Here is my contribution piece “Handy Pandy” for Sweet Fairy Tales cake collaboration organized by Lizzo Marek.
Handy spandy Jack-a-dandy
Loves plum cake and sugar candy,
He bought some at the baker’s shop
And out he came, hop, hop, hop.
I chose this rhyme because I thought a little boy who loves sweets would make a cute sugar piece. I also love miniature stuff, so I wanted to make some sweets with fondant. The most challenging part was to make the tiny candy jars out of blown isomalt, and to make the isomalt windows. I wanted them to be clear enough to be able to see the cakes from the outside.
