Not because I did it in a hurry and I didn't care; but rather just cause its flat...nothing complicated in icing something flat. :)


...I did however put a fair amount of thought into it initially... I didn't want to make him something too big as we were having lunch at a busy restaurant, but I couldn't come up with something to say "Shaun" all over it...
He's just too difficult to ....'categorize?' if you must? *laughs*
He's cool....very thoughtful...chatty...loves music...plays too many computer games...loves consoles...cooks delicious food...enjoys cuisine...works a boring job....and has a nice hairy chest *laughs* ...and single ;) any girls out there looking for a decent guy?

Hi there,
I found your blog b/c I enjoy baking and cooking too..I live in the states and there are some food here that I cannot get therefore I try and make them myself. I like the "skin" on your cake I was just wondering what kind is that or is that fondant. Do you know how to make fondant?If so can I have a recipe? I tried once and it failed. I was going to give up but then I decided to try asking you b/c I was actually thinking of making my own wedding cake. Any suggestion for that??Thanks..keep up the good work :D
