Macro Shots on Cake Decor (Part 2)

These are the various shots doing the "stringwork"... Royal Icing & a tight round nozzle were used to pipe this kind of work. The goal is to pipe in a straight, thin & consistent manner.

Royal Icing dries fast, and breaks easily.

This entire process not only tests one's patience, but also your eye sight. If any lines were broken, you have to start all over and pipe again.
In other parts of the world (western), cake decorators charge them by inch.
So if the cake its done beautifully, it can turn out quite exquisite.

Breathing is compulsory...
Thanks for viewing.

Macro Shots on Cake Decor (Part 1)

I love taking macro shots, and looking at it, on food especially. Mastering the art of photography is an entire world by itself.

However, i am not discouraged by the whole "mambo-jumbo" of handling the camera.

I hope you enjoyed the photos...

3 Tier Wedding Cake

A very elongated 3 tier cake, with pink, white and soft green color selection.

Hand made the sugar roses. I love the cornelli lace, its on the second tier, where you see
free-hand moving piping; looked elegant from far. Its the untidiness that makes the whole cake presentation appealing.

Gold & Ivory

This one i did for a special friend, its her wedding. i could have done a 3-tier for her. Much more elegant.
But that's not important...
I wish her well and happy.

World Diabetes Day!

Hi all,

Its been long time no posting, have been busy with orders, duties, intensive cake decorating workshops & classes.

I thank God for what He provided, for being able, for good health, for supportive family & friends, for innner strength, for patience, for the guts to take this order.

I still find it impossible to believe that my family & I, finally fulfilled thousand over cookies.
THOUSAND over...!

I must thank God, God is great, for He has always been there for me & my family.

The time spent sourcing for supplies,
the rejections,
the sensations of last minute changes,
the jam on the road that we have to endure,
the painstaking process for rolling the dough, repetitively for more than thousand over times, the numbness on the heel,
the soreness of my palms

its incredible, i can't believe its finally over ...

But i believe that there will be more to come...
