Reflections….


Last 5 weeks have been amazing.  It all started with my birthday and my birthday gift. I celebrated my birthday last month and received an amazing gift.  My niece in India baked a lovely cake for me. My husband baked blackforest not once but twice during that day…one for my students and colleagues and another for me again in the evening!! Here is a glimpse of the love showered on me…

My niece baked this with my sister:)
My loving husband's creation:)

And now for the gift!! I have just finished my Diploma in Sugarpaste which was my best birthday gift ever. I have been busy very creatively during the last 5 weeks:) I have been posting the photographs every week, however did not manage writing a post for my blog. I am so sorry about this. But here we are. Have a look at all the hard work put in, please click on the picture for better view:


I learnt about embossing and frilling….it was quite a tough time getting a frill around a circle!!! Anyways, I did it :))

Further,I learnt about modelling animals using sugarpaste….the most enjoyable lesson of all!!

Next was bows and sugar roses. I also made a rocking horse using florist’s paste. The mice bride and the groom were for homework 🙂

Last but not the least..my master piece. I hardly had time to think during week to decide about the master piece. This is so because I am doing a teaching course as well. So the assignments took a hell lot of time and all I could think for my master piece was a peacock on top of a stacked cake. I so much wanted an Indian theme, but circled down to this maroon peacock on the white sugarpaste.


That was a reflection of my lovely birthday gift..I hope you all enjoy it going through it as well!!

    1. Sayantani, I tried working out posting bigger picture but it stretched and spoiled the whole effect. Hence thought of posting collage which can be clicked for better view.
