My daughter had a DREAM………..she dreamt of a Ballerina and so she went around telling anybody who would care to listen to her that Mum is going to make a Ballerina cake for her birthday……she just wanted to drive home the message……If she wished and wished it would become true :-)
I heard the message but I was a bit down in the dumps and a tad bit LAZY to start….and I had a new hobby that I was bit more interested in than cakes added to the mix this time…….PHOTOGRAPHY.
I did end up making her realise her dream ( what are mums for ?? I ask you ) but I didn’t plan so well ahead like I used to with all my previous cakes for my kids. Besides with this one because of my hands I needed my hubby’s help in making the board ( drilling, cutting etc.. bits) . So we only managed to do the board the day before her birthday…. tsk….tsk.. so after a sleepless night …..ooops I modify that…..what had happened was I was GOING to stay up but went to put the kids to sleep and guess what I slept off too……but obviously I must have had some nightmare or the other ( maybe my daughter crying ‘My mum didn’t make the cake for me, she doesn’t love me’??) ’cos I woke up and It was 1: 55am . So from then on till 2pm I was rushing around making it, then had to clean the house and make some snacks ’cos some kids were coming over from school. Luckily I had made the face and body couple of days back, a saving grace.
I still wasn’t happy with the cake and also didn’t get a proper chance to take photos of the birthday girl and the birthday cake. So can you guess what happened????
I gave cupcakes to the kids and the next day patched up the cake again , the cut bit, to look good as new and added few details like happy birthday tag etc, fixed up the hand that kept falling ( ’cos there was no time for it to dry properly before ) and took these photos…
First time ever using Wafer Paper…..one of the best find in cake decorating…Whoever first started using it…Thank you Thank you so so much :-). All edible gravity defying cake except for the internal support.
Like my daughter , I had a DREAM too……what if I can make a Ballerina look like she is playing with a ribbon and jumping off and flying in the air……..a beautiful SOARING BALLERINA… and now will YOU all be kind enough to tell me whether I have realised my dream or not ? :-). My first ever Gravity Defying cake !!!
Thank you for looking and for all your Support. Sorry about the lengthy writeup.
