I have been "caking" since my children were small. Baking since I was 13 yrs old, by my Mother's side. I took my 1st lessons from a Cake Decorator who had a small shop in my city. Store is long, long gone now. Just dabbled. Fast forward...my niece was getting married..., and I said....
"I can make your wedding cake!!" Nothing like jumping in with both feet!!! Haven't looked back since. 99.99% self taught with the exception of the early lessons and one Wilton course @ Michael's. And did take a basic fondant/gumpaste class with Lynne Jury of "Let Them Eat Cake", Hamilton, Ont., who started the Canadian Cake Decorators Guild, CCDG, of which I'm a member.
This is just a hobby...have sold a few cakes, but do mostly for family & friends.
Recently retired, so more time to make cakes, look at cakes.....and practice, practice, practice......

Fofucha is the term to define a doll made from a kind of plastic name Foami in Mexico or as well known as Goma Eva in Spain, they are very popular in Spain, Brasil and lately in Mexico, you can create a lot of characters for center pieces and kids parties, I have just post my first fofuchas in my web page if you want to look at them. Its only the little mermaid and a Halloween Mummy, but I will post a few more after I finished them.

Also you can google it as how to made a fofucha in you tube and you will find lots of tutorials.

Here is my web page link to the fofuchas.

Hey June, I replied back on my profile so not sure if you can actually see the message. Not sure how all this works quite yet. Just want to say that I live not far from you actually. I live in a small town just outside of London, Ontario. My family and I love to visit Burlington such a pretty place and has the closest IKEA! Lol! Thanks for all the nice comments!
