It was hard not to think of my own graduation while sculpting this adorable little degree holder.I am to complete my years of undergraduate study at Uni in Dec 2007. Its been almost 4 years now since I've begun attending lectures, tutorials and fulfilling assignments to acquire my Construction Management and Property Degree... only to realize;... It was cakes I wanted to construct all along. *laughs* Metal and concrete wasn't exactly on my mind when my lecturers spoke about foundation; core strength or materials. I was thinking density; points of stability and ingredients.
Well...*shrug* I only began cooking in 2004.. when it became a necessity living alone. Adventures in the kitchen soon led me to crave beautiful foods...and soon; my love for the oven was undeniable. I baked. A lot!... and eventually progressed to frosting my baked goodies.
Well... I'm here now.. sculpting cakes as a part-time job; wondering what to do with this degree I'll be granted at the end of the year.
Construction and property doesn't sound too bad; but Su won't be Su without her cakes. *tear* My housemates watch me frost and sculpt cakes every week...with new orders filling up my inbox daily; they wonder what my life would be like if I didn't have a cake to frost. *laughs*
I'll be working on more cakes when I graduate and get back to Malaysia... Singapore is one other location on my mind. There will probably be a couple of issues with working in humid and warm weather... but I'll work things out. For the pure love of CAKE.
Mmm... beautiful..cakes... *giggle*
Well..enough of my rambling; back to talking about the brown bear.
June had ordered a cake for a good friend of hers who was graduating with a commerce degree. He loves coffee, cute teddy bears and finance. She was very pleased with how the cake turned out...and I bet "Jay" who's graduating would like the cake too! I generously smothered the cake layers with strong coffee and stacked them with mocha buttercream.
The cake was covered in fondant..and details were painted on. I love its lil' magazine! :P
